It's very easy for artists to get caught up in details and overwhelm a piece with too many ideas, but these Felicia Atanasiu creations don't suffer from that problem at all. She hones in on what's truly important in each of her portraits and ensures that the beautiful patterns, insects, flowers and designs never overshadow the delicate visages in her work. It's this awareness that pushes her illustrations to unique territory that isn't easily reached by her contemporaries.

Felicia Atanasiu is an Antigua-based illustrator who studied her craft at the popular OCAD University of Toronto, Ontario. Even while in school, her images started garnering mainstream attention due to their psychedelic vibes and masterful composition and execution. Atanasiu's work may seem familiar since it's been featured in dozens of fashion editorials and advertisements.
