With visuals in mainstream media becoming more unnecessarily complex, it’s refreshing to see work from artists like Naomi Wilkinson, who returns to traditional values through rendering technique and subject matter.

You’ll notice the images in this gallery depict people living simplistic and traditional lives in Spain. They are enjoying various activities and do not seem to be bogged down by technological advancements. For those who live in North America and can sometimes feel overwhelmed by consumerist societies’ overreliance on technology, these images offer a great deal of escapism.

Viewers will also notice Naomi Wilkinson illustrates her images in a very rustic style. The visuals appear hand-made, giving it a very human quality that contrasts the sterility of digital artwork. This, in turn, makes audiences empathize with her images more readily.
