Paula Duro Renders Imaginative Pictures Featuring Native People

Paula Duro would have no problem joining the team at Disney or Pixar with these colorful and imaginative illustrations. Featuring indigenous people in magical settings, the Argentina-based artist uses acrylic paint to dazzle viewers’ eyes and put them in a carefree child-like mood. Looking through Duro’s work and not having a smile on your face is a near impossibility.

Interestingly, Paula Duro uses acrylic paint to emulate other media like pastels and airbrushes. It gives her pictures a collaborative quality as she mishmashes rendering styles in a harmonious and visually pleasing way. Seeing a girl seamlessly transition from a flat illustration into a more three-dimensional figure sure is a trippy sight. And the way she always tries to incorporate the beautiful night sky into her work is definitely one of my favorite qualities about her paintings.
