Shiri Ashkenazi evokes fictitious feelings with these mythical illustrations inspired by the famous poems of Yona Wallach. With peculiar mirrored images and overlapping collage-like layouts these illustrations tell a mysterious story that leaves you begging to understand more.

Shiri Adshkenazi is an illustrator from Jerusalem. She draws and sketches with the utmost emotion and strives to allow her feelings to come through in the artworks she creates. From fashion drawings to book art and even commercial illustrations, Shiri always presents her illustrations as whimsical windows into her mysterious mind.

Using watercolors, fine markers and pencil Shiri Ashkenazi sketches images that colorful contrast with the shadowy characters she brings to life. I find the expressions on the faces to be the most interesting and telling detail of these wonderful Shiri Ashkenazi illustrations.
