When people think of psychedelic art, they usually don’t conjure up visuals involving watercolors or delicate floral patterns, but illustrator Valeria Rey Soto has managed to use those exact things to create mesmerizing masterpieces that are trippy to boot. She usually fills the backgrounds of her pieces with watercolors to produce a comforting atmosphere for viewers. She then follows that up by assaulting their eyes with prismatic and ornate designs drawn with pens. These elements are weaved together in unorthodox manners that are reminiscent of images popularly associated with the ‘60s. The completed products are unique illustrations distinct to Rey Soto alone.
Valeria Rey Soto is currently based in Olinda, Brazil, though she was originally from Spain. She lives in a little, but artfully vibrant town where she continues to produce these wondrous images for admirers.
