|It's Going to be a Good Day|
Today's feature goes to Kristiana Pärn and her whimsical paintings.
Pärn is an Estonian born artist living and working in New York City. When she was 17, she began her art career studying with Estonian painter Marje Berlokko. After graduation, Pärn moved to New York City to study animation at The School of Visual Arts. Pärn has focused exclusively on illustration work since 2005, having started out as a textile designer for various Manhattan studios. In 2006, Pärn established her own studio in Brooklyn.
Pärn's work has been on display in books, magazines, on cards, and in countless shows all over the world. Her work is in Ark, An Illustrated Animal Bible(here), and Illusive #3. She also illustrated the cover of the fall issue of, Park Slope Reader Magazine. Her list of shows and exhibitions is far too long to put here but is, needless to say, quite impressive.
Pärn's work are whimsical and dreamlike. They invoke deep memories of gentle times and soft words. There is almost a sense of peace, gently stretching forth from each painting. Nothing bad could happen in the worlds she creates. The animals seem aware of this, and they allow the world around them to softly exist as they float through the serene and smooth colors.
