I’m enchanted by these Mirdinara Illustrations and Decor by Dinara Mirtalipova, who is a self taught illustrator/designer. The illustrations have a lovely retro feel, like the illustrators from the turn of the last century, and of the course, the Slavic folkloric, magical influence.
Born and raised in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, she eventually landed in Ohio. Raised in Soviet Uzbek culture, Dinara inhabited Uzbek/Russian folklore that still influences her work.
Currently Dinara works from her home studio in Sagamore Hills, OH. She uses a wide range of materials and tools, like carving lino blocks, gouache, acrylics and many others. She has been working with many great brands, publishing companies and ad agencies and she is continuously looking forward to making new friends.
