5 artists from 5 different countries

Hello, everybody! Today I'm determined to write letters to my friends and family, so I thought I could use this post to find some inspiration. I don't know, looking at what artists do always gives me an extra boost to try to do something original (even though I know I'm never going to be an artist, I like to see what they do).

So, these are the five that have made it to my list of favorites today. I chose five people from five different countries. Let's see if you find them as inspiring as I do ;).

Karen Kurycki from the USA
I love her watercolor pieces. Don't you think she's amazing? I've always been curious about the use of this material. If only I knew how to draw and paint!

People too from Russia
They are illustrators and also work with paper cutouts. And they love kitties! How could I not like them?

Nod Young from China
He's a typographer who is also known for his work in advertising and the creation of logos.

Matthias Heiderich from Germany
He is an urban photographer. I love the colors in his photographs.

Mauro de Donatis from Italy
He modifies photographs of musicians through a technique called triangulation.

Hope you enjoyed this inspirational journey!
