After the brief role swap on Wednesday that saw Bobby posting on the ink drawings of Erika Altosaar and me posting on Hong Kong street art, I have returned to form with the work of Argentinian illustrator Ana Laura Perez. Creating pieces that are distinctly feminine in style with soft and delicate overtones, Perez is inspired by “color palettes and scales, shadows and light, crystals, old nature, encyclopedias, white and gold, sea creatures, textures and shine, moss, draping, darkness and femininity, hidden treasures.”

These motifs shine through in her illustrations that move from fantasy realism to strange abstraction, playfully creating their own mythological narratives and perspectives on a female viewpoint.
