Color is the touch of the eye, music to the deaf, a word out of the darkness…

… Wrote Orhan Pamuk in “My Name is Red”. Color makes me happy – it soften my sorrows, gives me hope and makes everything feel a little bit better.

By extension, colorful, vibrant art makes me happy too. I love finding new artists whose work I wanna put up on my walls. And recently I was lucky enough to happen upon just such an artist: the Russian born and Moscow based, Slava Fokk.

His unique style (which, for me, brings to mind some sort of Modigliani-esque Lolita Lempicka) immediately drew me in and now… I’m hooked. The fact that I haven’t yet figured out how much his pieces usually go for (probably too much) or if one might find prints of them available for sale, pains me greatly. In fact it does so to such an extent that I am considering contacting the artist himself. If/ when I find out more, I’ll update this – just in case you find yourselves as mesmerised by his work as I am.

Until then, here’s some of my favorite pieces from his website

  1. I’ve nominated you for a bloggers award! Check my blog out tomorrow at 12 pm to see the full post. 🙂

  2. Wow these illustrations are amazing! And I love the contrast in colors, I hadn’t heard about this artist before but I’ll definitely look into his work;) I only wish I had the talent to paint my own haha but there’s this other artist that I love, Timi Hayek, his work a little different but you might like it;) Hope you have a great day!!

  3. Hello and welcome to Lifestyle Counter 🙂

    I’m right there with you – I think having a great voice or the talent to create (whether it be painting, sculpture or what have you) are two of the greatest gifts a person could be granted.

    Would love to check Timi Hayek out but all I find online has to do with the clothing designer – are his fashion illustrations what you meant, maybe? If not, do drop me a link to what you had in mind.

    Have a great day, too!

  4. You’re right! I thought of Lempicka and Modigliani as well. Thanks for sharing this new-to-me artist. Fun post!

  5. Thanks! Since you enjoy this kind of thing, do keep an eye out – got a few more interesting things up my sleeve for future design posts…
