When I saw for the first time the works of the Georgian artist David Martiashvili, I wondered from what children’s story they were. It turned our that they are paintings and not book illustrations. Though they depict a reality which sends us back to the pleasant times of the near past, they are also powerful storytellers that unfold the imagination for amazing tales to be written.
Louise Rawlings – Mrs Spotty Wellies, Alfie and … the life is beautiful
Louise Rawlings is another talented British artist to admire. She grown up and still leaves in Birmingham with her family. Mrs Rawlings states that she could be inspired by anything but it seems that her dog Alfie is her greatest ‘muse’. Each of their daily walking turns into a journey needed to be told in pictures.
