I grew up drawing and painting almost constantly. These days my “creativity” comes out through photography. But when I stumbled onto Riona Buthello’s work, I’d found something that combined the two.
Like, c’mon. Incredible.
Many artists paint things that look like photographs, or attempt to, but there’s something about her style that aligns perfectly with my tastes. I strive to take photos of these exact moments.
From her site:
My work tends to make people stop and wonder whether they’re looking at a photograph or a painting until they see these slight textures in my work.
I would say she nailed it.
I recommend following on Instagram, too, for the video clips — it comes to life so effortlessly.
