Today I talk about two fantastic artists from Romania: Ildiko and Flavia. I discovered their creations on Etsy, They have a beautiful shop DoubleFoxStudio where you can buy art dolls, drawings, art objects, pins and more. I love their the way they draw, the sign that they use to represent the characters. It is all very surreal and funnywith a little bit of dark style.
This is the text that you can read in their “about” section in Double Fox Studio shop:
Three years ago we started to be very interested in three dimensional art objects made of all sort of mediums, not necessarily wooden or stone sculptures, but made of new materials and mixed media. So we imagined drawings as being three dimensional. We had no clue of what or how to do that and we looked for a sort of clay which could be good for modeling and drawing. We tried many but nothing fit our expectations.
Flavia: That’s when I thought I should try and make our own technique and it worked. I create the shapes of the dolls and Ildiko draws them. As for the animals we both make them and I also started drawing, Ildiko encouraged me to do that. I am happy I started it again. In the jewelry pieces we both do the modeling and painting. At this moment Ildiko makes the drawings on the jewelry objects.
We love to workIng with clay, paper, fabrics, pencils and a camera. But we all know that people like working with the tools they know how to work with.
You cannot say that you don’t like to play the piano if you have never played it you can only say you can’t play it. So one has to start doing something in order to know whether he likes it or not. We are looking forward for the new materials which we’ll discover during our artistic evolution, if we’ll feel the need for some new materials at a certain point.
