Today’s political landscape is a cacophony of confusion, disillusionment and constant source of stress for many people living worldwide. During the wake of the US elections, many of us watched with curiosity and dread at the goings on under the new administration. These feeling served as inspiration for this image which portrays three (or more) creatures hacked together in a manner that looks both incongruent and deeply disturbing. The head monster scrutinizes the bottle which contains the world and confers with it’s two friends “Confusion” (the jester) and “Fear” (the sharded glass woman). The effect is symbolized by the magic brew which renders all senses immobilized. Luckily…the ‘story’ is not over!
Influenced by her favorite writers, science fiction concept artists, film directors and architects, Juliana’s artwork is high on imagination, composition, and detail. She excels at colour and composition. Juliana also moderates an online Instagram community called Discover Prisma where she curates, mentors and teaches principles of design to people all over the world. Juliana draws her inspiration from life, nature, narratives and stories in the literary and digital world. She can be found hidden away in coffee shops observing people and photographing curiosities.
