Alexandra Dvornikova's work is steeped in Russian folklore. Beautiful and haunting, her work takes you to the middle of a forest, deep in the dark of night, and asks you to wander there alone.
Alexandra's own thirst for solitude is palpable in her work.
Being alone is rarely portrayed with such reverence.
We want to know everything we can about this forest of serene and cerebral ladies. Each illustration deserves a novel's worth of a story behind it—and maybe an orchestral score too.
In fact, Alexandra always listens to music as she draws. And her favorites make sense for the work: Animal Collective, the Books, Sin Fang Bous, Tanya Tagaq, Joanna Newsom, Gang Gang Dance, Paavoharju, Lucky Dragons, and Black Dice.
There is so much more forest to explore. Don't miss a thing.
