Much like her collages, Andrea D'Aquino is a marvelously magical combination of talent. An artist without definitive labels, D'Aquino works as an art director, illustrator, and graphic designer. Her gorgeous work has been featured in such publications as The New York Times, The Washington Post, Elle Magazine, and so much more.
Above is an editorial featuring "women taking control of growing their financial lives" (left) and "the pitfalls of succumbing to inner critical voices" (right).
D'Aquino's dazzling modern illustrations breathe life into Lewis Carroll's classic Alice in Wonderland . The lush, multi-faceted images remind us of how truly zany Wonderland can be. Check out an amazing array of pages from this re-creation.
This series, entitled Morocco, was used for the store Anthropolgie as fashion shoot backdrops. Each is a combination of collage and illustration.
D'Aquino does not believe in perfection: "I do paintings that tend to be abstract, and I cut them up and cannibalize my own work and repurpose them."
When asked what part of her work she likes best, D'Aquino said, "The very tactile part and the enjoyment or the colors and the materials that have a sensual or sensory quality."
Below are works from her Winter series, in which she explored the lives of indigenous Alaskans.
