There's so much to love about the exquisitely detailed, explosive art by Nanami Cowdroy. Busy yet balanced, her powerful pieces jump out at you in black and white, as she masterfully uses a perfect amount of contrast and shading.
By intertwining complex characters and objects, her pieces reflect a juxtaposition between foreign and familiar entities and environments. She gives strength to her seemingly weak subjects through pen and ink techniques, intricate hand illustrative style, and mixed media compositions.
Born in Sydney, Australia, Nanami (meaning ‘Seven Seas' in Japanese) was heavily influenced by her diverse Japanese-European heritage. Growing up with such contrasting cultures and surroundings, has greatly influenced her style of art and creative expression.
