Ethereal Watercolor Paintings Beautifully Capture Our Interconnected World


In a swirl of color and texture, artist Hieu—better known as Kelogsloops—paints spectacular portraits that feel both intimate and grandiose, as if the subjects hold the universe at their fingertips. The Melbourne-based creative fuses motifs of water, space, and weightlessness, combining these stunning visuals with the carefree fluidity of watercolor pigments. Together, they merge into compelling, ethereal forms.

The blending of these seemingly disparate elements is a reminder that we are all connected—that no person or place is a vacuum, and everything, no matter how small, can have an impact that reaches beyond itself. Although this idea might seem daunting, Kelogsloops demonstrates that this type of unity is beautiful.

Kelogsloops will soon make an appearance on our Instagram—he’s doing a “takeover” on Saturday, November 19 and 20, 2016, sharing his artwork and inspirations. Be sure to follow us so you don’t miss it!
