My Modern Shop Spotlight – Solongo Monkhooroi’s Fairy Tale Illustrations

Mongolian artist Solongo Monkhooroi combines Western pop culture and Eastern traditional art to create wonderfully imaginative illustrations. Growing up amidst the beautiful natural landscapes of Mongolia and then moving to the United States to pursue her career in illustration, Monkhooroi has clearly been influenced by the various forms of art from each region.

In addition to visual art, Monkhooroi draws inspiration from fairy tales and folklore, merging the fantastical stories with her own imagination rich with characters and colors. Her portfolio boasts an imaginative flair that integrates traditional Mongolian painting with unique and whimsical pop art.

We're pleased to announce that the images featured in this post are now available as prints and canvases through our art store, My Modern Shop.
