I came across Alex’s illustrations through her instagram and I fell in love. I was intrigued by her use of Filipino influences, the patterns, colours, mythology and the women, they all look strong and confident. It was nothing like I’ve seen before, so I had to purchase my own!
This piece in particular, spoke in volumes. How the woman holds the cigarette, juxtaposes with the title of ‘Mother Nature’, it’s strangely fascinating. The patterns used for the tattoo was beautifully done, emphasising the Filipino influences and showcasing the culture’s art style. This illustration is printed on a 9″x12″ matte cardstock paper.
