The intricate watercolor paintings of Marija Tiurina force the viewer to delve deeply into tangled masses to extract certain elements, which often seem to be creations of a centralized figure’s consciousness. In the illustration above a man can be seen leaving a busy cool-toned realm while stepping right into an equally styled red and purple-hued dimension. Is the viewer right into a fictionalized world, or are you currently looking into the character’s mind?
Although Tiurina frequently sketches a draft of her paintings before including watercolor, a number of the pieces presented here were freehanded directly onto the paper using paint. This spontaneity is seen in a number of her new, larger works which you can find on Behance. More examples can also be seen on her website and Instagram.
