Fashion provides each one of us an avenue to express selves. Fashion designers express themselves through creating of pieces that change the face of style; fashion stylists use it to express their curative skills, while fashionistas use it to express their personalities.
One Dubai resident is however using fashion in a completely different way. Maria Zheleznova uses fashion to inspire her art.
“My art is about gut feeling, personality and energy. My fashion illustrations focus on the emotion of the subject which I depict through my choice of colors, strokes or even medium; ranging from pencil or pen to watercolors fashion illustrations. Says Maria Zheleznova.
“Everyone can paint; they just don’t know it yet.” is Maria’s Mantra.
“Watercolors offer a lot of room for improvisation. They are bright and unpredictable making them the perfect medium to transmit emotions. When I paint I allow the colors to lead me and sometimes the final product surprises me as well.” She adds.
