I had to share with you the work of an amazing and talented artist who I discovered on Flickr. From Madrid Spain, Xelya’s work is like walking into a dream. A master of mixed media, Xelya layers photographs and water color designs to create images that are truly inspiring. Time and again I find myself drawn to her portraits which are not only fashionable, but modern and edgy, with an evocative spirit.
One of Spain’s most cutting edge artists, it is no surprise that Xelya’s work has a place in the fashion and marketing world, producing hip designs for Apple’s Ipod campaign. I would just love to have some of her work for myself. Like the Love, You, Me series below. Absolutely beautiful.
I hope that someday soon Xelya will grace us with her work here in the United States. It would be fabulous to view it up close and personal. Or, maybe I will just have to make a special trip to Madrid to meet this truly incredible and gifted artist.
For more of Xelya’s work visit her Flickr page. Give yourself some time though, you may find yourself perusing it for hours.
