This Artist Draws Dark and Mysterious Surreal Creatures
Valentina Asadova is a Russian artist who turned her two passions into one. Fond of psychology and painting, she was doing an assignment to create the layout of the book, Synchronicity by Carl Jung, when she fell in love with the scientist’s work. This inspired her to make the mysterious illustrations she’s been working on, and you have to check it out.
Her inspiration comes from a project she worked on for Carl Jung. She shared with Bored Panda, that reading his work allowed her painting to “capture the images that I encountered on the path of inner knowledge”. Asadova further explained that, “The paradoxical nature of the psyche and the binary of archetypal forces are the subjects of research in artistic work.”
