Artist Creates Mesmerising Images that Skilfully Blend Adorable with Eerie, Charming with Uncanny
UK-based artist Peppa Potter has a talent for creating captivating, ethereal images. Her creations draw heavily from folklore, mythology and nature, resulting in a unique fusion of fantasy and reality that is distinctly her own.
Her “Abandoned Creatures” series features a series of fantastical creatures, each one surpassing the last in cuteness. Peppa’s use of a greyscale palette and soft lines combine to create simple yet unforgettable compositions. Despite their sometimes disturbing appearance, her creatures are not meant to inspire fear. On the contrary, they evoke empathy, a desire to understand their stories, their loneliness, their abandonment. It is this emotional resonance that makes Abandoned Creatures so compelling.
