Raili Jänese Art
I am a visual art and design fanatic from Estonia. After moving to Seattle in 2018, I took time off from my previous profession and concentrated on creating artwork about the subject I am truly inspired by - a living creature.
My artwork is a combination of repeated use of simplified animal characters and vibrant colors. I am inspired by the moment when meeting an animal it does not run away but decides to stay and take a good look at you instead. Using mainly acrylic mediums on canvas, wood, or paper, I capture this moment with clean lines and vibrant colors, creating different compositions and patterns.
I have been curious about animals since childhood. Having enough possibilities to observe and get to know different animal characters at a younger age has created the foundation for my current works.
Another influence on my work comes from digital technology. I enjoy mixing graphic design elements with traditional art methods.
