Congratulations To Our Artist Of The Week
About the Artist:
Maggie Malia, an illustrator based in Maryland, showcases her captivating narrative-based works through her intricate cross-hatching style. Her black and white illustrations are rich in detail and whimsy, characterized by their complex compositions and cross-hatched textures. By blending reality and fantasy, Malia’s art establishes a connection between the artist and the viewer, drawing them into enchanting scenes filled with charming characters, captivating settings, and alluring imagery.
Through her art, Malia not only tells stories but also expresses aspects of the self. Each character and element in her illustrations symbolizes a part of the abstract self, inviting the audience to see and understand these representations. With charged compositions, her artwork comes alive, capturing the ever-fluctuating nature of the self. Just as a child can move or a tree can rustle, the self is in constant motion. Malia’s work not only explores this fluctuation but also embraces it, finding comfort in the ever-changing nature of identity. Her art serves as a means to share her evolving self with the audience and celebrate the joy of this beautiful turbulence.
