Japanese artist and web designer Yuki Nakano’s portfolio pleasantly smacked me in the jaw with its intricate designs and strong colours. Her digital and drawn illustrations are inspired by ‘jewellery, cultural artifacts and other beautiful things made by people’.
‘I’m not a full time fine artist, but I do freelance art/design/web full time at the moment. I’ve done work for Firefox, University of Queensland, MdN magazine, and lots of other small businesses. I live in Brisbane and exhibit around the area’.
Her tools include pencils, ink, watercolour, acrylic paints, and even nail polish for extra sparkle.
Yuki plans to develop a new body of work that is more personal, and reflective of her Japanese heritage and childhood. More of her work can be found at her site: Yukister.
