Using a blend of collage and digital imagery, Bozena Rydlewska aka Bozka,  creates fantastical forms of life, filled with colour. We like the intensity created by layering so many elements together. The birds and insects found in her imagined forests are hybrids of multiple ruffles, tufts, patterns, and feathers. But, as much as they are bright and powerful, they are delicate and feminine. Here, she describes her work and what she does.

I am an artist and illustrator from Warsaw, Poland. “New Botany” is my new series of illustrations derived from my dreams, color obsessions and fascination with the secret nature of plants; inspired by Max Ernst’s collages and the strange atmosphere of old botany books.

I developed my own technique which is a mixture of hand-made collage and digital drawing in Illustrator and Photoshop.

    Like your use of color and the elegance of your creations. In the first picture I see a female- shape-imagination? Beautiful!
