Artist Addiction: iLLESTration

When art doesn’t inspire me to be better it becomes completely irrelevant. I can’t say that though about my latest Artist Addiction, Olivia “ilLLESTration” Odiwe. The 23 year old, North London based artist is really one to watch. iLLESTration’s artwork mixes graffiti with wild brush strokes and even illusion to create portraits, which come together as if out of thin air. When you look at them its hard to pinpoint where they start and finish. I can look at them for hours because of the way she dissects the faces she paints and then puts them back together in her own unique way. The fluid nature of @iLLESTration_ portraits is what makes them so successful, they are an exploration of colour. Though there is a pop culture theme throughout her work, she isn’t bound by any one particular style or genre. She instinctively knows how a image speaks to her and is able to interpret the vibe on canvas.
