Pure happiness! This is the hyper-real work of Spanish painter Mónica Ajenjo. Yes. they’re paintings. What? True story. I just read an interview Mónica did with with Create Magazine, and I immediately starting writing this ribbon & balloon filled post. Here’s one of my favorite excerpts from the interview, specifically about this series:
Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.
“‘Bows and Balloons’ relate to our inner child and trigger memories of happiness and joyful hope. Is there anything more exciting than opening a beautifully wrapped present? They are positive omens of everything good that is to come. To me, objects such as bows and balloons are contemporary representations of the celebration of life.”
Ahhh, beautiful. We could all use a little celebration at the moment, no? You can read the entire interview right here. ps. She went to law school before becoming a full time artist. What? Another true story.
