Russian artist Alexandra Khitrova creates ethereal illustrations that have an alluring sense of fantasy. The soft, dreamlike works feature the setting sun, brilliant night sky, and the animal spirits who inhabit it. We see an owl, bison, elephants, whales and even jelly fish presiding over the desolate landscape below. Their presence is calming, and we feel a sense of tranquility within Khitrova’s beautiful illustrations.
Khitrova began her career as a motion graphics artist and within the last year decided to explore concept illustration. It was a completely new venture for her, but the reaction to her work was positive. She was soon getting commissions for her new style, and it’s only grown from there. Khitrova is now working with a team of writers and artists on a feature film.
