99 feelings.

July 16, 2009


I love this project by Belgium based Art Mind. It is a series of babushkas with added textures to convey different feelings. Here’s how artist, Mitsy explains it:

“It derives from a project I did many years ago reflecting my self-portrait. I called it ‘how the outside can tell how you feel inside’. I started out with 9 feelings and then I suddenly thought of making 99 of them…”

I love the swirly “giddy” one above…You can see all of the babushkas on her flickr page…or check out her blog…she’s multi-talented, and has lots of crafty things to share…{including a rad scratch-off lottery-ticket tutorial}.

Would it be terrible to mention Jonathan Adler? I was initially reminded of his relief pottery. Although I still love his work, now I think his designs are a bit commercial which is okay, but the work from Art Mind is much more inspired. They’re now in my favorites! :)

Hey Stacey, thanks so much for this lovely feature! I love Giddy too, she’s so feminine & organic! :)
I didn’t know Jonathan Adler so I googled him. Nice work he has! :)
