Original Art: Kareem Iliya
It's been awhile since I've posted about Kareem Iliya's work. His watercolors featuring shadowy silhouettes have been a favorite of mine for some time. I must admit that his work was an inspiration for me as I developed the AphroChic pillow collection. We both share a love of the female silhouette.
I had to share with you some of his latest work - gorgeous illustrations that seem to tell the story of savvy women living in the city.
Beautiful and sophisticated, his work continues to have an ethereal quality. Each piece seems as light as air with soft glowing tones.
Sadly, I still can't seem to find any way to purchase Kareem's work. For now, I will continue to admire it, building a collection of my favorites here on the blog. Enjoy.
