Austria-based artist Alice Wellinger creates surreal imagery that deals with the troubles of daily life and of childhood memories. Her realistic approach to these figures and accompanying subjects has a eerie effect—it’s as if they actually exist, but in a way that’s similar to a vivid dream. While her editorial illustrations are colorful, with conceptual ideas, her personal work, dealing with everything from gender to the relationship between humanity and nature, is ironic and dark.
