Anyways the topic of wings reminds me of Roza Khamitova and her Shovava project.Roza Khamitova, a Melbourne-based fashion designer originally from Kazakhstan, has created a series of scarves that definitely exploit the bird motif in a creative way.
As a visual artist Roza had always drawn most of her inspiration from the natural world around her in the mountains of Kazakhstan.
Just take a look at the results.
In 2011 she launched Shovava, her personal line of women’s clothing based on her hand drawn paintings and prints of the animals, plants and patterns found in nature.
Roza was enchanted by the beauty of wings, its structure and symbolism.
First, she sketches big wide-spread wings on paper with a light pencil, adds black ink to create a three-dimensional feel and fills with stunning watercolors.
The designs used on these digitally printed scarves were hand-painted by Roza, who maintains an Etsy e-shop called “
Shovava” highlighting her work.
Wow. Just wow. I can’t believe these are scarves. Roza is incredibly talented. To view more of her work, please visit her Etsy Online Shop.
