NIGHTTIME AND NEON COLORS BY KATYA DOROKHINA

Katya Dorokhina is a Moscow based illustrator developing a unique style which is becoming more and more recognizable in the art world.

Her core signature is the combination of nighttime palettes and neon colors, filled with contrast, bright shades, and glitchy effects. Her figures are simple and geometric, but she could spend hours on tiny details.

In Wonderzine, one of her most recent works, she crosses the difficult issue of sexual harassment within the family.

Her drawing technique is made up sketching before editing the elements in Photoshop, where she may experiment and play with light and color, probably this colorful approach is due to her nostalgic view of the past 90s.

Her impressive resume includes commissions for Interview MagazineEsquire Russia as well as fashioned-themes gifs for The Blueprint and illustrations for women’s magazine Wonderzine. Though her biggest break came when she designed a panel comic for H&M’s Kenzo collection, telling “a noir story about the love, rebellion, and freedom of art.”

The illustrator added: “I was inspired by the bright, floral patterns, wild colors and cool ambassadors of the collection.”
