Etsy Holiday Guide: Art

Today's topic is ART. Check out Chic&Charming for more featured artists!

First up is VEDANA. The striking images are raw and graphic. The powerful lines, forms and color are bold and in-your-face fantastic. Utilizing mixed media on canvas, VEDANA works to create gorgeous prints filled with intensely eye-popping oomph. The vector illustration of Marilyn Monroe is brilliant and strong. A classic image, reworked on canvas banner.

The Bjork portrait is also quite sensational. The image was done on paper then scanned and colored in a vector program.

Each print is signed and some are limited edition. These are fabulous pieces to spice up a wall and add color and life to your world.

Linda Plaisted of ManyMuses Studio is a classically-trained painter, photographer and mixed media artist. She has exhibited her work in galleries and museums across the country. Images are eerily beautiful with an ephemeral quality created by layering images and textures from her drawings, paintings and photographs. I love the ghostly crows and pensive landscapes. These pieces are dreamy with a dark voyeuristic mood. She offerse a limited selection of pieces on Etsy, but more of her work is featured on her website.Images for each of these shops were lifted from their etsy site

So go find your favorite print and start your own art collection!
