Juliana Bratanova
66 Birds


Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
As an artist, I am inspired by the symbiosis of differences that create the ultimate harmony. Therefore, I created ‘66 Birds’ - a diverse, indivisible, and fantastic society with 66 personalities. By outlining each ones unique features, I manifest the beauty and harmony hidden in the constant interaction between them.

How was the illustration used:
Portfolio piece / Digital art print / Print on fabric and accessories (E.g., T-shirts, tote bags, metal mugs etc.)

How did you make this work:
The technique is called ‘Digitally mastered graphite on paper’. The art process begins with a freehand drawing, followed by digital progression. The outcome of which is a creation of over 80 conceptual personalised illustrations, with a final edited selection of 66. It was a mad and exciting ‘flight’ with my birds!
