SOMETHING ILLUSORY – LLANAKILA {ARTIST TO WATCH}

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

There are some artist’s who like to experiment with white space. Others like to make sure every inch of the canvas is covered in thick lines, vibrant colors, and a clear statement. Victoria is the latter.

Victoria [or LLANAKILA (lana-key-luh) which means “victorious” in Hawaiian] deserves a medal for the depth and illusory of her art. An urban style that lends its traditions to street art, she uses her love for vibrant colors, music, pop culture and femininity to explore the endless limits of creativity.

As your eyes meander the definition of her paintings, you can almost feel the intoxication of the sharpie fumes taking over. While in its entirety her art may appear to lend itself to entropy, each stroke creates a maze of hues and textures. She uses the likeness of artists like M.I.A, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna while putting her own spin on their image. LLANAKILA is redefining urban art one beautifully complicated expression at a time.
