Welcome to the land of fantasy, where mages, mighty dragons, and brave heroes and heroines roam the world. Embark on a journey into an unknown universe full of dream worlds told through the author’s illustrations and paintings. The exhibition features not only book covers or other paintings, but also selected interior illustrations, including excerpts from the books for which they were created. Most of the illustrations are painted in classic watercolour, but the painting technique varies from acrylic to oil to various shellac experiments inspired by Japanese lacquer.
