Scrawlrbox #094 made us wonder if the Midas touch was actually a curse rather than a blessing. The featured artist of this box is Iskra Sale, whose art caught our eye for it’s ethereally breathtaking artwork. Her piece “The Garden in Me” inspired this box. The box contains Wolff’s pencil set which included a carbon block, reusable Tracedown paper, a white graphite pencil, drawing paper and a gold Pilot marker.
Iskra is a fine art artist living and working in London, England. Her early childhood was spent living in the mountains with her parents, who moved there to be closer to nature, and to give Iskra the opportunity to grow and freely develop. During this time Iskra developed a deep and abiding connection with nature. “The Garden in Me” reflects Iskra’s fascination with the hidden details of life and how all around us nature grows and exists, indifferent to our presence and passing unnoticed. The garden conceptually represents a microcosm of life’s circle. We are part of this nature, and we can see the circle of life reflected in the changing seasons and birth, death and re-birth all around us. Iskra’s work is very much inspired by the constant change of nature and the beauty of silence.
A blessing or a curse? This months box is inspired by our featured artist’s delicate graphite details and precious finishing touches. We’ve packed everything you need into this box to add that metallic touch to your creations. Now everything you draw can turn to gold.
