Never underestimate the power of a book to tell a story. Used as an accessory to style a table or corner in your home it can tell your story – your personality, tastes , travels. A unique coffee table book used as a pedestal for a small item may turn out to be a real conversation starter. Speaking off— imagine the conversations , if you were lucky enough to have in your home ,one of Ekaterina Panikanova’s gorgeous book paintings, first seen here.
The St.Petersburg born, Rome based artist creates whimsical scenes on the insides of vintage books using black ink and then moves them around at will to create these installations.
Part-paintings Part-installation ,Wholly-magical.
As a lover of books – real books with lovely “old book smells”, frayed fabric coverings , yellowed pages and fantastical stories about magical faraway lands, these art works made my day…nay week!
