Meyoko

Ecuador Art Illustration

Berlin based illustrator, Melissa Murillo, better known as “Meyoko” articulate a creative predominance that is a direct line to the darker of Art Nouveau. Executed in edge free hand, with a fountain pen Black China ink and more recently Gold, the artworks by Meyoko are like open doorways to a microcosmic wilderness populated by divine entities and mythical creatures which intermingle and amalgamate to one another until they ultimately resemble, abstract and hybrid worlds partly vegetal – partly animal. Forests made of luxuriant hair are inhabited by tattooed flowers and plants ;by ravens and hummingbirds with strange silky bodies in place of feathers. An organic apotheosis executed with extreme minutia and with a creative sensibility
