Amy Sol

I have fallen in love with Korean born, Las Vegas based Amy Sol’s paintings. She paints whimsical dreamlike worlds populated by girls, oversized animals and exotic plants, her storylines reminiscent of Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki.

I love the sublimely muted pallet she uses and the tantalising manga, folk-art, vintage illustration and modern design influences which come through in the imagery.

I am mesmerised by the painting featuring the whale entitled ‘i dream of a distant cousin’.

  1. Amy Sol reminds me of Audrey Kawasaki, although Kawasaki really has her own style.
    BTW, isn’t that a section of “Yume No Ato” up top? It drew me to your blog.

  2. Hi, yeah i had initially though that they were similar in style, but really once you have looked through all of their works they are not similar at all apart from the medium.

    Yep that’s one of Kawasaki’s although i didn’t realise that was its name till now.
