Inshoo (also known as Shaonav)
Covering a wide array of emotions, subjects and techniques, the artist Sono (そおの) creates a intriguingly varied and charming body of work. Sono’s watercolor-esque style of painting is present in most of her work, giving it a pleasant texture and lighting depth. Interestingly, Sono is very skilled at backgrounds/settings yet she often has virtually no background or one that is design based and flat. It is this sort of contrast — between painterly, perspective based images and flat, design based images — that impresses me most with Sono and keeps me interested in her work.
