New kid on the block: illustrations by Monika-Evgenia Kuznetsova

Monika-Evgenia Kuznetsova from St. Petersburg Russia dramatically changed the course of her studies while completing a degree in philology by pursuing her true passion – illustration. Now in her second year of illustration study, she has amassed more work than any student I have ever met (in case you haven’t heard, many brilliant artists can be super lazy).

Extremely hard working and versatile, Kuznetsova does not pigeonhole herself with just one style. Her collage work is reminiscent of Mario Wagner and her classic illustrations remind me of the Art Neauvou posters of Jules Chéret. With her raw talent and strong work ethic, Kuznetsova is an exceptional illustrator that could go head to head with any established pro. Upon completing her degree, she plans focus her love of Jewish-Russian art into poster and book design.
