Shoo Away Your Blues With This Artist’s Dreamy Portrayal Of Nature, Women And Literature

What Makes It Awesome

Art of Misanthropy is a niche brand run by the home-grown artist and illustrator, Mohona Bhadra. Her artwork is a story told in dreamy shades of blue, blue-green and black ink, mostly inspired by her fervent love for nature and inspirational women. Stop by this brand to get your paws on one-of-a-kind products, ranging from original art pieces as well as high quality art prints to beautifully hand-painted bookmarks, stickers, notebooks, t-shirts and tote bags.

Mohona works primarily with abstract, illustrative or semi realistic pieces, in a combination of watercolour, acrylic and ink. We are in love with her neatly measured strokes and detailed line work in black ink on white paper that conjures up images of striking flowers, animals and silhouettes. There is something so poetic in appeal about her art that is hard to put in words. Like the silhouette of a woman in the midst of thick vegetation, titled Drowning/Breathing or portrait of another woman with thick, lustrous hair with two fish for eyes, titled Blind. 

She also conducts live sessions and online workshops where you can pick up basic tips and techniques on how to do simple floral illustrations and minimal landscapes. Check out her Instagram for more deets on that.

Pro-Tip

Commission her to liven up a dull wall with her stunning artwork or get her to customise a print on utility products such as notebooks or tote bags.
