Australian artist Lily Piri: Magical illustrations

Lilly Piri

There’s something so quiet, soft, and yet arresting about Lily Piri’s work. I can feel the sadness in the eyes of her subjects and also their sweet effervescence.

Her drawings skills are amazing. I’d love to buy a piece from her when we finally move to a new apartment. I’m mesmerized by her lines and colors. I could stare at one of her pictures for hours making up narratives in my mind.

If I ever go to Australia I’d love to visit her studio. I picture her working in a sunny room with a little bouquet of delicate flowers on her drawing table and a soft kitty curled at her feel. If I were ever to commission someone to illustrate the Little Prince, It’d be Lily.

    reminds me of a cheerier, simpler klimt (just the way the eyes are shaded, really). lovely.

    I love Klimt too. I agree with you on the eyes. The delicate lines too.
