Featured Artists: Maryana Kopylova

 Maryana Kopylova is a Ukrainian artist who makes sculptures, paintings and plushies of creatures she calls ‘Krakazyabra’. All of her work she currently is showing regardless of medium is based around the same world and back story that she’s created. Her sculptures are made with mixed media and included elements like polymer clay, felt, plastic, traditional doll eyes, beads, glass and more. Her plushies are usually felt, with beads and hand painted details and her paintings are usually acrylic. There is not a lot of information about her or her work currently but I do hope she will launch a website or a storefront soon as I absolutely adore her toy sculptures and photography of them plus the world she has created. Outer worldly creatures that act as guardians and keepers is a very common theme in artwork but her execution and distinct style is not only colorful but also utterly fascinating and you can’t help but be drawn into her world and want to know more about them.

  1. I so can imagine the magical world that these little creatures draw us into…I have been dreaming about these dolls since the day I saw them which was yesterday.. :) I am getting obsessed with these…I have my own magical world inside my head & I can totally imagine Mariana’s. I have no words to describe how much I love these…specially the magical world these creatures have created for me…

    1. They are breathtaking, I do the same when I look at them. I wish I could get in touch with the artist and see if she sells them or anything. Follow her on Instagram, if you have.
