Claudia Toran‘s illustrations are bright, vivid and energetic pictures that brighten up the grey monotony of the world, take the beautiful colours of nature and splash it across the page in all its glory; her line fast and fluid, her design aesthetic confident and assured.
This fresh approach to illustration is rooted in Toran’s love of process and an expressiveness that comes from her interest in music, with a beat that keeps going, moving, dancing across the page. And while her work is primarily in graphic design and illustration she is also keen on the moving image and participatory artwork, installations that envelop us in her passionate love of colour and form.
There is a dreamy quality to these images, a promise of something more, something outside our reality. A magical and surreal impression of the ordinary that surrounds us, a landscape imbued with a deep love and passion for the smallest of things, of everything. They are pictures that remind us of the beauty of the world and encourage us to look anew, afresh and rejoice in it.
