Evgenia Barinova, Illustration

Born in Moscow, Evgenia Barinova now lives in London. “I work in a couple of different ways— I mostly work digitally but I do paint as well. It does depend on what I am doing work for, whether it’s for my own use of for editorial/design use. I feel these days there is a lot of time pressure because everyone knows a pretty image can be done quickly digitally and there is no point commissioning someone who takes ages to create a very laborious piece of work.” (apeonthemoon.com, artist's site)
