Watercolor is such a beautiful and intricate technique. I'm always taken away by the subtlety of watercolor pieces. It is like artists have a magic wand and create these beautiful stories with their work. And if you like to imagine what is behind an artwork, you will probably think that Kseniia Yeromenko is always hungry or always thinking about food. She creates amazing watercolor pieces that will certainly make you hungry. From pizza to sushi, pretzels to eggs, burgers to fries, Kseniia has a great hand for depicting items we love to eat.
Get that napkin ready because you will be salivating after you see these pieces. The details and beautiful colors of Kseniia's work will certainly take you on a food related journey. It is almost food porn. Take a look. And remember to visit her Behance page for more.
I was born in Melitopol, Ukraine and currently live in Kiev. When I was younger, I enjoyed painting people and when I turned 7 my parents registered me in art school. A few years later I had to quit the school because of progressing problems with my vision. I was able to commence painting again, when I was 15. I studied fine art in art college. Upon graduating I was accepted into Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Fine Arts and studied graphic design.
Eventually, I realized that working with graphic design software was not my cup of tea and that I enjoyed creating art with my hands. As a freshman in Academy I had an assignment to depict an object of my choice using nine different techniques. I chose to paint cupcakes. I received an A for my project and my fellow students loved it as well. That’s when I decided to paint a few more cupcakes, doughnuts and cookies and started selling my paintings on Etsy. Then I added pizza, burgers, and fries to my collection.
Although I can work with oil, acrylic and gouache and different graphic mediums I prefer using watercolors. It is quite a difficult and interesting technique for me. I prefer squirrel and kolinsky brushes and sometimes use synthetic ones. People often tell me that my artwork makes them hungry, and I am pleased to hear that!
