designer Maira Kalman

February 21, 2012

Maira Kalman is a designer, illustrator, and author. She has a lot of color in her work, and the majority of her pieces I have seen in researching her are gouache on paper. Her art is whimsical and bright, and also has a lot of personality and interpretation, because it is not just photography. When she was asked why she would rather use a painting than a photo, she said, “Well. A photo is true. But a painting is truer.”

    LOVE Maira Kalman. Her illustrated Strunk & White Manual of Style is such a joy to own! And, of course, those stunning illustrated editorials in the NYT…

    Cheers!
