Artist Nikira Creates Another Visual Masterpiece

We haven’t posted anything about our local watercolor wonder and moleskin mayven, artist Nikira, since early 2010. It’s high time that change.

Nikira — real name: Irina Chtypel — illustrated, and posted on an arresting still life of a sexy, pink cocktail dress draped on a garment stand outside of the haute couture shop Lace & Satin, located at 1719 Voorhies Avenue just off Sheepshead Bay Road. The dress ‘pops’ against an otherwise monotonous backdrop.

A few words from Nikira on about her creation:

Dress. Brooklyn, Sheepshead bay. It was striking and unexpected to see that vulnerable feminine dress on the winter street. I used ink and few Kuretake brush pens. Scanner didn’t pick up variety of blue.
