Gabriella Baroush is a talented author of the atmospheric and intricately detailed illustrations, that border on the surreal and give us this unforgettable magical feeling after. We have a pleasure to post our exclusive interview with Gabriella!
L: Please, introduce yourself.
GB: My name is Gabriella and I’m a 26 years old illustrator. I’m on my last year of B.DES in graphic design major in illustration in Bezalel academy of art and design. I’m a designer’s toys collector, and i especially love vinyl figures. I have a great passion for vintage toys, objects, pattern and colors. I own a lot of books, most of them are children’s books, graphic novels, and basically every book that is illustrated would fascinate me. I collect Alice in Wonderland versions because it is my favorite book :)
L: Describe your style in 3 words
GB: surrealistic, detailed, emotional
L: How was born the idea about Old Postcards Interpretation? Do you collect postcards or maybe something different?
GB: I love vintage letters and postcards and i have a lot of them. I think its magical to collect pieces from life of people that lived long ago, so I took that piece of information and gave it my own interpretation by illustratie the situations and the objects mentioned. I hope to continue this project one day :)
L: Music means a lot for you. Is your iPod ready for summer?:) What’s on your playlist for the upcoming season?
GB: Oh no, his still on winter mode, now playing Bon Iver, Feist, Bowerbids, and Cat Power but I would love a summer recommendation!
L: Do you think academic education is “must have” for illustrator to become successful?
GB: I dont think its a “must have”, there are some great talented illustrators out there who had no academic education and still they are very successful. Yet I do believe it can contribute a lot for one self development and professionalism.
L: All your works are tender and charming, but we feel loneliness in some pieces. Are loneliness and love your favorite themes?
GB: You know, I dont think about it when I draw. I just feel and everything kinda flow from there. I guess the final work represent what I felt at the time I draw it and still everyone gets something else out of it.
L: And our special question:) Imagine that you are sweets, what kind it would be and why?
GB: I would definitely be a chocolate!
Thank you girls for having me <3
