Everyday Illustrated Portraits by Badass Genius

All the way from Kiev, Ukraine, Maria Paschenko also known Badass Genius begun designing illustrated portraits after being inspired by Ghanian Illustrator Gyimah Gariba.

“About two years ago, I saw some illustrations made by Gyimah Gariba. It moved me in such a way that I decided to buy colour markers and started to create my own art. I choose to draw only African people – Africa inspires me a lot with its spirit, nature and powerful people,” she said in an interview with Design Indaba.

“My artistic mission is to open people’s minds using beauty – exposing something many may not see. I really believe that art has the power to inspire and immortalise ideas.”
