Shaping the Art of Shapes with Maria Frenzy
Words by Sofia Elena Arzola
Published Nov. 2, 2018
As a child, she loved to draw and paint. During her school years, she carried sketchbooks around and filled them up like it was nothing. Then, when she was 14 years of age, Maria Frenzy bought her first digital drawing tablet. And with that, a whole new world of possibilities and creativity opened up.
Flash forward to today. After years of practice and hard work, following tutorials and looking to renowned digital artists, Frenzy is now a skilled illustrator, graphic designer, and photographer residing in the city of Kiev, Ukraine, but her “main field stays illustration,” as Frenzy exclaimed.
However, she expanded her portfolio to include more than one type of art. “I started doing graphic design a couple months ago just for the reason of me really loving beautiful images and expressing thoughts through them.
“Speaking about photography, it’s just a part of my social media, where I want to be closer to people who interact with me and to share some pieces of my life with them.”
Evidently, the artist has been drawn to multiple areas of work. “I’d say I just like creativity in all its interpretations,” she said.
In her work, she often uses curved, round shapes with many slight color contrasts. If you check out Frenzy’s Instagram, you’ll find a load of beautiful illustrations, a bit of photography, and a variety of shapes.
In her diverse creation of artwork, Frenzy maintains the wonder she’s had since her childhood, and continues to find ways to open up new creative worlds all the time. “Sharing your creativity and communicating with other artists will help you to evolve and even to do art for living with time.”
