Coffee, coffee, coffee! Breasts. Heart. Bone. Not informative enough? Vespertina Vi is a creative weirdo- ODDITY, based out of Hollywood, California. Her work is fueled by coffee (>.>) -a wee bit of gin- and a fierce imagination. Sometimes even fierce coffee, but mostly imagination and regular strength coffee. Underlying concepts and potent symbolism can often be found within her creations, as she believes that life possesses far more value when it has true meaning, rather than mere beauty. Vespertina frequently engages in multiple art forms, including but not limited to; Jewelry artistry, oil and acrylic painting, graphite and charcoal drawing, sewing and clothing design, leather work, woodwork, photography, and photographic modeling. As such, Vespertina Vi is also the name under which her painting, photography and other artwork can be found. All photographs by Vespertina. Featured videos by their respective artists to set a mood.
"Beauty is unbearable, drives us to despair, offering us for a minute the glimpse of an eternity that we should like to stretch out over the whole of time." -Albert Camus Remember that feeling when you fall in love so hard that you feel as if your heart may burst right in your chest? You want to scream, you want to cry, dance and crumple? Now remember the moment when you discovered that said feeling was not reciprocated? You felt as if all the happiness in the world had gone, as if you'd never stand, never breathe, never smile again. You'd do anything to make that anguish cease. As morbid as it may seem, it is that very anguish that serves as my most powerful motivation, and since the day I first truly experienced this emotion, my work has only improved and strengthened..

I'm brand spankin' new to this community but from what I have seen, there is some incredible talent encapsulated in this little corner of the inter-webs and it is incredible inspiring and motivating as a fellow artist. Much of my inspiration is derived from perusing various art related websites and this place is simply a hotbed of inspiration waiting to happen! Also, after some poking around I discovered a jewelry artist whose work I have worn for an editorial photoshoot. Imagine that!
