Draw Me Like One Of Your French Girls, Chiara Bautista!

Xavier in Tattoo Ideas

She's been around making these "emotive" art, way back during Myspace days where she was only known as Milk.

Until now, no one really knows her. Chiara is known to be quite elusive. Aside from the fact that she's supposed to be a petite, Mexican woman, nothing else is known about her.

Chiara's works are well-loved and appreciated by many whose curiosities feed on her works. It's like a series of storybook surrealism.

Basically, Chiara's art is like being in a dream. It has such imageries that only exist within the branches of a talented and imaginative artist's beautiful mind.

Her works, as she describes, are representations of the feelings she can't describe. They're all bursting with emotion. It's the type of art where only the artist knows whatever story is behind it. They may be often indecipherable, but it's with the way her fans interpret them that burrows into their hearts, finding a commonplace.

One of her most prominent characters is a wolf bathed in galaxies and its companion, a pale, naked girl in a bunny mask. It's supposed to be an adaptation of her and her real life lover, James.

These two are featured in a series of illustrations and short comics under a subtle, romantic theme. Many of Chiara's fans are just as enchanted with those two as they are to Chiara.

One may notice that Chiara's works feature a lot of song lyrics. It might be a personification of a song, or an interpretation of a line through a drawing.

She also has a penchant for mixed medias, as seen in many of her sketches. She uses Photoshop to add patches of colours to her sketches.

When she goes full-on digital mode, it makes you want to demand an entire graphic novel from her.

As somewhat of an artist, it's one of my aims to make waves into the deepest parts of people and drag out feelings they didn't know existed. Just like Chiara Bautista's art does.
