The main advantage of illustration is that it can show things, things that come deep from our imagination. Natalia's illustrations are created usually by using thick black lines for contours and vibrant colours - these are the principal characteristics of her works. She has the eye for illustration, satire, unrealism, absurd and simplification. An avid traveller, Natalia captures the interesting qualities and elements from her sojourns abroad, which can be later transferred into her works. Perhaps due to a fear of darkness and boredom, uses a lot of flashy colours.

Natalia Uryniuk is illustrator and graphic designer based in Gdansk, Poland. She graduates next year at University of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Graphic Design, Masters Degree.
