The Greener Pastures

Hi there! I am Virginia Diakaki, the artist behind The Greener Pastures. I am also Sophia’s mom, a stage designer, a playwright and the owner of a crazy dog named Satsi. I love life’s irony, black humor, strange people and the good old times.All of my work reflects the state of mind I am when I make it and I feel very connected with each illustration. Artistically my work is highly inspired by Victorian imagery, vitriolic humor, Art Nouveau as well as antique Japanese illustrations, tarot cards and anything quirky that draws my attention. I use symbols and animals to interpret human nature, together with thoughts transformed into words. All of these conspire in order to depict human and familiar situations through a bitter-sweet filter balancing between childhood innocence and a dark fairy tale. My goal is to provoke, puzzle but also amuse the viewers of my work. Thank you for stoping by, Virginia. more info and wholesale : http://www.virginiadiakaki.com/ The Greener Pastures joined Society6 on September 12, 2014
