Tasha Levytska deserves more hype. Her artwork (spanning from illustration to ceramics and even papier mache), has an undeniable charm to it that can attract both adults and children. Based in Kyiv, Ukraine, Levytska’s work touches upon many fields, including web, editorial, advertising, and publishing. “Most of the time I work in digital because it’s fast,” she explained in an interview with Ballpitmag. “But I like to try different mediums even though this leads to piles of wasted paper.”
Recent works include a ceramic plate shaped like a head and a quirky flower vase. Humor, as it turns out, is the driving force of Levytska’s work. “I like to make a good laugh and usually trying to find something funny in the outer world and bring it to my illustrations,” reads her bio.
Indeed, her work, in its mere quirkiness, provides a comical relief in a sea of bland Instagram content. But coming up with ideas takes some time and research. “Usually, I start by searching for the idea,” relayed Levytska, explaining her creative process. “It’s very painful to find more and more new ideas,” she admits, “so I’m trying to help myself and I have a kinda routine for that.”
Her research routine includes reading, mapping out her ideas and then thinking them over. “And then I switch myself to some monotonic work where I don’t need to think – washing dishes, taking a shower, walking outside,” she explains. “And after 10 minutes my brain gives me a bunch of ideas for the project.”
