Hi! I’m Varvara Nedilska, a Ukrainian Canadian multidisciplinary artist and a 2020 graduate of the OCADU illustration program.
My practice focuses mainly around narrative illustration, although recently I have been branching out more into printmaking and other media. I always work in analogue media (most often inks and watercolours) and some of my biggest inspirations are medieval and surrealist art, folk/“outsider” art and the natural world.
Many of the works featured here (Sleepover, Carpet Cowboys, Orchid Collection, Queen of the Night and Star Walk) are from my undergraduate thesis, which explored ways in which people cope with the effects of life in a fictionalized futuristic environment oversaturated with technology and their desire to return to ancient ways of life.
Feel free to contact me with any inquiries!
