Audrey Kawasaki Illustrations for Hint Mint

“Sophia” Hint Mint by Audrey Kawasaki

“Lilian” Hint Mint by Audrey Kawasaki

Audrey Kawasaki is one of my favourite artists because she has such an unique style and I love all the feminine details she gives to her paintings. These illustrations she made for Hint Mint. Some other artists they’ve worked with are: Lola, James Jean, Gary Baseman and Glenn Barr.

Short info:

The themes in Audrey Kawasaki’s work are contradictions within themselves. Her work is both innocent and erotic. Each subject is attractive yet disturbing. Audrey’s precise technical style is at once influenced by both manga comics and Art Nouveau. Her sharp graphic imagery is combined with the natural grain of the wood panels she paints on, bringing an unexpected warmth to enigmatic subject matter.
The figures she paints are seductive and contain an air of melancholy. They exist in their own sensually esoteric realm, yet at the same time present a sense of accessibility that draws the observer to them. These mysterious young women captivate with the direct stare of their bedroom eyes.

    I love Audrey Kawasaki but hadn’t come across the illustrations on this packaging. A lot of her work reminds me of the character Chihiro in Spirited Away. Thought you might appreciate this Marjolein:

    I love #27 but it’s very frustrating to me to not know who craeetd it. I really want to see more of their work and I’m sure they have a web site somewhere. You have to at least know where you found the image and you should give as much information as possible to try and promote the art you like. Artists work hard to create their work and to not give them credit is terrible.
