Gabriella Eva Nagy & Modern Illustrations
Each year, there are thousands of children’s illustrated books printed all over the globe. What makes Gabriella Eva Nagy’s body of works stand out is her unique artistic style when it comes to illustrations. As someone who has majored in computer animation and multimedia, Nagy has come up with her own brand of art. Most, if not all, of her illustrations, are characterized by shiny and vibrant colors. Because Gabriella Eva Nagy mostly writes about nature and animals, her works showcase landscapes. Her books are filled with sceneries such as gardens, streams, forests, meadows, mountains, rivers, and the cold, beautiful artic (Moonlight Dance, Starlight Lullaby, and Winter Dreams). It follows that most of Gabriella Eva Nagy’s characters are animals such as butterflies, insects, marine life, penguins, and a wide array of flora and fauna. However, unlike most children’s books, where images and illustrations are rendered in 2D flat colors, Gabriella introduces us to her rich palette of shiny, shimmering, vibrant colors. The layout as well as the compositions are uniquely her own and do not settle for the traditional types of children’s book images.
Nagy captures nature’s beauty and various moods, atmospheres, and seasons using modern tools and style.
