A melancholy beauty. That’s how I would describe the work of Teagan White. In a whimsical mix of flora and fauna, she overlaps beautiful organic shapes with personal intricacy that provokes a pensive ponder out of the most mature of children, and the most childlike of adults. Perhaps it’s her use of muted colors or perhaps it’s the subtle contrast of life and death that causes each piece to resonate so violently true with personal character. Either way it’s delightfully provoking. But without drifting too far into the metaphysical, her works remain whimsical and innocent and fun! Now, there are just a few examples of her work here but her talents don’t stop with ink and gauche. Teagan boasts some big clientele for both her illustrative work and immaculate typography. And apart from all that you’ll find at the links below, I’d keep my eyes out for a new piece inspired by the leafy blizzard of a Minnesota fall. For a master of fauna and flora like she is, and the kind of inspiration the changing seasons provide, I’m willing to bet she cranks out something even more awe-inspiring than normal. It’s a good time of year right now so enjoy it! If not physically, then vicariously through the incredible artwork of Teagan White.
