Recently, we came across the amazing art of Italian artist Valentina Brostean. At first glance, her work has a surreal, yet grotesque quality that conveys curiosity and playfulness. However, the pieces she creates offer a deeper meaning and resonate with attitudes about life, death, and personal journeys. Its through these experiences, Valentina has been able to create both digital and traditional paintings that hauntingly resonate with the viewer. We see nothing but big things for Valentina in the future. Be sure to check out more of her work after the jump.
