Perfected imperfection

At The Ode To we are always curious to learn more about creativity and artistry, so we asked the Swedish multi talent Cina Rosén to tell us a little bit about her life, her art and her sources of inspiration.

What do you call the series of artworks that you have created for The Ode To?

Busy florals. My intention with these artworks has been to move away from perfection, and simply make the viewer happy with colours and shapes.

What inspires you?

– I'm mainly inspired by nature, but there are also a few Instagram accounts that inspire me with quick, powerful art.

What other artists do you admire?

– I really admire Jenny Walton. She's a fashion illustrator and has an amazing drawing style – it’s imperfect but so impactful and colourful.

Can you tell us about your background and how you came to be an artist?

– I work as a full-time fashion designer, but I need an outlet where I can create whatever I feel like. I’ve studied fashion illustration, and that’s where my love for illustration started.

How would you describe your art and aesthetics in three words?

– Messy, colourful, imperfect.

What we love about Cina Rosèn:

There’s an energy, optimism, and playfulness in the art of Cina Rosén that we simply can’t resist, reminding us about the importance of imperfection.
