I’m a big lover of art history and art. Since I’ve been buying and selling on Fiverr, some really good artists have come to my attention. My favorite, by far, is most definitely @lenasemenkova, though. My home church has been getting a lot of our graphics from her, and they’re all so good (Pastor absolutely adores her work)! In her last order, though, she definitely outdid herself:
Lena’s style is definitely bright and artsy, and I can always see the care she puts into my orders. My favorite things hands down, though, is that the people she puts in my art are black. Now, I know what you might be thinking— Bad Graphter, Racist Graphter. But hear me out: Every designer I’ve worked with before her has put white people in all the graphics, and that’d be fine if we weren’t a predominantly black church. The fact that she does this shows her awareness and attention to detail, two qualities a lot of the designers here on Fiverr could learn from.
She really helped us step up our graphic game and showed me how fun church graphics could be. And she brought to life art outside of a modernist context for me. Y’all should really check her out if you ever get the chance.
Anyway, who’s your favorite artist and why? How’d you find them? What about their art speaks to you?
