Femininity seen from the perspective of Alva Skog

Giants, masculine, almost deformed, are the women illustrated by Alva Skog who distance themselves from the preconceptions of femininity. 

Alva was born in Stockholm where, in addition to having developed since childhood a strong propensity and passion for art and drawing, she followed a two-year course in art. Then, at Central Saint Martins University, she began her studies in Graphic Design, discovering dozens and dozens of points in common between this field and illustration. 

Over time, drawing has become a way to express herself, to represent the world around her and her style has evolved to become that of today. 

The main characteristic of her illustrations are the subjects, women of monumental dimensions who represent femininity, the real and imperfect one, far removed from the glossy one of magazines and influencers. Her figures are colorful, with huge arms and heads smaller than the body and, above all, taken from an unusual point of view. Alva plays with perspective, twisting the image, making the big elements seem small and vice versa.

Alva Skog gives shape to a new world because it is true, discover it in our gallery, on her site and on her Instagram profile.
