Elliana Esquivel’s illustrations dig deep into each of us

Illustrator Elliana Esquivel started drawing as a child and now her art has become surprisingly unique and universal.

Fear, loneliness, uncertainty, love are feelings that are difficult to explain in words and even more difficult to translate into images. The young illustrator Elliana Esquivel always succeeds in this impossible task, showing us the true face of our emotions. 

Elliana is originally from North Carolina and started drawing when she was very young, this passion has never abandoned her and today her illustrations that she sells on her online shop on Etsy are literally stolen. 

The strength of her work is universality. Elliana represents those states of mind that we have all experienced at least once in our lives and she does so without too much pretension, with a disarming simplicity that leaves us almost perplexed. 

The style of her illustrations seems almost incomplete, as if every time a color, background or an element were missing, but it is precisely this choice that makes the message of her works comprehensible to all. Because some sensations are impossible to translate into words or images.
