A Filipino/Italian illustrator living in Berlin.

I dabbled forever in art and many of its malformed afterbirths before finally taking a shot in editorial illustration,
which I couldn't be more happy with.

My style is a bastard of 1930 goldenage surrealism and 2019 vector art dilettantism. I like bright colors telling me terrible things.
Favorite subjects to draw center timeless topics such as power, money, science, death, love and fried chicken.

Outside of work you usually find me developing vegan recipes or losing at overcomplicated board games.

Waste no time...drop a line!

Hopping on the #ArtTrain
Thank you @Murugiah for the nomination!



We can't get enough of Goa-based illustrator Osheen Siva's vibrant work, full of feminine power, sexuality and Indian mythology


That feeling when you're doing something in an extremly inefficient and stupid way, but you're already halfway through so you don't even bother to think about a better approach?

Totally unfamliar with that sensation.
