Safira Anabel

Bristol-based Indonesian illustrator and graphic designer.
I like to combine shapes, colours, and texts to visualize narratives and invite the viewers to take a second, even a third look, to understand the meaning and emotions behind the image.
I draw inspiration from myths, poems, and daily life.
