    Inventive artist Mila Karavai, presents a collection of illustrative works using unconventional surfaces such as paint, aluminum and papier-mache, that explore the transformation of an idea into a physical form. This unique and expressive work brings to life the evolution of chaotic and abstract shapes into recognizable, content-addressable characters.
