visual artist deni dimochka’s illustrations mix pop culture with afrofuturism and fantasy

June 14, 2017

Digital artist Deni Dimochka’s illustrations are both unusual and playful mixes of fantasy and Afrofuturism. Drawing inspiration from icon black figures like Grace Jones (below) and nerd culture, Deni conceptualizes diverse characters that bend gender norms, defy odds, and storytelling norms. I can’t get enough of Deni’s warm us of color and her moody, almost underwater-esque palettes. See some of our favorites, below, and follow Deni on Tumblr and Instagram.
