Paint Plot Artist Feature: DIANA KARAKUSHYAN
Posted by Rebecca Keogh on
We would like to welcome Diana to our Paint Plot community of artists.
Here at Paint Plot, we either commission artists to create unique designs or we purchase their existing artwork to turn into craft kits. We’re proud that when you support us, you’re also supporting them.
Born in Russia and currently studying in the UK, Diana describes her designs, which include Zodiac Sky and Enchanted Flower as chaotic and intuitive. This lovely young lady is inspired by her parents and her wish would be for the whole World to live in peace and harmony.
- Who is the delightful Diana?
I was born in Russia, but then I moved to Canada and spent 5 years there. I studied and graduated in Business Marketing. It wasn’t for me, so I moved to the UK to further my study.
I’m currently studying 3D Games Art and Design at the university of Hertfordshire. I want to be an environment artist and create various game worlds and assets for it. The course is really challenging, but it’s a lot of fun!
- Can you describe your creative style?
My creative style is still improving and changing, so I can’t tell exactly what it is going to lead to but ideally, I’d like to master a concept art style. My creative process is usually quite chaotic and intuitive just like my personality. I observe nature to get inspiration for my drawings.
- Who is your biggest influence as an artist?
There are many incredible artists. The three that stand out for me are Bob Ross, Ismail Inceoglu and my favourite Andreas Rocha.
Andreas is an amazing digital artist. The way he uses colour and light is astounding.
- Who is your biggest influence in life?
My biggest influence in life is quite simple but incredibly important – my parents. They always support me and always inspire me to try new things.
- Do you have any hobbies?
I have quite a lot of hobbies, so I never have time for an active social life (I guess I’m a nerd). I love reading, playing games, drawing, rock climbing, snowboarding, biking and playing tennis.
- What’s your favourite food?
Chocolate. I am addicted to chocolate!
- Do you have any pets?
Yes, I have two fluffy, chubby, sometimes arrogant but still very cute cats.
- Do you have any advice for our Paint Plot community painting your designs?
Experiment and just have fun!
- If you could have a super-power for one day, what would it be?
I’d love to be someone with an ability to cure people from deadly diseases, it would be great to help people who have already abandoned hope and make them happy once more. Or Doctor Strange, cos magic is cool!
- If you could change anything in the world, what would it be and why?
I’d try to change people’s attitude towards each other, maybe there would be less hatred and discrimination.
- If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?
My dream is to visit New Zealand, so I’d go there first for sure. I want to see all the places where The Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed (I’m a big fan, and a definite nerd).
We feel very fortunate to have built relationships with all of our talented and wonderful artists, who we either purchase rights to reproduce artwork from, or we commission them to create something unique. When you purchase a Paint Plot exclusive design, you know that you are supporting them.
