"To me, ornamental design means richness. Richness in all its terms of meaning: variety, diversity, multiplicity, and complexity. Ornamental design is more often than not inspired by Nature and depicts its different structures. Those abstracted elements are often combined with patterns."
Born in Germany, Maren Esdar studied History of Arts and Fashion Design and Illustration. She has been doing illustrations for Vogue Germany, currently based in Hamburg. She considers art to be a way of communication, involving both the conscious and unconscious mind. She believes that it also helps to express moods and atmospheres, targeting the viewer’s emotional system directly, before being analysed by reason.
