"I strive to make beautiful and interesting artwork. Art is always better when there is an actual idea behind it and it is not just something made to be pretty."
Esra Røise is a Norwegian freelance illustrator who recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree in visual communication from the Academy of Arts in Oslo. She specialises in refreshing and colourful fashion illustration and has a long list of internationally known clients in her portfolio. Mostly inspired by music, Røise uses a combination of watercolour and pencil to depict hyper-realistic figures, capturing the playfulness and romanticism of youth, and making a statement about living free and in the moment.
