About the Artwork:
“Every time someone asks me about the meaning or the idea behind my artworks, my mind starts blowing. I find it very hard explain where the ideas come from and I’m not sure I know that in the first place. I love to hear what people see in every one of them. I love to listen to all the different, beautiful interpretations every person has. I’m always amazed by that and I think it’s one of the most important reason I feel so good making art.” – Sara Baun
About the Artist:
I’m Sara, a dark artist/illustrator. I live somewhere in the foggy north Italy.
I’ve done a lot of different things in my life, I used to paint and draw sometimes, in a discontinuous way. I started and dropped an illustration school, switched from one job to another until I decided to spend few weeks in an animal rescue center. A few weeks became a couple of years after I fell in love with every animal I met there and I started drawing little animals here and there, in my free time.
After this I started at a stone-restoration school, that kept me busy for three years. I worked in a bunch of building sites as a restorer while my hands kept going back to pencils and paper.
I didn’t realize what was happening until I found myself quitting the restorer job I had, and started drawing all day long, struggling and working to make a living from it.
Suddenly, I felt and decided that I wanted to take this path and still I’m here, a year after that decision. Happier than ever I’d say.
Animals are protagonists in my artworks, I’m so fascinated by them, all of them. I still don’t know when the dark atmosphere started to come out (especially since I wanted to draw for children at the beginning) but I was always intrigued by melancholy, sadness, nostalgia and the list goes on, so I guess I’m just following what I’m into.
I’m always super curious about what’s next in this journey. It seems like it’ll be always full of changes.
