Enchanting illustrations of woodland animals and leafy habitats find their homes on small wood slices. Greek artist Melpomeni Chatzipanagiotou combines her love of depicting nature with organic materials in an ongoing series of drawings and paintings on wood. These small, tactile pieces depict a range of dreamy scenes surrounded by a border of real wood.

Chatzipanagiotou renders his subjects using a limited color palette of black and white, blue, and some metals. As a result, she is able to create a striking contrast of light and dark that stands out from the wood. While some of these pieces feature paintings that were done directly on the board, others include drawings on paper that were mounted on the base. “A main theme in my the work is the natural habitat and its living inhabitants, with an otherworldly twist,” Chatzipanagiotou tells My Modern Met. “my work and interest is very vast but I often explore themes who are connected to our Earth and the Cosmic Universe.”

These mesmerizing works of art seem to blend reality and imagination, resulting in captivating combinations of nature, space and more. “With a deep need to try to communicate my thoughts, feelings and stories through the making of dense and detailed art,” continues Chatzipanagiotou. “Each piece of art I create is uniquely hand drawn with a mix of materials, pens, inks, gouache, acrylic paint and I enjoy working on both paper and wood.

You can purchase artwork available through Chatzipanagiotou’s Etsy store and pre-order her new coloring book (coming February 2023) on Amazon. Keep up to date with his latest projects by following the artist on Instagram.
