Chicago-based graphic designer and illustrator Irina Kruglova is renowned for her striking, colourful illustrations that focus on minimalism and precision, inspired by modern culture, nature and simple objects that offer appealing patterns and textures.
After focusing on graphic design for over a decade, she decided to pursue the path of illustration, creating richly coloured vector artworks that place a huge emphasis on simple shapes and lines. Speaking of her inspirations, she said: “I love to peer at things around me. Some may think I’m a weirdo or a creep when I can’t take my eyes off a person or object. But in fact I’m not, it’s just the way I observe the world around me.”
