Profile

Darya Shnykina is an artist and illustrator from Moscow, Russia. With her restrained and soothing color palette, she captures calm, introspective moments in her artwork. Using a sketchy, wavering line, she’s able to humanize and personify emotions. Although created using digital techniques, Darya’s artwork retains the charm of traditional material and textures. ​ After entering the Moscow State University of Printing and studying Graphics and Illustration, Darya began her professional career. In 2017 she won the Book Illustration Competition run by the Folio Society and the House of Illustration (London, UK), in 2018 was shortlisted in the Communication Arts Annual (USA) and won the Merit Award in 3X3 Illustration Annual in 2019. Her work was selected by Creative Boom in 25 of the best illustration projects in 2020. Darya has been published in a number of books and publications, as well as exhibited in various galleries and fairs. She also had an opportunity to start her own illustration short course at Azbooka Morsa and is regularly invited to give workshops & lectures.
