The drawings of Kazakhstani Saule Beken, demonstrating the special atmosphere of autumn days, aroused admiration among Instagram users. Tengri Lifestyle contacted the artist to learn more about her work.

Saule Beken shares his creativity on Instagram. More recently, the girl painted several illustrations on the theme of autumn, and national elements can also be found in her paintings.

“I love early autumn with golden foliage and warm sun. For me, autumn means leisurely walks in autumn parks, a riot of colors and rustling leaves underfoot, warm coffee in my hands,” the description for the painting says.

In her drawings, the artist uses the image of a Kazakh girl who finds pleasure in small things. So, for example, her heroine drinks warming tea, wrapped in a blanket (korpe).

Netizens happily meet each new work of the artist, accompanying with complimentary comments:

“So warm”, “Such a cutie”, “Is this beautiful girl in the picture you?”, Social network users write under Saule’s posts.

Saule told Tengri Lifestyle why she decided to dedicate several of her works to this season at once.

“In my illustrations about autumn, I wanted to show that there are a lot of reasons to fall in love with autumn. For example, for long walks in the parks, a variety of colors, hot coffee… Autumn can be cozy and kind,” says Saule.

Saula is 27 years old, she was born and raised in Shymkent. Now the girl lives in Prague and is studying for a master’s degree in landscape design.

“My grandfather instilled a love for creativity in early childhood. We often drew together. When I was 13 years old, my mother took me to a children’s art school, and I started studying there. Drawing gives me the opportunity to look at the world with a special look and live my days in creativity,” she says.

According to her, now she is a freelancer and combines her studies with work on orders.

“In my illustrations, I reflect what I see and feel. I especially like to draw in ethnic style. I try to show the harmony of modern visual culture and tradition in my work,” the girl adds.

Earlier it became known that the Serbian artist Sanja Jankovic, using a special technique, portrayed the characters of the popular series “Game of Thrones”, scenes from the movie “Interstellar” and the famous painting by Leonardo da Vinci “Mona Lisa”. You can read more about this at the link.
