The Art of Fefe Talavera

Perhaps it’s their glowing, slit-like yes, or maybe it’s the intricate geometric designs scrawled on their flesh, but Fefe Talavera’s monster characters hypnotize viewers with their inexplicable aura of mystery. Her murals and drawings display a breed of supernatural beasts as if they were ancient documents on cave walls. Ugly yet cute, sinister yet endearing, the creatures—with their sharp teeth and engorged genitalia—seem to narrate an allegory of the darker impulses that haunt humankind. Fefe fills her two-dimensional characters with detailed line work, seamlessly merging figuration and abstraction. Take a look at more of her ritualistic renderings below. – Nastia Voynovskaya
