Beautiful work Christina, Your colour palette is fresh and I can feel the movement in the scene. Made me think of Japan , so I wrote you a haiku!
A red bird rises
Flowering lotus sings
The call to a new life
Amazing work, so vibrant and fresh. Great detail and color.I really love this piece.
Beautiful! The colors are what caught my attention, and then all the tiny details kept me staring for a good few minutes. Really lovely piece.
I adore your art, keep going!
So glad I stumbled upon this and in the process discovered your work. So gorgeous!
I can’t recall another time I’ve wanted to use the words “brutal” and “lovely” to describe the same thing. I’m astounded–how wonderful.
Your website is top-notch. I’ve been struggling to verbalize how much I dig your stuff, and just as I’m about to give up and comment, “Neat!” I find your photo-filled blog. Lawd, have mercy! You’re a Midwest maven.
wow that’s art! simple as this. i would really enjoy to have one of these. just awesome!
beautiful work, completely jealous at your talent
hello christinART. oops. Mrozik!
Hi Christina! This is so wonderful – your talent is unreal! Very jealous and in love with this piece.
the level of detail in combination with the stark contrast in use of colour and the content of the image itself is astounding! It reminds me very much of a Japanese woodblock print, but on acid. Lovely!
The level of detail in this piece is truly amazing. The colors are so serene and beautiful. The depth and color scheme are my favorite things.
Beautiful work! I’d love to have this print!
Greetings from Sweden
Beautiful and a truly inspiring art piece. Awesome line work that is even more breath taking colored.
The thumbnail of this I saw on facebook did not do it justice. I literally gasped. This is gorgeous.
Excellent work, love it!
Incredible! Would love to give this a prominent place in my home.
Pretty, puffy, pink birds feed their young.. Bent bound beaks and a twisty tongue! I dig!
Really love your art. The quality, the style and the composition of each is so unique. You are a very inspiring human being.
I appreciate this introduction to your work by Jeff Hamada. Stunning.
Christina! You are so cool and your pink bird is so rockin!! Please let me frame her nicely and hang her on our wall!
Absolutely stunning. I especially love the tiny bird between the entwined beaks.
I see lots of super cool oriental reference and I LOVE IT! the use of a gradient of colour in the background giving the birds 2 different identities is the first thing i saw. very much like a religious painting distinguishing good and evil. keep it coming
Love your work and would love to have this hanging on my walls.
The avian symmetry & beachy pastel colors really set the picture off for me. I could go off about the attention to detail among other artistic qualities but would be nothing unlike any other art critic. It’s quality, and I would be honored to be able to put it in my dorm:)
What a beautiful piece of art. Strange and intriguing.
I am in awe. This is truly an amazing, inspiring piece of work. It’s strange in the best way. I can’t quit looking at it, it would look so perfect on my seafoam walls. Chrstina Mrozik – you’re great
Incredibly detailed and intriguing to observe. The tension between the connected birds is not immediately recognizable but entirely captivating once realized. I am excited to have stumbled upon your artwork. Stunning.
Gorgeous – I especially love the variation and subtleties of the reds and pinks for the birds.
I like it a lot! Will go search for other work by you now….
A truly beautiful illustration of the ornithological variety.
Absolutely intriguing. I could stare at this forever.
This is incredible!!!!!!!
Love your work Christina! been following you for a few years now. so awesome to see your work on boom!
I really love the birds and the intricate details…this would make an amazing valentines day gift keep up the incredible work!!
Big fan of Christina’s work. Incredible and inspiring
I AM CHRIS’S NORTHVIEW HIGH SCHOOL ART TEACHER AND FROM THE FIRST CLASS SHE TOOK TO THE LAST I KNEW SHE WAS DESTINED TO BE A GREAT ARTIST !!! AND FOLKS HANG ON TO YOUR HATS CAUSE HAVE NOT SEEN ANYTHING
YET THE BEST WILL COME OVER AND OVER AGAIN !!!
Chris is as beautiful a person as the artwork she creates. From the moment she puts pen to paper the magic begins to flow. Her talent is sheerly God given. Every piece, every time gives a feeling of amazement and awe. Congratulations Chris.
Christina has been an inspiration to me as an artist, and her work is always beautiful and unique!
Ah, I love Christina’s work! I love how how it rides the line between uncanny and beautiful. I can’t help but feel each of her paintings is a window to the secret and hidden things that lurk in protean, liminal spaces of ordinary life.
What a beautiful print.
beautifully detailed art, beautiful color palette.. nature lover, and she captures these nature themed drawings flawlessly.
this is beautiful!
Christina Mrozik is so talented. The print is so pretty.
love the style!
HELLO MS MROZIK. YOU HAVE SUCH AN AWESOME TALENT. THIS PICTURE REALLY SPEAKS TO ME. IT IS SOOOO MUCH TO MY LIKING. IT WOULD GO PERFECT HANGING OVER MY COLLECTION OF DRAGONS AND FAIRIES.
Such amazing print. All the details the mix of colors makes it unique and unforgettable, I really wanna have it.
I had never heard of this artist before, to be honest, but when I saw the first image on this website’s home page, my eyes widened and my jaw literally dropped.
This a gorgeous and carefully detailed print.
This is a beautiful print! I also love the illustrations on the website. I’d love to own a piece of your work!
Okay, how to do this… I haven’t fallen in love at first sight with an artist that much in a little while now. I’ve just spent an hour going through your website and facebook, your blog… and what you do is just truly amazing. This look you have on nature and how you represent it really touched me and I just can’t get my eyes off this particular piece !
Anyway, this is beautiful, and if I don’t win this… well, I’ll have to buy a print because there’s no way this art doesn’t become a part of my life !
Amazing work… thank you !
This work is very amazing. It’s so feminine and pretty, but at the same time very psychedelic and very delicate. Amazing amazing work! Very inspirational. I would love to see your other work. The other work of yours I’ve seen on your website is also very beautiful. It is very pleasing to see work like this. keep it up :]
Artists need artists.
It is precisely such works of art that inspire you to stop hatever you were doing and take a moment off to reflect.
This is the material that dreams are made of.
Christina, I have always admired your art. I remember sitting next to you in math class and having you draw either on my homework, or on my arm! I love your work, and will miss those days we had in high school together! I love your work and am so happy that you do what you love for a living! Congratulations on all your success! I love you and miss you!
My favorite little elegances are the tiny hidden birds. Just exquisite. I would love to wake up to this image everyday!
Muah ! Big hug to you for hearing out your heart to create something so beautiful. Simply unmatched by your true brilliance, which I may never know.
Your work is beautiful. Traditional looking, yet also a million miles from it. Colourful visually, yet dark in context. The dream like and mischievous surreal quality your work has contrasts greatly to the sheer beauty of it. I love the contradictions you’ve captured, as well as the majesty of the natural and imaginary world of your art.
This print would be a perfect gift for my partner. The relationship between these birds is beautiful yet complicated.
This is one of the loveliest works of art i’ve seen in a very long time. How envious I am of the intricacies found within the bird’s beaks, it’s breathtaking, truly inspiring. I could only imagine what it would be like to win this on valentines day. Here’s my best to whoever wins! x
stunning picture, very beautiful x
Chris this would look wonderful by “the swan” I got for my birthday last year! You do know your Aunt Molly will be 50 this year! Was an awesome birthday surprise to be picked to receive this.
Pick me please!
I’d be honored. Lovely!
i love bacon. and i want your print. please.
Your work has its own vocabulary
What a beautiful language to learn.
Gorgeous, count me in, thank-you.
Hi Christina, thanks for the opportunity. Happy Valentines!
I am sat here at home on a very gloomy Monday morning sending some work to a client using ‘We Transfer’ when this image appears and it lifted me out of the cold and gloom and into a different place altogether – I think only art, music and poetry can do that to you, which is I suppose what makes us human. Anyway as someone who packed away my paints when I had my children it has inspired me to unpack them and start my own creative journey again so if I don’t win this print you still helped me win back something else. Thank you.
Gorgeous! A fairy tale of a print
From one illustrator to another quite simply… ‘One of the best examples of traditional illustration I have seen in ages’, her style, has a hard edge and quite sinister but is softened by her painting technique and use of colour. Dare I say could be used to great success in advertising …. and well worth shouting about!
That is too beautiful! I’m for it!
this is amazing. they almost look like watercolored etchings, especially with that border. im always amazed at detailed stuff like this. good work.
This is incredible and I’d love to have it in my home.
Uau!!! Perfeito !! parabéns
Beautiful work! That is very generous of you to give a piece away. I would love to have this in my collection.
99% of the time I don’t bother clicking adverts, but this one on WeTransfer was worth it. Give-away or not, it’s great to know about Christina’s work
I’m happy to do a trade with her!
Omg it’s amazing! if is open internationally I’m in!
Wow, I don’t register for free stuff, but this I would love to hang on my wall. And it’s great to be made aware of Artist Christina Mrozik.
What an incredibly beautiful piece. I love the colours and the lines and the detail and all of it. It’s gruesomely stunning. I’d love to hang this as the centrepiece in my living room. I’m in love.
Wow, truly exceptional work!! Bizarre, rhythmic, and stunningly beautiful! ♥
I was just introduced to the beauty of Christina’s work via the blog “SheWalksSoftly” Stunning imagery, flow and style.
Oh my, this is amazing! We celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary on feb 14th, it would be so incredible to win ourselves this beautiful gift! It really is stunning.
Would love to have this print om my wall but thanks anyway for introducing this artist to me. Beautiful work. Everybody should check out the website mentioned above. Very detailed work, love it.
forget about hanging this on a wall: i’ll make this my heraldic coat of arms, and, singing spring-morning praises for its solemn virtues of maternity, habitat, and playful puzzlement, i’ll stand as humble human defender of dragon-flamingos and buzzing hummingsworths everywhere.
Christina’s work is unique in the essence of its connection with my imagination. Her pieces bring out the exquisite detail and beauty in nature and meld them together with the figment of pure imagination. This reminds me of what I’d imagine as a child. I want to call this print my own because it has a personal connection to my childhood dreams.
Oh my, that is a very powerful drawing, a little surreal, a little old Japanese a lot of unique. More than lovely, outstanding!
Oh I could just kiss all of your lovely faces. Thank you for all of your kind words and thoughtful interpretations!
What a delicate yet powerful piece of art. I am hoping to move house in the next couple of weeks and I would happily center the colour scheme and detail of the place around this print. You could be captivated for hours! Exquisite.
Oh I could just kiss all of your lovely faces. Thank you for all of your kind words and thoughtful interpretations. Im excited as you are to see who gets to take this print home!
I never meant not to write you back. I hope you are doing well, and I am super jealous of your upcoming trip to New Zealand! Let me know if you’re ever visiting LA.
Wow this is just amazing i can only imagine attempting something like this, well done !
Chris is a gifted and brilliant artist. In addition, she is someone who is genuine and kind. She’s just a beautiful person, inside & out, and is just talented!
Can I order this as wall paper as well? Love it!
Its a snow day here. So if you were here we would be drinkin green tea with cocoa and you would be blow drying paint on paper. Cheers to you!
Christina, thanks for turning the snowstorm into sunshine here in NYC! Best, Sophia
Super excited to see all of the various comments. It is a blessing to watch your imagination run, but to see that people world wide also recognize your unique talents, gives me great joy. Continued success to you my lovely daughter and adventurer. The world is lucky to have you to color its walls
Monet invented lily pads, and you invented your own creatures.
I’m a huge fan of you, both as a person and an artist. Thanks for the constant inspiration!
I’m in love… a truly inspiring piece of work
Love it Cristina…would love to be able to have this as my screen saver. Nice job
A fantastic colour palette and attention to detail. You can tell how much love and effort has gone into creating this piece! I’d definitely love a print
You just made my day, please make mine!
Truly awe inspiring. I haven’t painted for almost 20 years but I’m feeling inspired to start again, if my attempts reach even 10% of the beauty of yours I’d be happy!.
A delight to the tenses, sublime, luxurious, delicate, piece. DELICIOUS.
I love WeTransfer for opening my eyes to your work! This print is really, really, really beautiful.
Beautiful gradient. This is breathtaking, and also, apparently similiar to how i was concived.
Love birds for Valentines Day. Inseparable and entwined forever together. The vibrant colours of their lush full feather complement beautifully the yellow tones of the spring flowers. It’s a gorgeous print that to represent love this Valentine’s Day. Thanks for sharing xx
I like the curious bird in the beak.
To “beat” all the comments for a not English speaker is I would say is mission impossible:)
Just starred at your painting and forgot about winter, thick pale clouds hiding the sun and naked tree branches.
I cant wait the finish, i d like so much this print ^__^
This work sparked off a whole manner of inspirational works in my mind, the jabberwocky’s words, the imagination of alice in wonderland and the sheer bold creativity of the beatles! Remarkable work with an amazing cocktail of subtle touches combined with courageous strokes. Keep them coming!
Gods! I’ve never even heard of you before, just stumbled over this post while browsing another, but this is so beautiful! I love your work, especially the birds are fantastic.
I will be following your work from now on, so inspirational.
Absolutely stunning piece! I just moved to a new apt and these bare, sad walls would come to life w/this masterpiece! TY for the chance
Beautiful work! This would make a great gift for my girlfriend on Valentine’s.
Simply breathtaking artwork Birdlovers unite!
This to me gives all the promises of the beauty of Spring… baby birds and blossom, mother nature at it’s best! xx
“Upon this wondrous earth of ours are many lovely things.
In spring I marveled at the sights the kind your beauty brings.
Oh beautiful magnolia, you are by Heaven blessed.
Spring time has many wonders but you’re one of the best.”
I came across of this print from WeTransfer.com and was basically wowed with the power and the intricate brush lines and the balance of everything. Just really love love love this print and all the rests on the website. It would be my greatest pleasure if I could win this one as my first artwork from the artist. Thank you
I’m just blown away by this. There is nothing about this work that does not fascinate. The colors, the composition, the subject, the intricacy, the composition. My god what a surprise to just stumble across this. You’ve just made my day, thank you
Stunningly ornate! Congratulations on the beautiful work, Christina M.!
This print is absolutely stunning. It’s so fluid and the colors are incredibly vibrant. I’d be totally lucky to get this.
Christina your work takes my breath away. It is at once both subtle and dramatic. Pure poetry. Love the prints I already have. It would be great to add this one. I’m spreading the word. Everyone needs to see your art.
loved your work since i saw it at Madcap.
and I get lots of comps on my little birdie earrings!
Oh my goodness! Christina you are amazing! I love animals and birds and when I found you on instragram and facebook, I knew I had to follow you instantly and forever too! I also feel like I’m transported into a new secret utopia. A world and language we never heard and seen of, it’s truly magnificent. Thank you for creating such beautiful works for us to see. Xx
….if only i could wake up in the morning with a scene like that from my window. or hanging on the wall in my bedroom…
Stunning work. As a parent of a little boy I can truly relate to the beautiful relationship between these creatures.
Such beautiful line work! I love the sprit behind your pieces…so untique and timeless
Hello! You’re artwork is so inspiring and I’m excited to hear about this giveaway! Good luck to everyone and myself
oops. I’m not sure my last post sent or not. Anyway, thanks for being such an amazing artist and giving us the opportunity to own one of your pieces. Your art is very inspiring to me. Good luck to all the entries, including myself!
I’ve been following her work forever and each piece Christina makes really inspires me to push myself and my work, i would honestly be happy if i was to become half as good as her!! I really hope i win this print especially since this piece is one of my favourites, your amazing Cristina, keep making beautiful work
Christina, I loved reading about some of your sources of inspiration on your website—I was so glad to see that you mentioned Wunderkammers, because that was actually one of the first things that came to mind when I saw your gorgeous work! As an aspiring scholar of design history and material culture, I always love to see how present-day artists tap into ideas from the material past and draw new meaning from them.
Warmest wishes for all your endeavors!
I adore this. I hope to own it one day soon so that I can hang it over the teenage scrawl on my toile wallpaper – by my own immature hand – that states ‘Blink 182 kick ass so bad it rex’ and smother that massacre with something beautiful. Blink did kick ass, but this does more subtly.
your just insanely good, my bf is a illustrator and i would love to give him this piece for his birthday he is obsessed with the japanese culture so this would be truly a lovely thing to give!
Just happened across this site for the very first time today, and amongst all the new and inspiring posts was happy to see your art being selected for the giveaway. The winner will be selected Valentine’s Day which is fitting; your work is very romantic and clearly made with love. Many thanks for sharing your talent with us. I’m happy I now know of you and this wonderful website. Please keep up your gorgeous work!!
Amazing work, lots of hidden things to see. Would love to look at this every day!
Hi There, I love this print from Christina!! The colors are so beautiful. It will look fantastic on the walls of my new house. Really inspiring! Love, Anna
I saw it before …Some elements of it to be more precise. I can not remember when and where exactly. Oh no! I’ve just realised. It was ages ago. Darkness was around. And the silece was around. Nor light nor scent. Perfect emptiness. And suddenly darkness was lightend up little by litte. And silence was ended by some sounds clearly audible …Sounds of wings. Wings of strong bird. Birds to be honest. More than one I’m sure.
And the scent of blooming trees reached my nose. Magnolias in blossom … I’ve recognized it at once.
The warm morning sun was playing with me not allowing to see what exactly was in the scene in front of me. There was something more … I was more than sure. But only this all glorious promises of miracle was approachable for me.
And suddenly I entered your world Christina and the riddle was solved. I fund out what it was. I will remember this amazing beauty of Codependence forever. Thank you very much! Happy V-Day!
Absolutely beautiful expression of creativity
I just saw u’r drawing on wetransfer !! wow ,amazing feeling ,movement !!!!It touched me very deep ,Thank you.
I could steal a few minutes of each day looking at the intricacies of this beautiful print. It’s got the delicacy of a Flower Fairies print, but with the edge of Polly Morgan’s taxidermy and it is surreally organic – tongues like vines. I’m delighted to be in the running for the print. What a reward for work-related file transfers!
You’re artwork is truly amazing, I love your use of color!
Came here from We Transfer – couldn’t resist clicking – ace image
I’m transported to a world full of adventure and passion, with elegant outcomes and a wealth of rich texture. Echoes of lands tropical and plentiful. I’d be happy here. I could make it my home. Thank you for the visions Christina.
The birds remind me of dinosaurs. This would be so awesome as a tarot series. Keep going lady!
Dusty colours, exceptionally intertwined. Nature, of those that fly, of those that pair, of those that reproduce, of those that are not human. Thank-you for your close attention to a forgotten species.
This print: claws at my soul like a Klimt painting, hung above the bed of the girl who lived down the hallway that we were all in love with. Christina, this painting is a rapture.
Christina, I love bones, thunderstorms and dead bugs, too. Your work is awesome to explore and truly an inspiration. Rock on!
