This Illustrator Makes Fangirling Fun Again
Her vibes brighten up NYC.
Entertainment 21 May 2019

Agniya Tolstokulakova is a freelance illustrator in New York City who brings a bright palette to an otherwise grey, concrete city. She is part of a forthcoming exhibition at Usagi Gallery opening May 23 in Brooklyn.

What she really does is make being a fangirl fun again – her visual style is marked with bold colors, a cartoonish flair and playful patterns.

Our favorite piece is her portrait of David Bowie.

“I admire him not only as a musician, but also as an activist who blurred gender roles, helped a lot of people open up and challenged their traditional way of thinking,” she said.

“Bowie’s music contained moving and transformative messages. As a chameleon he was able to parlay his natural theatrical to create characters like aliens, geniuses and Goblin Kings. He was a brilliant storyteller.”
