Bad Romance blends lyrical illustrations with fairytale wonders to create a new world of highly imaginative artwork. In addition to the redesigned wallpaper art and wall installation, Brightside has created a matching oracle card and coloring book set based on the Bad Romance works of art.
The artist’s layered compositions incorporate artistic application of design and wallpaper, reinventing pretty things that are also toxic. Mushrooms, angel’s trumpets, butterflies and skulls combine with other beautiful but “eco-friendly” flora and fauna to present a vibrant display in vivid colors and metallics.
” Bad Romance is a portal to the world of imagination,” says Brightside. “Each pretty toxic thing is a beautiful microcosm unto itself, rich in symbolism. The illustrations, mural and oracle cards are meant to inspire. They encourage others to look beyond the scary and find the beauty in the variety of life.
Each piece in Brightside’s collection is a one-of-a-kind work of art printed on metallic wallpapers. Golds, silvers and coppers are covered in contemporary pinks and turquoises, highlighting each illustration through blocked compositions.
“You can feel the magic behind Katie’s work,” says K. Ryan Henisey, the artist and entrepreneur behind Artlounge Collective. “She has created a delicate and unique world that invites you to explore all its depths. Each illustration touches on the next, creating windows into a fully developed view of the beautiful and the dangerous.
