Brunna Mancuso’s Bold Portraits Empower Women

Sao Paulo based illustrator, graphic designer, and visual artist, Brunna Mancuso describes herself as “a compulsive maker and creative person.” Her creativeness (and, perhaps, compulsiveness) comes through her brightly colored illustrations.

During the course of three months, Mancuso painted portraits of women as part of a self-directed #100daysproject. But long after the project was over, her love for portraits, and specifically women’s portraits, continued to grow strong.

Her work is bold, modern and feminine, and is made by using mostly watercolor. So it’s little wonder the world caught on, with illustrations published in Argentina, Spain, and Italy.

Take a look at some of her striking works of art.
