Nathália Suellen (born 20 February 1989) is an independent fine artist and commercial illustrator based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Entirely self-taught, Suellen’s signature style incorporates female in surroundings of a twisted and disturbing world characterized by the use of dark elements, pop-surrealism, haunting sceneries and otherworldly creatures done through a mixture ofphotography, 3D and digital painting.Motivated by her love for combining death and dystopia with extremely colorful imaginary worlds, her works constantly portrays the inevitable decay of the world, the well dressed yet sad beauty, madness and fake happiness as a reminder that death come to us all. Her main characters are often captured in scenes where something sad is about to happen, as if they were trapped in a bad dream. The themes of her work include self-discovery, sorrow,dreams/nightmares, fear of unknown, mortality, femininity and the juxtaposition of dark surrealism and fantasy imagery. She is also fascinated and highly influenced by fashion photography, fairy-tales, antique engravings, retro, horror-themed and post-apocalyptic stuff, personal dreams and the “afterlife” world as she imagine. Nathália started her own business in 2008, specializing in dark art, cover design and photo manipulation. Despite her personal illustrations, Nathália is mostly known by her commercial works and a notable clientele list which consists of musicians, photographers, best-selling writers as well as major companies including Random House, Penguin Group, Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster, McCann Erickson, Bloomsbury, Scholastic and Harry N. Abrams Books.
