Rome-based artist Ekaterina Panikanova is an excellent illustrator and painter. But what makes his work really special is his use of books as canvas. Panikanova achieves a collage-like effect by lying these books open and flat while drawing on them. And the results are quite remarkable. We love the composition and overlapping textures.
