Melinda Braathen

Guest artist, The Light Observer magazine, The Water Issue

For the magazine, Braathen reinterpreted the myth of Icarus, inspired by the poem Landscape with the fall of Icarus by William Carlos Williams. She created a dynamic and colorful series of pencil and pastel drawings, fully expressing her abstract visual language.


The Light Observer is an independent magazine published twice a year, with an international distribution through selected stores, (bookshops, museums, concept stores, online).
