These Drawings Perfectly Illustrate The Beauty Of Single Life

Published 4 years ago

“Postmodern Loneliness” is a series that celebrates being single. Using pencil, ink, and watercolor, Mexico-based artist Idalia Candelas draws women who are content to be alone. Her inspiration? Candelas’ time living alone in Mexico City.

“The theme of the loneliness has been recurring in my drawings,” Candelas told Mic. “I like to show women who exist in solitude but do not suffer. They are not depressed or crying. Rather [they] are safe, exalting in the sense of enjoying the company of just herself.”
