Melody Hesaraky - Postponed!

Textile Designer, Melody Hesaraky has created a new series of illustrations inspired by the current issues our world is facing, brought on by Covid-19 and the Coronavirus. Her aim is to inspire and help people to understand and come to terms with what is happening to us all.

Inspired by the current situation in New York City, and indeed around the world to varying degrees, these illustrations are portraying how it feels to be quarantined, and isolated. Kept at a distance from our fellow human beings, and even separated from our close friends and family for our own good.

“Everything I have been reading lately starts with "Due to COVID-19.. IT IS CANCELLED...It is time to be sensible and inspire each other.”

Like many of her other illustrations, music was one of the leading forces for Melody Hesaraky while creating these illustrations, although this time it was music listened to while at home, and through a pair of headphones.

She believes that even though we may be separated for a time, art can inspire us and bring us together, even in these most difficult of times.

Melody Hesaraky - Rushing Into The Paradise

Through harnessing the magic of music, Melody Hesaraky aims to show us how we can experience the beats and rhythm she can hear, just from looking at her images. By looking deep into the many lines and swirls, as well as the use of colour and shadows, it is the artist’s hope that the observer can perhaps dream without needing words, and fly through time and space without needing to move.
Melody created her works while either listening to music in different music venues, or while conjuring up the memory of the listening experience, and the feelings the music evoked within her soul, in order to create her pieces of art.


Melody shares her feelings about her fashion illustrations with us:

“Music has created impetus and inspiration for this series of my fashion illustrations. I wished to produce a pure and transcendental art form and not just use a familiar image! I use music as an analogy or metaphor in my designs and artistic expression. By listening to music and emulating it in my work, I have discovered unconventional techniques in my pattern designs and art-making approach. Like music, my work was created from the depth of my inner self and the purest way to express this is letting the rhythm leads what I draw.”
