Artist Miranda Lorikeet uses MS Paint to Produce Dreamlike Drawings


Using only MS Paint, Australian artist Miranda Lorikeet creates a pastel universe with her fun but contemplative digital drawings. Many of her drawings center around two naked girls in a beautiful, chaotic world. Miranda, who is based in Sydney and grew up in the 90’s as computers and software like MS Paint were on the rise, describes her art as “childish, simple, contemplative, familiar but surreal”.


Miranda’s drawings often feature landscapes where water meets the land, and give the viewer the suspicion they are looking st something beautiful but perhaps something about it isn’t quite right.
