“Each of my works carries the idea reflects my inner state, sometimes it’s love, or death, sex, good and evil, using his sketches, I communicate with the world, and tell some stories.”
Sergey, who goes by the alias Milk1422, is a talented and unique artist on Instagram, who’s work has inspired makeup artists to use her drawings on real models. Here is what we learned when we had a chat with Sergey-
What made you become a face chart artist?
I always loved to draw portraits. I worked for a beauty company, and need to attract facechart, and I realized that this is exactly what I like.
Other makeup artists on Instagram create the looks based on your art. How does it feel to have been able to start a movement like that?
I am very glad that many makeup artists love what I do and I want to copy my sketches! For me it is a great honor! Makeup I don’t like to do, although it turns out very good, but I would like to develop the images.
What made you decide to use the name Milk1422 as your Instagram name?
I’ll leave it a secret =)
Where do you get inspiration for your designs?
I find inspiration in everything around me, nature, architecture, people, music, movies, history, space, even my own shadow.
You have a very unique approach, being that your art is dark but also full of brightness and color. What inspired you to use that kind of style?
Each of my works carries the idea reflects my inner state, sometimes it’s love, or death, sex, good and evil, using his sketches, I communicate with the world, and tell some stories.
Where did you learn to draw pictures like these? They are very different from the art you see everyday!
I was taught to draw mom, I really appreciate it! As well as the curriculum. But most importantly, the fact that I paint every day, honing his skills.
Where do you see yourself taking your art in the future?
I love what I’m doing now, I see myself and my future, I will paint images into your fabulous world!
