Artist Alisa Lariushkina Sculpts Beautiful Swirling Scenery From Polymer Clay
Contemporary artists are now discovering new mediums to express their art.

Years of experience helped her attain her own unique style and technique. And when she started making framed landscapes out of these flexible material, her enthralling art instantly captured the eyes of many people. Idyllic landscapes composed of swirling lines and coiled ribbons, each palpable painting brims with color and texture as if the subjects are ready to pop off the framed canvas.
Polymer Clay Art Inspired By Van Gogh’s Swirling Lines
Inspired by the works of Vincent van Gogh, her polymer clay art also features the distinctive swirling patterns and glowing colors that the legendary painter was known for. Despite the heavy influence of post-impressionist style on her artworks, Lariushkina made sure to imbue her own style to her sculptural landscapes.
In addition to swirling skies, she also molds tiny discs to compose grasses, flowers, and gentle water streams. Furthermore, clouds made of white dollops add another touch of allure to the fascinating dreamscapes.
