Phaedra Richter (aka fedralita)
I once noticed something: what people miss most of all is their own true self-their inner feelings, their fantasies, their secret desires, their wild hopes and impossible dreams. So I began creating a whole new world where everyone can find themselves in mysterious places, shiny kingdoms, pink skies, yellow seas, resting majestically,laughing quietly, whimsically sad, happily floating.
Every single character in my work is based on someone I know, what I see in them and where I takes them. I was born in Vienna (Austria) and grew up in Syros (a Greek island). After completing secondary education in Syros, I returned to Vienna were I pursued Graphic and Communication Design studies and at the same time started working as an illustrator. In 2010, I completed my design degree and today I works on exhibits in Austria, Germany and Greece. I am now living in Berlin working as a graphic designer and illustrator.
