Stella Im Hultberg

Christine wrote about Stella's work here on decor8 in early August, 2006. Somehow, the post cannot be found (although blogger shows it was published). Anyway, I wanted to post this again since Stella recently added new color prints and I think they're just gorgeous. At $20, you can collect several. They can be found right here. Here's the original post from August '06 written by Miss Christine below (who now writes for the Boston Weekly Dig). Enjoy!


Meet Stella
By: Christine Liu, decor8 contributor

The ink sketches and watercolour paintings by Stella Im Hultberg perfectly exude the sad, sophisticated energy of the postmodern ingenue. Women pout with seductively disillusioned lips; limb-entwined couples wait in silence for a sadder truth. Every character is shadowed, stained, and soiled with glamour.

Working as an artist in New York City, Stella features her work in galleries and sells her prints online at her momomoogie shop. Trained in industrial design and toy design, she currently applies her creative energy to her print works. Treat yourself to the delicious darkness of her online sketchbooks and portfolio.

Stella broadcasts art updates at her art livejournal, and her daily report covers all sorts of life's delight from green tea soba salad to a mottled seashell collection.

In addition to the prints for sale on momomoogie, she boasts a design collection of wallets and shirts at art-collective-vinyl-wallet company Poketo.

In Stella's world, the city self-reflects with beauty and sorrow alike. Your thoughts on Stella?
