is my personal project, meant to be a design and artistic
playground that keeps me creatively stimulated. The name
came to me in a delirium while on my third all-nighter junior
year in college and stems from a misspelling to the word
seraphim or seraph - the highest of the nine orders of angels
in medieval angelology.”
What would a sunset in heaven look like? Well... I'm pretty
convinced I saw one browsing through seriph.com, a super
smooth Flash showcase of Simona Lo's beautiful illustrations.
Her art conjures the impression that Dali's world of surrealism
suddenly escaped from oil and canvas to mix with a Tim Burton
fairy tale. Despite the radical use of stygian blood red
and black colors Simona breathes a certain aura of ethereal
life into them, creating not the expected depressive and
gloomy Goth cliché but something angelically dreamlike.
Suddenly I think angels dress in black and like to play
with hell-fire while shrouded in an otherworldly aerial
haze... at the same time things start feeling rather warm
and cozy. Quite a curious combination if you ask me.
When she's not dreaming up wickedly surrealistic illustrations
Simona gets to do lots of other fun stuff like being one
of the crazy design astronauts at BigSpaceship,
partaking in the invention of mad movie sites like The
Skeleton Key, Van
Helsing, and Crash.
