Alexander Daniloff - An Exceptional Artist

Strength - Daniloff Tarot

 I'm so excited to share this post, an artist I found out about today while reading a Tarot blog by a fellow blogger.  I saw one of his Major Arcana cards from his Tarot deck, Strength, that I was so drawn to, I had to find out more about this artist.

 There is a wide variety of talented, gifted and skilled artists that have created Tarot decks. And through my love and study of Tarot I have learned about so many of them. More often than not they are exceptionally creative and versatile. Alexander Daniloff  is one such artist. He is Ukrainian and lives in Italy. His art work invites you into a realm of fantastical imagination, with enough realism to bring this world to life.  It reminds me of the way Alice In Wonderland made me feel as a child. I wanted to go into that land, and did in my imagination.

These talented artists that create Tarot decks have so many other creative outlets and are involved in a variety of other art forms which greatly enhances so much to their art illustration.
 Alexander Daniloff has a fascinating background in puppetry, theatre and costume and fashion design.

I think you will agree that Alexander Daniloff is a uniquely exceptional artist.
