Dilka Bear, Artist and Jeweller.

December 2, 2010

Dilka Bear is a bit of an enigma. From her home in Italy, she creates wonderfully pouting,

sad little girls who seem to lead lives that we, as her audience,

can only guess at and be intrigued by.

Dilkas’ slightly eerie style, detail and characters cleverly draw the viewer into the frame.

Only then to be confronted by someone who is, in turn, regarding them.

I’m often left wondering who’s watching who !

However not all of Dilkas’ girls are part animal or quite so sombre.

In fact she has other animals that are really very amusing, like the bear in underpants.

Another talent that Dilka has is in making Jewellery, and also creating a visual history of that object

through the photographs she takes. A very versatile artist indeed.

More of Dilkas’ wonderful work can be found on her Flickr site and Etsy shop.

    I particularly like the girl who rides the reindeer . I wonder why she had a fish prince under he’d arm in the 1st pic ?

    Can I hear a children’s book coming to life ?
