About Miron Schmuckle

Born in Romania during the Cold War and trained in Germany, illustrator Miron Schmuckle creates vibrant compositions of imagined organic forms using India inks, watercolors, and oils. His detailed images evoke vintage botanical drawings and employ a palette of rich jewel tones against clear white backgrounds. Schmuckle describes the resulting biomorphic flora as “allegories of the senses,” and likens his process to the surrealist practice of automatic writing. “My hands start to translate my thoughts onto the paper,” he says. “Once I am in the process, I can stop thinking while my hand continues to paint.”

Romanian, b. 1966
