Mexican illustrator Elena Boils’s luscious floral prints for YCN

We stumbled across these bright floral posters for YCN by Mexican illustrator Elena Boils this morning, a lovely find that has perfectly coincided with the new edition of a baby spider plant on our communal It’s Nice That desk. Elena’s lively, layered plant patterns look like something you might find on Frida Kahlo’s dresses, and we love the angular, boxy backgrounds juxtaposed with her luscious, textured shrubbery. Now based in the UK, Elena is interested in “nature as well as surreal creations,” an influence which is prevalent in her vibrant layering of two-dimensional shapes against three-dimensional spaces.
