Elicia Edijanto’s black-and-white watercolor paintings depict intimate scenes of children interacting with wild animals framed in striking silhouettes. The Indonesia-based artist juxtaposes small figures with large figures and dangerous characters with innocent characters in tranquil moments of reflection.

Void of color and surrounding landscape, Edijanto’s work seems to emphasize the importance of interaction in the face of uncertainty or potential danger. As the child patiently crouches before the elephant, stands before the bear or gazes into the wolf’s eyes, he finds the creatures didn’t want to harm him all along.
