From globe-trotting artist Kelsey Montague, whose uplifting murals have dotted Sydney's shores, Manhattan's sultry streets, California's coastline and everywhere in between, comes a beautiful new interactive adult coloring book.
Famed for blending street art and social media, Kelsey Montague's amazing illustrations invite colorists of all ages to make her unique creations their own. Her pen-and-ink drawings uplift the spirit with fanciful images of butterflies, ladybug wings and kites. Unlike other coloring books, Kelsey's includes several special sections that allow artists to share their dreams, to make 3-D art, and to create wearable art in the form of flirty masks, top hats and fascinators. In all her designs, Kelsey has hidden a heart to find and decorate.
Printed on high-quality paper with excellent opacity and perforated pages, these designs lend themselves to brilliant bursts of colour, What Lifts You encourages colorists to look to their own hearts for inspiration and to share that joy with others.
About the Author
Kelsey Montague is an international street artist who believes that art should not be separated from the human experience, but that the human experience should have a hand in creating the art itself.
Kelsey has painted large scale, interactive street murals in six countries on three continents. Each piece has provided an opportunity for thousands of people to become living works of art. Participants are invited to step in to the artwork, explore what inspires them and post pictures on social media under the Instagram hashtag #whatliftsyou. Kelsey’s art has been featured by the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Mashable and MTV, as well as seen on the Instagram accounts of Taylor Swift and Vanessa Hudgens.
The What Lifts You coloring book is a natural outcome of Kelsey’s philosophy that creating art should be an interactive, thought-provoking and uplifting experience.
