Cosmic designs by Petra Kostova
Petra Kostova is the graphic designer behind the project Pet & Dot. Originally from Slovakia and now based in Copenhagen, she has always been interested in art and drawing. It was while she was studying marketing communication that she rediscovered her passion for visual art, and, for the rest of her studies, focused primarily on the visual aspect of marketing communication. After a couple of years of working in the field of graphic design, she discovered a pure freedom of expression through drawing.
Petra is currently working on beautiful pointillistic ink drawings; a style characterised by creating a multitude of dots. However, Petra offers a modern take on this method by exploring different themes such as smooth gradients, waves, geometric shapes and galaxies. Scandinavia has always played an important role in inspiration with its minimalistic design, but also the cold seas, beautiful skies and landscapes.
Pet & Dot art is minimalistic in its aesthetic but paying close attention to the smallest detail of each drawing. Every tiny dot matters as each little speck works with the others, coming together to create a whole - just as each atom is vital for the creation of our universe.
