Interview with Night Ship artist Nadiezda

One of our newest and most popular puzzles is the Night Ship by young Mexican artist Nadiezda (pictured below).  

Artifact Puzzles: Tell us about this image - what inspired it, what is it about? 

Nos hablan de esta imagen - lo que la inspiró, ¿de qué trata?

Nadiezda: It is a place that you can only go in your dreams, a world of your own.
Es un lugar dónde solo puedes ir en tus sueños, tu propio mundo.
Artifact Puzzles: What art and artists have inspired your art and why?
¿Qué arte y los artistas han inspirado sus ilustraciones y por qué?
Nadiezda: Syzslo and Betteo. I was inspired by their use of color and their cubismish art style.
Szyslo and Betteo. Me gusta su uso de color y su arte estilo medo cubismo.
[Ed. Note: She's referring to Peruvian painter Fernando de Szyszlo and Mexican artist Patricio Betteo - you can check out their art on]
Artifact Puzzles:  You have fans from all over the world already, and stylistically you borrow from Japanese manga. Are there ways in which you feel your art is distinctly Mexican, or is that not a useful distinction?
Tienes muchos fans de todo el mundo ya, y estilísticamente presta de manga japonés. ¿Hay maneras en que sientes que tu arte es netamente mexicana o Latina, o no es una distinción útil?
Nadiezda: While the appereance of certain characters may be from a manga influence, there are some colors and some symbols i find to be Mexican influence. Also i'm really fond to "El día de muertos" which inspires me a lot too.
Aunque la apariencia de algúnos personajes pueda ser influencia japonesa, hay algunos colores y símbolos que son de influencia Mexicana. Me gusta mucho "El día de muertos" Me ha inspirado mucho también.
