Artwork Themes & Subject Matter

  • "Most of Janaina Medeiros’ inspiration comes from fairy tales, folktales and mythologies, as they are old and mysterious stories that have sparked her imagination since childhood. Moons, stars and other esoteric symbols are elements present in her work, which are part of her aesthetic influenced by Art Nouveau, Pre-Raphaelites, and Japanese anime and manga." – Beautiful Bizarre, 2024.
