What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Making a Splash

Canan Esen

Fascinated with the natural world and concerned with the health of our oceans, young artist Canan Esen focuses her considerable talent on animals and ocean creatures. Her watercolors are sometimes literal and sometimes more fanciful, with entire ecosystems growing on the backs of whales. Incorporating artful drips and splashes that makes them seem almost casual, her portraits are sensitive, thoroughly modern, and undeniably beautiful.

You can follow the young artist on Pictame and Instagram, and BucketFeet even has a few pairs of shoes sporting one of her humpback paintings! Esen donates 10% of her profits to causes like Lonely Whale which are working to improve ocean life.

  5. These are charming. I love whales so I love her art work and also the fact she donates some of the proceeds to marine conservation. You’ve given me another person to follow on Instagram.
