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

From Uzbekistan to Ohio

Dinara Mirtalipova

Uzbek-born artist Dinara Mirtalipova paints wooden and porcelain eggs with updated versions of traditional Uzbekistan motifs and designs, and her results are remarkable (and not just for Easter!). Though she now lives in Ohio, the self-taught artist’s themes feature the folk history, flora, and fauna found in her homeland of Uzbekistan. When working with her eggs, she typically keeps her color palette to the traditional shades of reds, soft oranges, and greens against a white or black background.

In addition to painted eggs, Mirtalipova also produces and sells charming art which is available as giclee prints, figurines, gift wrap, printed textiles, and even buttons! She thinks of her art as a means of telling stories, and her folk and fairytale references are cheerful and would brighten any home.

You can see all of Dinara Mirtalipova’s lovely work on her website and on Instagram and Etsy.

  1. These are all lovely. They definitely have that folk art vibe to them. I like the use of the minimal colour palette.

  2. I love them all and I’m pretty sure I need a house gnome. I checked out her Etsy page and there are no eggs as of now, but of course “tis the season”. The art prints are all nice and reasonably priced.

  3. The hand drawn design on the paper incorporating the eggs on top really sells it for me. As well as the cat in front of… well, pretty much anything
