Illustrator and painter Yaoyao Ma Van As paints a beautiful story with each image she makes of couples in love. Her art captures people showing their love in ordinary moments, which we may have brushed away for being too mundane otherwise. She brings out the significance of those ordinary moments as her images highlight the beauty and meaning they carry. Her images are life caught in a still moment.
Her images are so deep that they will touch your heart and make you see the magic in the mundane. These illustrations serve as a great reminder of the love behind the things our partner does for us. They will hold a mirror to your relationship and show you what you have been missing out on when you were taking things for granted.
Her art is proof that romance isn't only in the grand gestures but also in the everyday-moments. From a man taking care of his sick partner to a couple not being able to keep their hands off each other at the airport, this is what real love is like.
