Apak Studio

Coming straight out Portland, Oregon is the creative duo known as Apak. Consisting of the Aron Piland and Ayumi Kajkawa, Apak is known in particular for creating rich and colorful gouache/acrylic paintings on wood featuring the utopian lives and adventures of curious little beings living in lush fantastic environments surrounded by friendly little animals, the landscapes are familiar yet surreal, hinting at a fantastic narrative while suggesting truths about the real world at the same time.

If my writing sounds extra fancy today, it's because I stole most of it from Apak's bio. You can read the rest of it and check out more of their work here.
