My name is Alisa and I am an illustrator. Saali (which is Alisa but with syllables swapped around) is my professional nickname.

My style is colorful, detailed and based on natural relationships between volumes, light, shadows and perspective. Conceptually my pictures often contain some elements of absurd, fantasy and craziness.

One of the main reasons why I create pictures is inspiration. I get inspired by works and ideas of artists, designers, writers, thinkers. By mistakes and imperfections too. Making illustrations is my way of understanding the world.
