Pawel Przewlocki

Pawel Przewlocki

Pawel Przewlocki is a Boston based artist who recreates movement in shape, with fluid representations of expanding geometrics. Originally from Poland, the skilled shape shifter explores gradient and position by creating the same form continuously but in a range of lighter tones and slightly altered perception. This results in a scaled effect of each colour, documenting it’s fade and opacity levels. Although these look like computerised experiments, the most impressive quality is that these are all created by hand, meticulously painted with acrylic. Feature


Miss Take

Miss Take

With the only photo of her on the Internet being a scanned in Polaroid, her hair in front of her face, wearing sunglasses over the top and raising two middle fingers at the camera. All we know about the elusive 22-year-old Copenhagen based painter, illustrator and street artist, is that she dropped out of school at the age of 18 and has since been making a living from doing what she loves. Her work is beautifully delicate, specialising in watercolours and ink, and her screen prints are individually hand finished, by painting on top of them. Noticeably absent, from the press and the Internet, going by the pseudo name Miss Take – the fact that you cannot put a face to the name or her work makes it even more ethereal. Feature


Josh Brill

Josh Brill

Born and raised in Maine, nature is both the inspiration and the main subject matter for illustrator and designer Josh Brill.

The resulting book, ‘Man As Art: New Guinea’, documents the stunning body art, tribal decoration, coloured masks and feather headdresses the people had devised, and is one of the most beautiful portraiture studies in photography.

Influenced from early childhood by The Dandy and The Beano, her stock characters are comic and cheeky and her work is energetic and playful, bold and colourful.

Travis Purrington | USD Proposal

‘The Dollar is too Nationalistic. Here’s what it should look like instead.’ Swiss Design graduate Travis Purrington has reinvented the American Dollar for his major thesis, and his version boasts no presidents, eagles or national monuments, and has a modern illustrative curiosity. The design of the dollar hasn’t significantly changed since 1929, save some anti-counterfeiting measures and the edition of ‘In God We Trust’ to all bills in 1957. Purrington’s re imaginings are awash with nature, architecture and space exploration, and are all printed with a primarily vertical layout, which he says ‘not only better reflects how we actually hold money in our hands, but serves to reset America’s perspective on what a dollar bill actually is.’ Feature

Feature


Marcel Häusler

Marcel Häusler

Independent graphic designer Marcel Häusler’s portfolio is jam-packed with top-quality work for a diverse range of international clients.

Hypnotic flashes of colour and a rather jazzy selection of shapes, explode over the space they occupy and make for an entrancing example of visual eye candy.

His usual humorous approach is still present, although it now seems to have a more refined quality without losing its abstract tone. Feature

Stephanie Rohlfs

Stephanie Rohlfs is an artist specialising in drawings, sculpture and installation. Her creations are ‘playful investigations of the inanimate life of objects,’ exploring undefinable environments and the items they contain. Although her 3D work is undoubtably visually pleasing, it’s the flat drawings of her planned sculptures that really charmed me. There is an uncomplicated joy to viewing line, colour and composition, that doesn’t need to make sense but works all the same. Stephanie produces work on an intuitive basis and interestingly prefers to leave a trail of handmade aesthetic as evidence of error and play in her process. Feature


Nicholas Stevenson

Nicholas Stevenson

Following our interview with North London-based illustrator Nicholas Stevenson who won the silver prize at the Serco Prize competition earlier this year, today it’s such a perfect day to take a closer look into the work of this multi-talented illustration prodigy and it is no surprise he won the prize.

Jeffrey Simmons

Jeffrey Simmons is a visual artist from Washington, USA. After painting for nearly 20 years, creating work with oil and acrylic on canvas, a necessary studio downsize meant switching his medium to watercolours.

Her style is understatedly cool, adding her own twist to repeated sequences of organic and geometric shapes, with a nod to 80′s nostalgia. Feature


Nicolas André

Nicolas André

Nicolas André is a French illustrator, screen printer, painter and editorial designer too. He has a natural skill in combining colour, composition and three-dimensional design. But it’s his screen printed work that really stands out. Whilst creating colour happy prints he also thinks further than the two dimensional, he has created pop out cards, concertina books and prints which are meant to be cut up to be reconstructed into intricate, beautiful paper structures. He has created perfect screen printed graphic novels, so it’s easy to see how his work has recently been picked up by Norbrow, with his brilliant new book Beyond the Surface. What a star. Feature


Yoko Honda

Yoko Honda

Potentially my new favourite illustrator, I am obsessed with Japanese artist Yoko Honda’s homages to all things 80′s. Through a combination of digital painting and print, she constructs scenes of resplendent kitsch, made up of palm trees, motels, neon signs and swimming pools, all inter-dispersed with structured lines, tiles or interior architecture. I particularly love her mountainous dreamscapes complete with multiple moons and UFOs, all in her signature colour palette. Her latest litho-printed book of works, ‘Summertime Love’, is available to pre-order now from bellykids, but for now, you can follow her on instagram @yokopium. Feature

American artist Martincic lives and works in Columbia, Missouri, and is immersively interested in environments associated with water, (eg. pools, shower stalls) and how we relate to these spaces and the various forms of privacy they offer. She explores these interests through an impressively broad range of traditional print techniques, from monotype and 3 plate etching with aquatint to relief methods and lithography, across both huge and tiny scales. Ultimately, her quiet calming prints celebrate longing and isolation, and perhaps the honest beauty of the everyday. Feature

Feature


Leo Eguiarte

Leo Eguiarte

I recently came across the work of Los Angeles based multimedia artist, Leo Eguiarte and immediately fell in love. His psychedelic paintings explore power and spirituality through symbolic shapes and striking colour schemes. Leo bases his ideas around the concept of ‘holographic conjuration,’ the visual illusion our material desires hold over us. His neon futurescapes and alluring geometric creations hark to modern hyperrealism, simplified to a basic state that seeks to confront our human existence and question our ideals. Feature


Ewen Spencer

Ewen Spencer

Brighton based british photographer Ewen Spencer is best known for his work with Mike Skinner of ‘The Streets’, videos he has produced for Massive Attack or perhaps his critically acclaimed documentary short film ‘Brandy and Coke’, which follows the underground garage rave scene in the 90s, and some of the time’s most prominent producers and MCs.

I came across Ed’s amazing artwork on Booooooom this week after founder Jeff was lucky enough to visit the Vancouver based Artist at his studio. Ed’s process involves taking a photo of a crumpled piece of reflective paper, which he prints and proceeds to cut into pixel shapes. Ed then collages his pixels according to colour before photographing for a final time to provide the final artwork. Truly incredible stuff.

Fran impressed everybody with her well considered designs, strong concepts and impeccable finish. We are very happy she claimed second place. Feature


Graduate Print Awards 2014 | 3rd Place | Callum Copley

Graduate Print Awards 2014 | 3rd Place | Callum Copley

Our first runner up for the Graduate Print Awards 2014 is the very well-deserved Callum Copley. Callums’ work combines a range of experimental print techniques that not only make for great visually alluring design, but always consider their relationship to the subject matter. Creating a poster for Kinetica Art Fair that essentially prints itself by absorbing ink is one of many examples of his creative concepts which uses the art of printing to create inspiring results. His experimentation with ultra-violet sensitive inks, letterpress and screen print make him a fully rounded print/graphic designer, and very deserving of our third place award. Feature

Linzie Hunter

Linzie Hunter

A graduate of both Glasgow and Chelsea schools of art, Linzie Hunter is renowned for her digital illustration and lettering work, although when away from the computer she enjoys traditional printmaking. Having worked with clients as impressive as Nike, Harper Collins, Time Magazine and the Guardian, her commercial work, such as her book covers and children’s illustration, is becoming well recognisable. However it is her stranger personal illustration that has interested me, from her subtly dark eyeball-devouring characters to her series of ‘uninspiring posters’, featuring de-motivating messages. Feature
