Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Illustration on Tuesday 11 February 2014

Take a look at these illustrations created by French artist Geoffrey Guillin. Inspired by the 1920s and the silent film era, Guillin has created almost life-like portraits with these characters. There’s so much detail on every face, it’s hard to look away! Guillin has been drawing since a young age, when he was influenced by his fascination with the elegant art-deco illustrations of the early 20th century.

Gangloff sticks to a limited palette of colours that sheds art on everyday scenarios. Her work has an interesting storytelling quality that’s big on attitude and honest (no bullshit) human emotion.

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Saturday 20 April 2013

My art professors have always told me to “activate negative space”. And I thought I knew what that meant. But then I stumbled across Thomas Lamadieu‘s fantastic Sky Art illustrations. These imaginative scribbles make the most of being inclosed by buildings. Instead of focusing on the buildings themselves, Lamadieu animates the spaces in between. Take that for […]

Faceshifting paintings by New Zealand artist Henrietta Harris

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Thursday 21 February 2013

New Zealand illustrator Henrietta Harris has mastered the art of delicately mournful painting. Her style radiates an other-world aura of sad playfulness and whimsy. Each image is something familiar with a cleverly twisted detail to add interest while creating a sense of alienation. I particularly love the pieces with added captions written in hand lettering.
