These quirky little prints by Lyvia Aylward-Davies are just thing to frame or gift to your bestie. What says I love you like a cute, hand-drawn pigeon proudly proclaiming that it will shit on everything you love? Her illustrations are hilarious in a tongue-in-cheek manner. I particularly identify with her illustration about not sharing my Nutella. Because, well, […]
Through composition, shadow, and pattern, I like to create images that have a rich narrative basis. Taking influence from Japanese woodblock prints, German expressionist cinema, medieval woodcuts, and everything in between, I take the craft of papercutting, mix it with digital technologies and create my own harmonious hybrid.
Till Rabus creates amazing realistic artwork with a technique that will drop you from your chair. His recent paintings, Fearless Realism, now on exhibition at the Aeroplastics gallery in Belgium, are hyper-realistic paintings of steamy hot bedroom scenes. Other works are remains of junk food, tires, sculptures and also puzzles of 4,200 pieces of garbage.
Helena Maratheftis is a London-based professional doodler who is obsessed with saturated colour and in-your-face patterns. Her work spans the fields of illustration, graphic design, hand-drawn type and cheeky humour.
London-based photographer Madame Peripetie’s conceptual series Metamorphosis was created for the jewelry designer Daisy Feng. Shrouded in a sheet and adorned with the delicate, spider web-like jewlery, a woman’s body becomes transformed into something architectural. The series is all about that transformation. It takes something as familiar as the female form and quite literally objectifies […]
We are a fan of London-based artist Slinkachu, if you don’t yet know. The last we heard of him, he was exhibiting in Belgium. And now it appears he’s been busy setting up a tiny person getting crushed under the giant foot of some guy at a icy park in Moscow. We approve.
Kerry Hyndman is a great exponent of classy modern illustration, all chunky, rough, angular shapes with clean lines and some boss texture, along with a fine line in glorious shades of blue. Ain’t that a lovely blue?
London-based artist Ruben Ireland’s work is emotionally charged through its simplicity of subject, stark color combinations, and dreamy yet sinister portraiture. But, to me, no series stands out in it’s brilliance quite like his Warrior series. Mainly black and white with a pop of color, these pieces burrow into the deepest sectors of your soul.
I’m a London born and raised illustrator working mainly in line drawings, using pens, markers, and digital illustration processes to create my images. I find my inspiration from people, fashion, and photographs to produce crisp line drawings with eye-catching subjects.
Mark Powell from London uses a standard big biro pen to draw amazing portraits of elderly people on the backs of old envelopes. His works are as evocative as his canvas is unusual. Regardless, the results of his creative efforts are amazing.
London-based Robert Ryan works with a form of art I wish I had the patience for — papercutting. He applies his emotive and fantastical art to a variety of applications, from screenprints and textiles, to ceramics and lazercutting.
