With her parents as her first source of inspiration, architect and illustrator Garance Vallée (1993) knew from a young age that art & architecture would be her calling. Daily inspired by the world around her, Vallee -now based in Paris- created this colourful and well balanced wallpainting. As she describes it: “The relation between bright colours and waving lines makes the composition vibrate."
Abstract portraits and shapes, bright colours and moody florals. It’s the work of UK-based illustrator Marcello Velho (1987). Velho likes to work with simple colours, to create a clean almost ‘folk like’ piece of art. His work has been seen throughout different publications and he has designed products for various brands all around the world.
Experiencing the artwork of illustrator Pauline Blanchard (1991), is like stepping into a dreamlike world. In this world Blanchard shifts between painting and photography. As an illustrator she likes to paint big characters with little heads, as she did for HKliving. Born in Paris, she now works from her little luminous studio in the north east of France.
Does art come from the heart? It definitely does when looking at the artwork of Portland based artist Benjamin Ewing (1993). Spanning the fields of print, design, fine art and photography, Ewing’s work feels like a never ending story. This young multidisciplinary artist aims to put his emotions directly on paper, which results in fluid lines, always with a focal point to get lost in.
