Silent Spaces is an ongoing series (2012 -) of small, intimate mixed media landscapes currently inspired by the chalk uplands of the Chiltern Hills.
Jon is an artist from Canada, working primarily in ink. His current work titled 'Smalltown Boy' is narrative illustration, combining text and images.
Had to feature these illustrations from 21 year old Industrial Design Student from Pune, India. Illustrations of famous footballers. The illustrations were a part of an academic project.
We featured this wonderful work by Louise Byng back in 2013, but it seems fitting to pop it back at the top spot, in memory of a music and fashion icon. RIP David Bowie!
I am an 18 year old visual artist based in Byron Bay, Australia. My work serves to combine elements of classic portraiture with modernism, drawing inspiration from the play between light and dark. I utilise raw and eccentric colours and while my brushstrokes and pencil marks are often left exposed, my work still holds a classic elegance.
Colourful fashion Illustrations by the 24 year old artist.
Beautifully delicate drawings on paper of animals and birds, combined with symbols and cosmogony by the French artist.
'Even if my actual body of artwork is tending to refer to symbols and cosmogony, there's no premeditation in my art practice. My artwork is inspired by nature and find his roots in unconscious. Loss, absence, desire, souvenir and rebirth are the themes explored in my artwork. Crown, rabbit, mouth, bird… appear recurrently like a language of my own myth.'
Interesting series of drawings titled “How To Define A Cat?” by the contemporary artist from Tallinn, Estonia.
'All of the work has a philosophical conception, there is always something hidden behind the work. The artist is inspired by questions about existence itself, why do we dream? Where do questions come from? What is consciousness? What is to believe? How do you define a cat, what makes one cat behave totally different from the other?
The work is abstract, but minimal. Like a puzzle. The reality lies behind the eye of the beholder, as in art.'
Love these Poster designs with handdrawn portraits of different monkeys illustrating the seven deadly sins.
Loving the graphic bold colours and layers of these collage illustrations.
'My work is primarily a autobiographical study of the absurd and surreal nature of the city I live in, focusing on the rituals, patterns and daily routines that I have become accustomed to.'
Pleased to feature some more great illustrations by Philippe, for the second time. This work speaks for itself!
Love the childlike diagrams and marks within these illustrations, as if a thought process is being mapped out and calculated.
'Grégoire Devin brilliantly evokes mental, urban ideas through his paintings, sculptures and photographs. While using street art as a base, Grégoire Devin integrates concepts and styles that draw from the early facets of childhood art, his travels, and his interactions with street culture and graffiti.'
Really love the depth of darkness of these charcoal drawings, next to the black and white photographs, like memories fading to black.
'Joucla works primarily with film photography and through the practice of charcoal drawing. Through his practice Joucla questions the in-between spaces that exist among the landscape, unnoticed or ignored, transforming them into ambiguous scenes that appear both familiar and unfamiliar.'
You can see how these illustrations have been inspired by photography, lovely drawings by the London based, Spanish illustrator.
