Ryo Takemasa

i don’t think i have ever spent so much time looking at illustrations of vegetables (if only i would spend as much time actually eating them). these wonderful renderings are by Japanese illustrator Ryo Takemasa who has done work for a number of international publications. check out his work at his website & blog. he also has a shop – so you can buy some veggies in print!

Winnie Truong

it’s always wonderful to see what can happen in a year, and it was almost exactly a year ago that i featured the work of artist Winnie Truong. her most recent body of work Rites of Passage has just opened at Gallery Benoni in Copenhagen, playfully exploring the feeling of age and the precariousness of time.

Rites of Passage explores the transition from youth to oblivion. The subjects in her portraits are poised for no specific occasion, neither celebrating nor lamenting their experience of humanity and death. With the experience of getting older, personality and psyche are in a state of flux, making the feelings of growth and decay simultaneous and ambiguous. The rites of passage then become unclear, leaving mortality to be donned and adorned by these characters merely as ornament.

Emily Ferretti

i love the cool hued work of Aussie artist Emily Ferretti. she is represented by the Sophie Gannon Gallery. these pieces also appear in her book!

Ferretti’s oil-on-linen paintings of plants, rocks, domestic settings, sporting ephemera and architectural details are remarkable for their lightness of touch and subtleties in process, tonality and mark making, sidling the representational and abstract via a quiet, poetic tenor. Isolated from wider narrative and context, her various fragmentary scenes – athletic tracks, skate ramps, pot plants or winter forest scapes – work to bestow the day-to-day with a particular gravity and significance.

Kemi Mai

Kemi Mai is an eighteen year old illustrator from Manchester who i am SUPREMELY JEALOUS OF. this girl can do amazing things with pixels. she makes her art using a tablet and photoshop. she is amazing, check out her work here and here.

My work starts with an idea derived from thoughts or abstract feelings, which I aim to express in a way that also appeals to me atheistically. Colour has become incredibly important to me, it can be so influential in setting the overall tone of the piece. I like to think of the majority of my paintings as visual representations of things that couldn’t exist organically in real life. Whilst an element of realism is important to me, I haven’t ever been interested in depicting a scene that resembles a photograph without a concept. My work isn’t weighted with messages intended to change the world, but it’s something through which I can be honest, and I appreciate that freedom greatly.

Chris Turnham

the modernist feeling in these rad illustrations by the very talented LA based illustrator & printmaker Chris Turnham made me want to watch Mad Men right away. luckily the last season is just around the corner, my pretties.

Archist

since it’s a bit of a design slash art history day around here – i dig these clever Archist posters by Italian architect & designer Federico Babina, where he imagines what buildings by 27 famous artists would look like (Architect + Artist – get it!)

the important question is – which of these building would you actually want to live in? i think walking into Keith Haring’s dog house every day would put a big smile on my face. otherwise i’d have to go for Duchamp’s building, for sheer wack factor.

all images c/o  Federico Babina. see them all here. buy any of these as a print on Society6.

Sabrina Arnault

there are a few professions / talents in this world that i am always supremely envious of. one is furniture maker slash woodworker (this would be my dream job if anyone ever asks me) and the other is illustrator. it never ceases to amaze me when i come across a talented illustrator whose voice and style are uniquely their own. how do they do it! i say. or sigh, rather. my latest discovery is Sabrina Arnault, a french illustrator based in Montreal.

Sabrina Arnault is a French illustrator who lives in Barcelona Montreal. She works in her little, cosy studio but when sunny days come, she likes to draw on her terrace surrounded by plants and cactuses. All she needs to work are pencils, black ink pens, paper, a ruler, her iMac, a cup of tea and good music. *

images c/o Sabrina Arnault. you can buy her work at Society6. quote c/o Sir.
