Using a blend of collage and digital imagery, Bozena Rydlewska aka Bozka, creates fantastical forms of life, filled with colour. We like the intensity created by layering so many elements together. The birds and insects found in her imagined forests are hybrids of multiple ruffles, tufts, patterns, and feathers. But, as much as they are bright and powerful, they are delicate and feminine. Here, she describes her work and what she does.
The different talents of French artist, Sebastien Feraut aka Niark1 are as multiple as are the eyes of the weird, wolfish creatures that inhabit his work. His trippy imagery, which manages a sense of darkness despite its beaming colours, fills illustrations and graphics as well as his own large paintings. The strong individual character of his work moves unscathed from his tactile, hand-made mark-rich paintings to crisp edges of his vector-based work.
For most of us, the entire skin of a man flying off might be a bit gruesome, but when the talented Mimi Leung does it, it’s an explosion of fun and colour.
The artist behind this series of ethereal, experimental photographs describes herself as a digital and analogue photographer with a huge love for alternative printing processes and all other avantgarde mixed media techniques. We’re glad Eni Turkeshi’s approaches her photography in such a way because the results are beautiful, haunting images.
We like the fun illustrations of Bradford, UK-based Patrick O’Leary who creates work that is rich in strong colour and exhibits plenty of personality. Patrick tells us a little more about his background and his work process for these below.
‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything’ is out now on general release in the UK.
‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything’ is a new film starring Simon Pegg as Jack, “a paranoid children’s author whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck”. We were invited to have a look at the film by the co-director and production designer, Chris Hopewell of Collision Films.
Duncan Sham’s experimental approach to materials in his typographical work brings a real physicality to them, which is original from one project to the next. Whether they are slick, digital designs or meticulously hand-made, the scale and level of details often makes them mini sets.
