dan hillier - eclectix

Featured Artist: Dan Hillier

Dan works in mixed media using collage, Photoshop and his own pen and ink drawings – producing screen prints of the final image. He takes much of his inspiration from old Gothic Victorian etchings. The ink paintings are done “using lots of water, lots of Daler-Rowney Calli ink and lots of delicate scratching with a dip nib pen.”

Eclectix - kofta fashion design

The Fierce Fashion of Konstantin Kofta

Eclectic clothing designer Konstantin Kofta creates extremely original, avant-garde and sumptuously designed backpacks, bags and shoes. The eclectic flavors of Bosch, Audrey Hepburn, Giger and Edward Scissorhands pop into mind.  He pulls his inspiration from human anatomy (spines, skin), elements of nature (tree roots, soil textures), Baroque architecture and his interpretations of the sacred and darker spirits.


Not Just Architecture, But Artitechture

Street Art: CRYPTIK

Cryptik creates mesmerizing mandala-like designs, calligraphic iconography painted with crisp precision and mind bending detail. His inspirations are compassionate and spiritual in nature, pulling from Zen teachings, Buddha, Ganesha, Eastern philosophies and iconography – in a palette of earthy browns, golds and black.

If you were awake, you must have noticed the stunning Academy Awards graphic design on the recent Oscars 2015 telecast. Henry Hobson is one of the unsung graphic designers behind those category introductions, along with the California animation studio Elastic and show co-producer Lee Lodge. The fantastic graphics were the best part of the whole show, breaking up the usual pomp and cheese with refreshingly beautiful visuals.
