Illustrator of the month – Eizin Suzuki

Bask in the illustrated sunlight of Eizin Suzuki. A pop of colour and a splash of light shimmer through Japanese illustrator Eizin Suzuki's holiday-style snaps. Suzuki made his name designing magazine covers and advertising campaigns for leading Japanese companies, including Nikon, Suntory, Nissan, and Nippon Oil, as well as a number of Tatsuro Yamashita’s album covers.…

The Colour of Memory

A colourfully charming retrospect of an Impressionist who's dividing opinions at Tate Modern.Stepping into the 'The Colour of Memory', a retrospective of Pierre Bonnard at Tate Modern, I felt a little lackluster and uninspired by the paintings I saw in Room 1. But realising I had 12 more rooms to trudge though, I tried to…

Illustrator of the month – Hiro Isonoo

Like stepping back in time to the video games of old, or some psychedelic trip to no-place, Hiro Isonoo's illustrations are wonderfully enchanting.

You're absorbed into an augmented, pixel-like world, bursting with a fusion of different kinds of fauna, flora and…

Her work is rich in traditional American landscape painting, and on the surface is both…

Well, if you invest your time studying Hong's illustrations, trust me, you won't be disappointed or disillusioned. Okay, granted,…

Illustration Illuminates London

What could be more illustrative of the vibrant and eclectic London art and craft scene than the wonderfully illustrious London Illustration Fair! That's a rather epic intro to the London Illustration Fair, but such is the impressive quality of work that emanates from the fair every year, I can't hep but share the excitement and wonder…

Artist of the month – Louise Zhang

Paintings and sculptures that fascinate and repulse, but when you get close, these bizarre organic works are anything but a delight.   At first glance, Louise Zhang's work is drippingly sweet and seductive. Her use of neon-tastic, artificial colours are exciting and alluring to the eye, but as you begin to study the blob-like forms,…
