d’Holbachie Yoko’s bold spectrum of colours


Psychedelic candy-coated colour madness- fun fun fun I say!
Japanese artist d’Holbachie Yoko is a master at creating rich, multicoloured and stimulating worlds populated by decorative, playful, cute and yet mysterious and manic creatures. With these digital artworks, Yoko manages to use colour intensely, rousing the eye of the viewer without overdoing the viewers experience.

And her whimsical creatures?
d’Holbachie Yoko expresses her work as follows: “Animals, insects, fish, and toys… These things used to be close to me when I was a child. I like to take these in my design. Maybe it is because my childhood memory is vivid, or I am still childish. I love long tentacle-like shapes with stripes or dappled patterns, such as octopus tentacles. They look as if they are presenting something gently, or as if they are looking for something.”

Enjoy the journey into one bold, playful universe of colour.

Icinori – Mayumi Otero and Raphael Urwiller


These illustrated prints excite me. Love the colours, love the texture, love the layering, love the depth and love the strange stories these prints tell. Icinori is a project by Mayumi Otero and Raphael Urwiller, students from Ecole Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Strasbourg. Every singe aspect of these prints is hand made: hand printed, hand bound and hand cut- I love that – real beautifully crafted work.

Chelsea Greene Lewyta


Wow wow wow, so young and so so talented. Chelsea Greene Lewyta is a student at Pratt Institute for Illustration, New York. Growing up with an adopted Korean older sister, Chelsea has been exposed to much Asian culture. This is definitely visible in her illustrations. Her soft colour pallet and beautiful line work carries heavy mythical and sometimes extremely sexual and violent themes opposed to her childrens book illustrations that are completely innocent and pure. I love the constant connection Chelsea draws between nature, the animal world and the feminine, sometimes innocent and mystiacl and other times brutal and savage.

Joe Sorren


Welcome to Joe Sorren’s world. Joe Sorren originally wanted to be an “art historian and conservationalist. Or a botanist. Or work with horses. It would be interesting to be behind the scenes in politics, at least for a while. Or maybe a studio musician, or invent games, or a … I would rather paint”. And what beautiful, surreal and rich paintings he creates. Joe Sorren currently lives in Arazona with his wife, daughter and son and is a drummer in a band called Sparkleface.
