Inspired – Katie Jean Gilmour

I am super impressed by the magnetic power of the collages by the American artist Katie Jean Gilmour. I found her on Instagram through her official account, but she also opened one just for her paper experiments.

It looks like these are just a way for her to “maintain focus”, with the purpose to switch them in the future into paintings. I really enjoy the freshness of these works, especially because they suggest me a dark secret of some sort.

I hope to see more of her collage works, they are so inspiring!

Paintings by Jeroen Blok

Beautiful!

I love the sense of dark nostalgia behind these pieces.

The Dutch artist Jeroen Blok uses a neutral palette of beige, black and white colours, to realise dreamy portraits.  The solitary subjects of his paintings seems to come out from a quirky circus of some sort.

Inktober Challenge – 001

Yes!

The last month I have participated for the very first time to the Inktober Challenge. It has been fun and quite unusual, but I enjoyed it very much. I used a colour palette of just black and white, covering up vintage found photos and postcards. Because of the experimental nature of this project, I believe that the final result is quite interesting and weird.

Below the first batch of the illustrations realised for the challenge, tomorrow I will share the second and last batch!

Alex Senna – B&W Murales

Wow!

I am super happy to have discovered such an amazing talent. Alex Senna is an artist and illustrator from Sao Paulo.

His black and white murales are quite unusual but extremely eye catchy and beautifully crafted. I love the contrast between the messy city landscapes and its minimal and visually clean style.

Inspired – Antonio Occulto

Super inspired!

The Italian artist Antonio Occulto creates amazing minimal collages with a “dark”eye catchy look.

I was truly fascinated by his Anthology Project, composed by hundreds of collage works realised just using paper cuts, black acrylic and coffee.

 

Inspired – Louis Reith

So Inspiring!

I love the minimal style of the collages by Louis Reith, a simple pleasure for the eyes. Geometric forms compositions “invade” black and white landscape pictures, all took from found book pages.
