discovered this week is Italian illustrator, Simone Rea. I can't seem to find too much information about the artist, but the few images that I have seen are really rich and mysterious. Animals and ghosts themes feature often and his use of colour is amazing! Most of the works are created using acrylic and collage.
So often i discover new and interesting artists. My usual process is to bookmark their page on my computer.
And before long I don't remember them.
Before I know it I'm admiring the works of someone else. So I thought that I would try to post a little more often when I do discover new and interesting people in the fields of art, design and craft. I'll keep the posts brief as I often found that i discover these artists when I am working so I don't want to get too sidetracked.
My first post is about American artist Jane Lackey. What struck me was the beautiful panoramic pieces on her site using mixed media on board. The layering effects and the negative and positive elements I find appealing. As well as her mapping of line and shape and the subtle, minimal colours used.
