Nattbarn

BY HANNAH GUSTAVSSON
@ VOL 40 ON JUN 13, 2013

Hannah Gustavsson is a young illustrator and graphic novelist who presents her degree project from the Konstfack school of arts and design. In her soft-spoken, emotionally loaded presentation she speaks of her central character; one who faces teenage problems of sexuality, fitting in, school, identity, family life and social classes. Undisputed in her talent as an artist, what surprised everyone was the intellect of the narrative of Nattbarn (Night Child), a story to which we can all relate to some degree. (in Swedish)

Carte di famiglia

BY VALENTINA FENOGLIO
@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

I want to realize some picture-postcards that show “historical” family scenes.

These drows are made on tellings and descriptions of caracters and environment, so them are personalized for a single family. As if we look at an old photo album, we could have a memory sketch album.

I work as architect in Genova.

In 2011 founded the graphic and photo project RetròScatto.

From 2006 since 2013 I have joined and worked with Linkinart, group founded with other architects.

I have attended at some art exhibitions and realized illustration for publishing and music cd.

International Art & Design Festival 2014

BY KRISTJANA S WILLIAMS
@ VOL 1 ON JUL 25, 2014

Icelandic born artist Kristjana S Williams studied graphic design and illustration at Central St Martins and quickly gained critical acclaim as Creative Director of Beyond the Valley for 8 years.

In 2012, Kristjana S Williams Studio began creating fne art pieces, art prints and furniture.

The studio’s latest project presented a one of a kind collaborative audio-scape print journey at the spectacular Shanghai Exhibition Centre. Flying spirits were draped in beautiful traditional Chinese silk robes printed with Kristjana’s signature intricate art works, the masks are incredibly delicate hand paper-cut sculptures which crown each creature. The intrigued masked spirits followed the audience intertwining around the bamboo forest with mystical allure. Amongst the atmospheric surroundings, the creatures enticed visitors into listening to their unique, individual sounds through suspended Momentum headphones by German audio company, Sennheiser.

Previously in 2011 Kristjana S Williams and Beyond the Valley presented an interactive print journey at the V&A during London Design Festival, a show inspired by an interest in the way new technologies can be used in interiors and fashion design.
The illustrations juxtapose strong graphic lines with intricate victorian engravings creating incredibly striking and unique art work. Comprising of very intricate collages of material that have been collected from victorian engravings, photographs taken, found objects and real leafs and twigs.

Inspiration lies heavily with layering nature upon nature and ‘the symmetry in all things living’ which stems from the artists childhood in Iceland. When growing up the artist found nature there stark and unforgiving. Never seeing trees or colourful butterfies or exotic fowers – everything seemed grey. Now in retrospect, feels the complete opposite as though the colours and landscape are like nowhere else in the world. Each piece created by the artist is it’s own universe of botanicals, atmosphere and animals, each born and grown from the things that have inspired her since being a child in Iceland.

Williams’ work has become well known throughout the industry, 2013 saw the studio Highly Commended for ‘Best Use of Colour’ at the Dulux Colour Awards. In 2014 Kristjana has already won a D&AD award, a New York Festivals Grand Prix & First Prize and lastly shortlisted for the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.

Venom Palette Illustrates for PKN Gothenburg

Kudos to PechaKucha Night Gothenburg for inspiring one of its past presenters, illustrator Daniel Johansson (aka Venom Palette), into producing the PKN GBG image seen above. Daniel has this to say on the piece: The image is a paraphrase on the last image of my own PechaKucha presentation which portrayed a tiger woman -- the only illustration my dad likes. This illustration is of a zebra woman (actually Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs who also modeled for the tiger woman illustration). The zebra pattern symbolize the beautiful multiplicity and uniqueness of PechaKucha and all the different presenters. The microphone represent the verbal part of presenting, and the camera (head) for the visual part. And everybody wears Converse shoes in Gothenburg!

PechaKucha Night Vol. 1 in Tegus

Greetings from Tegucigalpa, or we locals call it, Tegus! In 3 very short weeks we will be launching the first PechaKucha Night ever in our Central American country of Honduras. We have just revealed our amazing poster designed by the very talented designer Alicia Medina, a cool lady whose experience includes illustration, branding, and art direction among other things. The poster design is based on popular local handicrafts that are a symbol of Honduras - handpainted clay roosters in bright, happy colors.  During this first volume of PechaKucha Tegus we'll be sharing stories from chefs, yoginis, actors, film directors, artists, street artists and even beer brewers. It's bound to be a vibrant mix of ideas and interesting people on this warm summer night.  We'll keep you all posted on how our very first night goes. We're really excited and we think it'll be a total hit. Til next time!
