Hattie Stewart is an illustrator slash doodler whose work makes me feel happy and like I’m seeing Tom and Jerry in real life. Her illustration is so playful and unique and I really think she has a cool style.
I have some great news for you art lovers. A while back Lara Meintjes had an exhibition at Wolves that showcased her ‘peculiar creatures’ as she likes to call them, her quirky watercolor paintings of half animals and half humans. By the end of the show not one half animal/human was left hanging on the wall, they had all found homes because they were so super awesome.
Andy Rementer is an artist from the US, he is attracted to the past and loves hand made typography, vintage colors and flea market finds. I first saw his awesome hand-made and hand-painted wooden characters on Booooooom. You can change all the pieces around so you can create different characters or abstract sculptures, how cool?
Nina Torr is one of my all time, most favourite South African artists. I own a couple of her pieces and a few weeks ago I got to add to my collection. Nina had a solo exhibition called Again and Again, which consisted of a series of gouache paintings which came together to form a large cyclorama around the gallery – I have never seen a show like that before, it was so amazing.
The other day a lovely young lass by the name of Maria Magdalena sent myself and NJ a little parcel in the mail. Inside it was a beautiful limited edition print called ‘Alice’ from her Wander Collection. She drew it to represent the unconditional and overwhelmingly instant love that she felt for her baby niece that was born on 14 September 2014 – I think I can relate to that feeling.
Nina has a whole bunny collection going in her room, so this print fits right in perfectly and I couldn’t be more pleased with it, it’s whimsical and detailed and so pretty and it makes for such a nice piece in her room.
The Super Neat Exhibition by Paper Snap started at Wolves last week Friday and it got such an awesome response. All the prints are super nice and so affordable, so I thought I would post some pictures up of the work in case some of you want to order some online. The show only comes down in the middle of Jan BUT the guys who designed the stuff are printing orders as they come in, so that if you want to buy any as Christmas presents, you’ll be able to collect them before Wolves closes for the holidays.
