Check some of my favourite names, designers with unique views and lots of creativity!

1. Young & Battaglia

This young pair of industrial designers met during a university exchange and have worked together so far, creating whimsical pieces which cause both “surprise and delight” to the viewer.

Managing to mix old and new in their creations, Young & Battaglia design studio integrates opposites in funny ways. Their wall art shows, for example, baroque paintings with a contemporary touch or Venus de Milo surfing a large Japanese carp. I highly recommend getting to know their inspiring work!

2. Teil Duncan

PEARS ON PINK

Pears on pink, by Teil Duncan

With her bold colour palettes and bright sea landscapes, Teil Duncan’s work is full of life. The American based designer is inspired by light, movement and interesting colour combinations.

Her work balances realism and loose abstraction into lovely and charming paintings. I’m especially fond of her beach landscapes and flowing dresses. So cute!

 RASPBERRY SUMMERS

Beach scenes such as “Raspberry Summers” were the beginning of her painter career

3. Himitsuhana

J'ai Senti Le Vide

J'ai Senti Le Vide”: delicate and feminine portrait with a pre-Raphaelite touch by Himitsuhana

Himitsuhana is the nickname chosen by photographer Chiara Fersini to showcase her work. She is an artist known for her ability to translate feelings into images in beautiful surreal photos, mixing photography and digital painting techniques. Her inspirations come from both pre-Raphaelites painters and Liberty style artists, which are turned into unique photographs containing her inner world images, dreams, joys and fears. Showing the complexity of the human soul through photography is one of her goals in art.

 4. Mariana Baertl      

Mariana Baertl is a Peruvian artist based in Lima. She developed a unique fibre art technique using natural materials such as hand-dyed cotton, wool and silk organza fabric.

Her main inspirations are the ocean, its movements and colour, which she uses to create beautifully embroidered compositions with an authentic aesthetic. The pieces tell stories through textures, composition and colour combinations. There is a homey feeling to them, of warmness and connection to nature.

“Changing Tides” by Mariana Baertl is inspired by the ocean tides

 

 

Pastel colours and hand-dyed organic fibresfibers are her main visual traits

5. Lisa Congdon 

Lisa Congdon is such an incredible aAmerican artist. Having found her way into art later in life, she published several books, became an illustrator and fine artist with an unique hand in design, creating colourful illustrations, drawings and lettering.

Some of Lisa’s lovely work includes book covers, animal illustrations and floral compositions. She is such an inspiration!

6. Pedro Jarque

Pedro Jarque is a Peruvian photographer born in Lima. His series with animal portrait photography have won him several awards with his stunning images. Pedro Jarque photographs wild animals and edits his photos to create a neutral backdrop, enhancing their colours and movements. Through this technique, removing the original natural habitat and replacing it with a dark backdrop, an emotional layer of feeling is enhanced, diminishing the distance between humans and animals.

“Jellyfish Ballet”


“Jaguar yawn”

7. Agent X 

En Dedans Pirouette Avec Des Fleurs”: ballet and feminine flowers by Agent X

Agent X is an aAmerican artist currently based in Canada. His work is described as “Pop Art with thought,” a way of expressing feelings through digital collages and paintings. Mixing several artistic references, from surrealism to pop art, Agent X creates very unique contemporary pieces.

Some of his wall art resembles Rorschach inkblot psychological tests, and others make us think of Arcimboldo’s paintings. Very inspiring!

8. Angie McMonigal 

Award-winning fine art photographer, Angie McMonigal focuses her work in architecture details, creating fascinating abstract compositions. She explores different possibilities in angles, colour contrast and geometric details, bringing a meditative calm to the viewer.

I find it so interesting when a photographer such as Angie is able to find her own creative perspective and showcase bold details that otherwise would have been completely amiss. Her photographs have this power to present lines and textures from cityscapes in an innovative way. Architectural poetry at its best!
