Armstrong, Gail

Gail Armstrong has been creating paper sculptures for over 20 years and her enthusiasm for the medium hasn’t waned one snip. She still wants every image she creates to be better than the last, and this approach has led to plenty of awards, including a Cannes Gold Lion for her Kleenex campaign. She finds inspiration in contemporary art and, not surprisingly, the huge Paperchase outlet on Tottenham Court Road in London.

Gail did her foundation course at Sheffield Polytechnic before gaining both a BA and Post Graduate Diploma in Graphic Design and Illustration at Glasgow School of Art.

Though finally rendered in pieces of paper that have been carefully cut and glued together, each image Gail creates begins as a series of drawings. As she explores the composition and various concepts, she focuses on creating something that has both style and substance to it. The result is usually a photograph of her artwork, which viewers love to see more than once, poring over the textures, colours and patterns in the final construction.

Graziano, Nazario

Nazario is an Italian freelance Illustrator, Graphic Designer and dad. His world is romantic, ironic, dreamy, with good background music. Something like… “a dive in the past with gore-tex lifesaver”. He takes inspiration from old books, illustrations for kids, sky, snow, rain and rainbows, his little princess Bianca, his wife, his cats, music, old-school skateboards, traditional tattoos, 80′s memories, 50′s sci-fi movies, typography and so much more that happens day by day in his life…

Arnett, Sarah

Sarah Arnett’s beautiful work is renowned for its colourful nature-inspired prints. Sarah’s love of gardening and botanical gardens is key to her work. Studying and interpreting flowers, foliage, land & skyscapes are the starting point of any project. Throughout her work you will find recurring tree motifs to delicate abstract patterns inspired by butterflies and tropical plants, a real visual treat. Sarah’s illustrations develop from the hand-drawn and are then digitally illustrated. Not only a fabulous illustrator and print designer, she also runs her own clothing label and makes beautiful dresses and printed textiles. What excites her the most, is colour, “It’s my real passion”.

Giles, Ben

Ben Giles was born in UK in 1992, and currently works as a freelance artist in Norwich. Ben Giles earned a BA in Fine Art at Kingston University. His work is defined by his handmade collages, utilising antique and vintage materials to create often colourful and detailed artworks. The collage often spills into other mediums such as sculpture, paint and illustration.

His work is inspired from many different things such as colour, nature, juxtaposition, children’s encyclopaedias, repetition, metamorphosis. Artistically speaking influences range from Bosch’s complex and surreal character filled landscapes, to the metamorphosing patterns of MC Escher. Artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Rousseau and Miro have defined the balancing of colour and the juggling of shape and composition over the years.

Ben has focused on working with commercial commissions for several years, such as magazine editorials, fashion labels and advertising campaigns. He has also exhibited his work around the world, held creative workshops and partaken in art residencies. His goal is to continue to work with a large variety of clients to explore the further possibilities of his work, while also sharing and exhibiting his creations to as many people as possible.

A wide variety of his clients include, Google, Apple, Hoegaarden, Rubicon, New York Times Magazine, Vice Magazine, Wall Street Journal, GQ, Elle, Stanford Design School, Bloomberg Businessweek, Galison Harpers Magazine and Jarrold’s Spring/Summer window displays.
