Meet the Artists – Katie Ponder

Katie Ponders work occupies the sweet spot somewhere between Constructivism and Art Nouveau. Her bold, graphic compositions contain flourishes of natural forms and highly detailed features; emphasising the very real expressions behind the abstracted figures she creates. Often using an intuitive approach, Katie finds the image and composition as she’s making it, assembling textures and […]

Meet the Artists – Jesús Sotés

Jesús Sotés describes his process as “basically finding a diamond in the rock.” There is an attractive quality that must be extracted, through work, accident and constant review until it can be gleamed in his final illustrations — the dream-like imagery, the gritty texture that gives colour definition, the off kilter characters — so much […]
