- Full Description
This collects the work of 38 contemporary artists who utilize traditional illustration techniques along with embroidery, paper cutting, carving and collage to create pieces that standout for their low-tech charm. Collected from published works in magazines, posters, books, blogs and personal projects, Kaleidoscope includes interviews with six of the talented and enthusiastic artists, masters of the art of storytelling. Among our favorites here are Ero Lampinen, Junkyard Sam, Helena Perez Garcia and Andrea De Santis.
We illustrate all four of these artists here, to show the diversity of this collection. Each artist is represented by several works, along with a short biography. Additional artists include Whooli Chen, Alice Wellinger, Ruben Ireland, Lisk Feng, Jasu Hu, Shout, Taky Bannai, Jeannie Phan, Owen Gent and Tina Siuda.
Similar to a kaleidoscope, a good story employs reflection on the different elements to create a narrative or pattern that is captivating to the reader. The pressure is even more when the storyteller is a graphic artist and has a page or less in which to tell the tale with few or no words. The result relies heavily on the artist’s ability to turn the lens just right and capture the essentials of setting, characterization, mood, detail, motion and more to convey the intended meaning.
Elegently printed in full color.
