4 Artists You Should Know: Diversity in Design

Celebrate
the work of these extraordinary artists. Each with their own unique
background, they draw inspiration from their culture and surroundings to
create phenomenal designs.

below.

Limas Palembang: The Traditional House of The Palembang

My
work is mostly about Indonesian culture,
in this case the culture of Palembang during the Indonesian colonial era. I focus on its
current architectures, clothing and hierarchy.

Colonial Times

For these
illustrations, the artists that influence me the most are Norman Rockwell,
and the airy paintings of Degas and Mikhail Zichy. I always look for a
style that is somehow timeless, so I took inspirations from mostly
the Romanticism era.

My will to learn and improve is what gives me the drive to

am mostly inspired by people, nature, and the beauty found in everyday
life.

Thank You

I look up to a new artist almost every week but I would definitely
say my biggest inspiration growing up as a young artist would be Audrey
Kawasaki. The way she draws girls in such a sensual and elegant way
is something I always strive for in my own paintings.

As for style, I take great interest in graphic
design and abstract art as well.

Hueston Branding and Design

Every project has a story
tell. It’s up to you as the designer to be receptive to that
message, whatever it is. That’s kind of the approach I’ve been taking
lately with all my projects.

Currently, I’m teamed up with other amazing talents of this collective
we call ‚The Design Room’ where the talent owns the rights to their
work and not the company.

Iron Horse Industries

There are so many artists that have given me inspiration
for many different reasons. I have to start things off with Tasso Art because if it wasn’t for his illustrations I would’ve never touched Illustrator at all. Next, Chris Do, founder of ‚Blind’, really
helped me to understand the business side of design.

There’s my friend
Jarmon Maxie aka King Maxie Animation, and lastly, this free-spirited artist that’s always keeping me
on my toes, the world knows her as Melody Nieves.

Infinity

My work explores themes of spirituality and femininity with
an African touch.

The inspiration behind my work is basically my life. I share a
little bit of my pain, scars, growth and visions through each of my pieces and hope that it inspires people.

The Dreamer

Being originally from Africa, I look up to African art and afro
futuristic art styles. I love patterns, colors and designs that represent
my roots.

I love the fact that
each person can see different things in one piece of art and relate to
it. Some artists I look up to are: Jean-Michel Basquiat, Frida Kahlo,
Gustav Klimt, and a New York based artist Kehinde Wiley. I love the energy behind their work, it truly inspires me.
