On The Draw

Mads Berg was commissioned by the Canary Islands Tourist board, alongside 6 other international artists, to create a series of posters based on one of the islands in the archipelago using his own experiences and artistic medium. His posters ooze balmy summer warmth and his layered textures expertly capture the rugged landscape of the island of El Hierro.

Aitch dreams of Romania

Another new artist to welcome into the fold this week! Aitch hails from Romania but lives a nomadic lifestyle, chasing new exhibitions, inspirations and adventures across Europe. Her work is a constantly evolving melting pot of Victorian curiosities and traditional Romanian folk art, but always has that warm feeling of brush and paper. Take a look at Aitch's portfolio here.
