Viktor Hachmang

Viktor Hachmang is a designer and illustrator based in The Hague, The Netherlands. Though visually influenced by ’60s psychedelic posters and ’80s postmodern design, he takes his inspiration from a wide variety of sources and his work often alludes to famous artists and artworks. Central to his work is the illustrative imagery which focuses strongly on decorative details. The concept of collage is also apparent, as his portfolio is a deliberate hodgepodge of various eras in art history and different ways of image making. Hachmang combinines the banal and the beautiful in one image, often mixing intellectual and naive imagery of strict geometry with hand drawn forms. He also co-edits the blog theeyestheysee, an ongoing collection of artists, artworks and other sources of inspiration.

Francois Berthoud

Born in 1961, Francois Berthoud is a Swiss illustrator whose forms rise from texture and abstraction, and are often made by the reductive monotype process, and his work rides a line between pure illustration and fine art. He has worked for many years on staff for Conde Nast as well as on assignment for Vogue Italia, L’Uoo Vogue ,Vanity Fair, The NewYorker, Harper's Bazaar and The New York Times Magazine. He has also exhibited work in group and solo shows in Europe and the US.

Barbara Wojirsch

Barbara Wojirsch designed album covers for jazz/avant record label ECM through the late 1970's and early 1980's. Her hand drawn, handmade covers stood out at the time from the highly processed, highly stylized covers being published in rock and electronic music at the time, and their individuality stands the test of time.

Sonnenzimmer

Sonnenzimmer is the design team of Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi, who work out of their Chicago studio to create painterly, abstract screenprinted posters in a fine art capacity, but also are often commissioned for music posters and commercial applications. They have merged their backgrounds in typography, graphic design, printmaking and painting to make work that is at once textural and layered, sparse but warm.  

 

Daniel Egneus

Swedish illustrator Daniel Egneus's scratchy and loose watercolor illustrations have a dreamy (sometimes nightmarish) quality that have, at the same time, a vibrancy and movement all their own. He is the inventor of the style known as Quotidiano-Straordinario and his art reflects his belief in daily life and artmaking as a whole. His printed work has appeared in campaigns for Häagen-Dasz, BMW, Louis Vuitton, Nike, Pepsi and many more.

Julien Pachaud

Julien Pachaud is a French illustrator, currently living in Le Mans, France. Before becoming an illustrator, he was, by turns : an astrophysician, an international snooker player, a hypnotist and an esperanto teacher (!). His lighthearted collage based illustrations have a fanciful, retro look with a skew toward the fantastical and have earned a place in both  both editorial and advertising platforms. He is represented in the US by Colagene.

 

Nate Williams

Nate Williams is an illustrator with a love for hand lettering, whose work carries a truly vintage and whimsical feel. He is inspired by nature’s inventions, foreign cultures  and the questions children ask. He thinks the keys to creativity are curiosity, inspiration, play and discovery.

Jonas Wood at David Kordansky Gallery

March 31, 2012 — May 12, 2012

Opening Reception: March 31, 2012

1977 Born in Boston, Massachusetts  1999 BA Psychology, Hobart and William Smith Colleges 2002 MFA, Painting and Drawing, University of Washington

David Kordansky Gallery is proud to announce its first exhibition of new work by Jonas Wood. The show will open on March 31, 2012, and run through May 12. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, March 31 from 6:00 to 9:00pm.

Making use of sources that are often intimately connected to his own life, Wood nonetheless exemplifies a wide-ranging and expansive view of representational painting and drawing. His practice consists of both analytical and intuitive approaches to composition: domestic and studio interiors, portraits, and imaginary still lifes are rendered according to a keenly felt sense of color and line, and numerous perspectival viewpoints are often combined to form a scene.

Gary Taxali

Canadian illustrator Gary Taxali visually blends now with then. His style, inspired by vintage comics and advertising art, is repurposed with the goal of communicating the ironies and comical essence of popular culture. His work is at once alluring and endearing. Despite the vintage look, he is neither maudlin nor nostalgic. His imagery is rich in satiric verve.
