Kerascoët’s covers for Beauté with scans of the original art for the 2nd and 3rd tomes and the cover design for the first.
I think Kerascoët’s use of green ink is very interesting as a way to define lines and spaces meant for color while maintaining information within the image that black ink would otherwise compromise. It’s a smart method with using green to define the sky against the cloud and especially with the amount of creatures drawn heavily with black, the green prevents her from losing the shapes and figures to black and also from committing the all too common aural line around figure that would completely destroy the eerie mood of the third cover or the delicate detail of the comb going through black hair in the second.
This book looks great. Please come to America. I don’t care if it’s translated or not.
This book is coming out from NBM this Fall. All three books in one oversized volume, coming out around the same time as a larger collection of Miss Don’t Touch Me. It’s called “Beauty.”
While many street artists are known for signature tags or characters, Italian artist 2501′s work is instantly recognizable for an iconic pattern — an organic, zebra-like evolution of stripes that morph into various geometric forms, whether across massive walls or canvases.
Opening this Saturday, July 5th at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco, California is artist Erik Jones (Interviewed) very anticipated solo show, “Motion.” Featuring a multitude of brand new portraits in Jones’s signature, colorful style. Jones looks at his works as conceptual fashion design where the color becomes the clothing. As Erik put it when I interviewed him, “The viewer is capturing a random moment where the forms are consuming the figure. Not in an aggressive or obtrusive way but more like wearing clothes that are alive. Clothes that revere you, they breathe with you.”
