Jp_King_Paper-Pusher_Graphics_&_Art_03

Jp King is a writer, designer and publisher from Toronto Canada, with a self confessed paper obsession. His love of paper manifests itself in collage and installation murals, and Jp also indulges his interest running ‘Paper Pusher’ an experimental Risograph print and design studio. This calendar is a result of one of his experiments, the combination of fluorescent pink ink with the simple lines of geometric shapes, creates an illusion of depth and dimension. Patternbank loves his use of half tones and the overlay of elementary shapes and lines creating stylish prints with a retro appeal. See more here.

Steven_Lowery_Hand_Drawn_Graphical_Noise_06

Patternbank are loving the work of artist Steven Lowery who is currently exhibiting in the Saatchi Gallery’s ‘Paper’ exhibition. This collection of drawings which he made between 2003 and 2004 are a clashing collection of quotations, advertising slogans, song lyrics and even a line from Tony Hancock’s suicide note: THINGS JUST WENT WRONG TOO MANY TIMES. Lowery attributes this creative psychedelic artwork to his “desperate dissatisfaction” with popular culture and the onslaught of “hate-fostering tabloids and listless reality TV”. This collision of words, pattern and colour can’t fail to arrest the eye and its content offers a banquet of food for thought.

Tadanori_Yokoo_Graphic_Posters_11

The legendary works of graphic artist Tadanori Yokoo have proved to be an inspiration for decades. With a current trend towards pop art, Yokoo’s posters offer a wealth of graphical inspiration and retro appeal. The rising sun motif which recurs throughout his body of work, was considered old-fashioned at the time, but has become emblematic of “Yokoo style” and an international symbol of Japanese pop art. Visit Yokoo’s website to see more of his more recent work and exhibitions.
