elise_wehle_paper_cuts_collage_pattern_trends_ethnic_art_09

With such a mix of creative expression and exploration happening at the moment, we love stumbling across new forms that twist old or found elements together. These amazing pattern enhanced paper cut art statements are the work of American artist Elise Wehle. Elise Wehle studied art at Brigham Young University in Utah, but it wasn’t until she took a break from school and lived in Spain for a year that she understood what type of art she wanted to create. Surrounded by the patterns that cover Andalucía, Wehle began using similar patterns within her own work. Yet, it was the Alhambra, a Moorish palace covered in intricate, hand carved patterns, that influenced Wehle the most. She states, “My mind can hardly comprehend how men achieved such intricacy with a simple chisel. Although paper is very different from stone, that’s what paper cutting is like for me. It’s tedious, time-intensive, and at times both mind-numbing as well as finger-numbing, but the evidence of my commitment and passion for my art imbues itself into each cut out shape.” See more of Elise Wehle’s stunning paper cut  artworks here.

patternbank_studio_featured_designer_soufiane_lafkih_10

Today Patternbank are featuring the work of print designer Soufiane Lafkih in our ongoing series highlighting our great designers here on the Patternbank Textile Print Design Studio. Soufiane has an extensive collection of designs including hand painted florals and digitally created geometrics. We asked Soufiane about his education and what inspires him, “I had a styliste and graphiste diploma from ESMOD school Paris, which I chose because of my passion and love for the fashion and clothing styles. My sources of inspiration are nature first, I love how the colours harmonise with each other. As for fashion, I follow street styles and the seasonal catwalk shows and the fashion designer who inspires me the most is Dirk Bikkembergs.  Check out more of Soufiane’s work here on her Patternbank Studio profile page.

seb_janiak_mimesis_an_adaptive_imitation_strategy_11

These strangely captivating images are the photomontage project of Paris based photographer Seb Janiak. Named Minessis, which is a Greek word for imitation. To create each artwork Janiak scours antique stores and taxidermist shops to find examples of wings which he then photographs at extremely high resolution. The pieces are digitally edited and pieced together into flower-like forms (a sort of meta mimic of a mimic) which are then output as chromogenic prints measuring nearly 6 feet square. The Patternbank team are loving the beautiful irregular textures and colour patterns created in these amazing art pieces. See more of Seb Janiak’s inspirational work here.
