These colourful, illustrative patterns are the work of Spanish visual artist Ana Montiel. Through her ongoing project ‘Visual Mantras’, Montiel explores pattern through repetitive drawing, reflection and mirroring. Geometrics and florals are delicately juxtaposed creating complex, intricate kaleidoscopic patterns. Hand drawn aesthetics are accentuated through the use of soft colour pencils and watercolours. A mixture of delicate pastels and rich primary brights, create a gorgeous summer colour palette which is full of energy. As well as textile patterns Ana Montiel also explores illustration, typography and graphics. See more of her work, and the ‘Visual Mantras’ series, at anamontiel.com

These interwoven stencilled patterns mixed with free-hand drawing are the inspiring paintings of artist Reed Danziger. San Francisco-based painter Danziger creates densely patterned paintings in a distinct  colour palette combining visual motifs from the man-made and natural worlds. Movement dominates Danziger’s works, with shooting bands of stripes and DNA-like strands flowing off the edges of the compositions – inspiring stuff.

We are really loving these collage works by Ophelia Chong. Using cut out slips of magazine papers she has created beautiful collages which really sing out in shape, colour and texture. Ophelia has worked for Raygun Magazine and David Carson. For more info http://opheliachong.org / Flickr

Huguette Caland born in Beirut in Lebanon in 1931 began painting at the age of 16 with an Italian tutor, Fernando Manetti. She studied art at the American University of Beirut and then resided in Paris for 17 years.
In 1987 she moved to Venice, California where she currently lives and works. Her paintings certainly show a love of colour and pattern and its not surprising that she worked as a fashion designer for Pierre Cardin. We love these unique and eye-catching paintings with there intricase for detail. For more info www.huguettecaland.com
