The Patternbank team are once again loving Lisa Krannichfeld’s mixed media artworks that incorporate watercolour and intense pattern plays. We featured Lisa back in 2015 but spotted some of her powerful new work recently.
Lisa was born and raised in Little Rock, AR in an interesting cultural mix of a Chinese family living in the American South. Her experiences growing up in these two intermixing cultures and their traditions have greatly influenced her work, which primarily focuses on the woman as its subject. Her expressive portraits refute the traditional portrayal of women being passive subjects to gaze upon, evident in their disinterested, and at times defiant expressions. Breaking traditions further, Lisa often uses traditional Chinese ink and watercolour materials in a nontraditional uncontrolled, free-flowing way often mixed with unconventional materials. See more of her stunning work on her website lisakrannichfeld.com or check out her work at The Other Art Fair in Los Angeles March 15-18.

Slava_Fokk_Illustration_art_pattern_trends_surreal_10

These beautifully opulent illustrations are the work of Russian painter Slava Fokk. Patternbank are loving the elegant rich subject matter that has a slight art deco look to the mood and styling. Slava Fokk was born in 1976 in Krasnodar, Southern Russia and is representative of the fourth generation in his dynasty of artists that have been conveying its art views and professional skills through decades. At the present moment Slava Fokk lives in Los-Angeles and works on his new paintings.

Patternbank love Kareem Iliya’s fashion illustrations created in watercolours, inks, pastels and various textured papers. The simplicity in the silhouetted figure combined with soft lines and vibrant colour depict the beauty and grace of his subjects so well. Iliya originally from Beirut now works from New York where he continues to add to a growing portfolio of work and an impressive client list.
