The Patternbank team are loving street artist Pastel Fd, a painter and architect, working in Buenos Aires. Pastel uses the urban landscape and unloved derelict builds as creative canvas. Pastel Fd explains: “Far away of conventional architecture, I understand work on the street as a urban acupuncture. Modern cities are full of “Non-places” because of irregular and not inclusive masterplanning. So paintings can be a kickstart for those places, working on the local identity and not being another tool of social gentrification. I try to base my work on experiences. Considering the space where I get to create my work, it may be a city, a rural space, an open space or a closed space. At first trying to understand the conditions that the environment offers and not to impose an already established concept for the space. Working with symbolism like arrowheads and flora, the pieces begin a dialogue about the nature of man and his surroundings. The existential, real, pure and tragic, almost forgotten in modern society.” See more of his amazing urban transformations on his portfolio site.
The Patternbank team were in awe when we stumbled across the hypnotic and beautiful work of Betsy Walton. Betsy is a US Based illustrator and painter based in Portland Oregon. She explains “ My style is informed by a range of influences including Byzantine icon paintings, American folk art, geometric abstraction, and the work of many contemporary illustrators and painters. I work with a spontaneous approach and few expectations of specific results. I rarely sketch preliminary drawings before diving into a painting, in the belief that the image formed through the painting process itself will be rich, revealing, and vital.” See more of Betsy’s crafted painting on her portfolio site Morningcraft.

Patternbank love the sheer scale and intensity of John McAllister’s paintings from the collection “Tides must Exalt” which showed at the James Fuentes Gallery in New York in April 2014. The paintings depict both interior spaces and outdoor scenes where the colour hues have been turned right up to dazzle us with their luminosity in unreal pink and purple skies. McAllister takes everyday objects of flowers, fruits, dishes, chairs, tables and windows giving them an almost serene and dream like quality. Browse more of John McAllister’s paintings at artsy.net

Born in Moscow in 1957, Irina Zaytceva began her career as a book illustrator after completing an advanced degree at the prestigious Moscow Art Institute. After years in book illustration Irina became interested in sculpture and in particular she developed a desire to work with porcelain. Unbelievably these pieces are usually created without sketches and evolve during the creative process. Irina’s interest in history is evident in the characters she paints onto her ceramic bases, and after the final firing an application of gold lustre adds a magical Byzantine quality to these alluring masterpieces.
