RETAIL-SNAPSHOT-TRAINERS-IN-PRINT-0002

Pattern and print is everywhere at the moment and in particular the trainer market who are joining forces with some of the most talented designers and artists around. From Liberty teaming up with brands like Nike and Vans to adorn trainers with classic Liberty patterns to more new contemporary prints. Also designers Eley Kishimoto and artists Zio Ziegler and Takashi Murakami have added their distinctive style to the Vans classic slip-on, clothing and bags.

A fairly new company Inkkas has adopted a novel way of choosing which trainers to put into production by crowdfunding their product first. This way they can see which styles are more popular before they commit to production. Not only that they take an ethical approach to production too, crafted with respect for the environment and the people who make them and for every product purchased they plant a tree. Print and pattern is not going away anytime soon and with new advances in technology it looks like it’s here to stay. Patternbank would like to think this is the begins of a pattern take over!

01-Sarah-Illenbergher-Dracaena-surculosa

Berlin illustrator and photographer Sarah Illenberger turned a recent six-week trip to Porto, Portugal into an extended work vacation using the tropical inspiration around her to create these vibrant images in a new series called Wonderplants. Armed with the basics of stickers and tape from local stationery and hardware stores Illenberger set to work to transform leaves from local botanical gardens. The results are beyond tropical, vivid colours contrast with more muted backgrounds, where beautiful shadows form in contrast to the foreground. Check out her online store for prints and unusual objects.

Jason_Middlebrook_Painted _Wooden_Planks_02

Patternbank loves the work of Michigan born artist and sculptor Jason Middlebrook. His captivating geometric paintings on slices of tree trunk give the surreal effect of a contemporary, abstract grain. The artist says,”No matter what I paint on those planks, I have to take into account that the tree did so much more work than what I did. The tree lived for a hundred years, and it compressed all that time into the grain. Every time I do a plank painting, I’m trying to respect nature, but also create my own parking lot, my own highway. I think that’s what the planks are about, trying to draw attention to the tree, draw attention to the form, and then delicately make a statement with my hand. Because the tree is the narrative.” See Jason’s website here.

Chung_Im_Kim_Felted_Structures_And_Organic_Patterns_10

Theses textural and sculptural artworks are the creations of textile artist Chung Im Kim. Born in Korea, Chung relocated to Canada back in 1990, here she set up work in her Harbourfront Centre textile studio in Cooktown, Ontario. Chung likes to use the patterns in organic plant structures combined with the sturdy characteristics of felt to create her textural art works, Chung say’s, ‘Mother nature produces seemingly complex and yet ultimately ‘simple’ solutions to form living things, creating uniqueness and efficiency.  I hope to conjure a sense of the refined energy that nature demonstrates and the awesome ability of continuous renewal’. Visit Chung’s website to see how these pieces are created and check out her other projects.
