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.

01-yellow-tailed-black-cockatoo-and-banksia-linocut-rachel-newling

Rachel Newling works with linocut to produce stunning artworks depicting some of Australia’s unique bird species and tropical flora and fauna. The Linocuts are hand printed on to handmade Japanese Washi paper and then hand coloured once the print has dried. Newling uses lightfast acrylic gouache paint and an artist’s proof print as her guide for the colours and tones applied to the print in the same edition, “there are always slight variations as my colouring is “painterly’ therefore each print in an edition is an individual.” Patternbank love her depiction of some wonderful looking Cockatoo’s alongside the native species of Australia. Newling grew up nr Padstow, Cornwall and attended an art school in London, before she made the big move to Australia.

01-katie-scott-wild-flower-botanicum

Patternbank are a big fan of Katie Scott’s work and with the release of her new book Botanicum next month we thought we’d share some of the illustrations with you, along with others from her book Animalium. Scott was also asked to create this animated “living wallpaper” for Publicis for their London office, taking her work to another level. “Together we created two seamlessly looping animations for display on an ultra-wide projector system and an LCD video wall. The animations evolve slowly over time, creating a subtle sense of movement with their fantastical botanical activity. This brings an intriguing feeling of change to the space in which they are displayed.” Truly beautiful and captivating work.

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.

01-chloe-sells

Patternbank love the vibrancy in Chloe Sells photography where her surroundings can be seen in her unique images. Chloe lives and works between London and Maun, Botswana. Photographing with large format cameras she then manipulates the image during the printing process. These experimental methods range from screens, overlays, open-weave fabrics and movements of the paper to create bold dramatic images. Patternbank love the tropical feel to her work highlighted in the African landscapes of her home.

01-sarah-arnett

Patternbank thought we’d share again the work of talented illustrator and print designer Sarah Arnett who produced some exciting work shown here, collaborating with Kim Hunt a creative director in the fashion industry. The British design studio Modern Love, define themselves as “digital settlers”, as applied to a person born and instructed in a non digital world, but who integrates the use of technologies in their work.

The duo ran a year long exhibition throughout 2015, Adventures Numeriques aimed to experiment the possible relations between traditional craft work and digital technologies in the fields of textiles and fashion. If you didn’t get a chance to visit you can still view their work on the website and photos from the exhibition here. Patternbank love their concept of embracing the digital technology available to us but still remembering the importance of craft and how it can enhance what we produce. We look forward to seeing future collaborations from this talented duo.
