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
