Patternbank recently discovered the beautiful work of Anisa Makhoul and thought we’d share some of her gorgeous illustrations. Anisa is the daughter of a Lebanese beekeeper, after graduating from Minneapolis College of Art and Design with a degree in Printmaking, she launched her own clothing label, Makool. Designing and screen printing clothing for her shop in Portland Oregon for 10 years, she received many accolades from publications such as Lucky Magazine, Nylon and Design Sponge.

Since then Anisa’s career has changed direction and she has moved to Amsterdam and started painting with gouache, influenced by her surroundings and travel in Europe. We asked her a few questions about what inspires her now and what upcoming projects she’s working on. 

Tell us about your work & Process – any exhibitions?

I’m currently working on three books, one of them is my first author illustrated book.  Those are ongoing projects and I still fit in editorial work whenever possible

What creatively inspires you?

Travel, traveling is an endless source of inspiration, whether locally or internationally, or just dreaming through the computer.  I’m always energized after exploring another culture.

Patternbank recently discovered the beautiful work of artist Tiffany Bozic and were interested to find out more about her work. Tiffany is a painter from Marin, California and has spent the majority of her life living with and observing the intricacies of nature. Her work on first glance is of detailed nature scenes but on closer inspection surreal metaphorical elements can be found, presenting a vision of life’s struggles and triumphs that are largely autobiographical. The subjects she paints are inspired both from extensive travels to wild places, and the research specimens at the California Academy of Sciences in San Franscisco. Over the years, Bozic has developed a complex process of masking and staining so the natural grain can collaborate with each composition using multiple layers of watered down acrylic paint on maple panels of wood. Check out her instagram here for updates on new work.

Can you tell us a bit about yourself and how you work?

I travel to remote corners of the world, often with teams of scientists, then return to my studio to create detailed acrylic paintings on maple panels. I also host the Unlocked Art Lab at the CA Academy of Sciences. I have been showing in NYC for the past 10 years, but for this next chapter I’m switching gears to show on the west coast for a number of group shows this summer. I currently have a series of new paintings exploring the five elements of nature celebrating native PNW plants and animals, at Talon Gallery in Portland, OR. We are also publishing another monograph of my paintings this year with Gingko Press.

What creatively inspires you?

I try to spend as much time as I can outdoors, travel, my relationships to myself and those I cherish.  In other words, I’m inspired by love & curiosity.

The Patternbank team were at the preview day of the Victoria & Albert’s new exhibition Fashioned from Nature last week. A great new exhibition that looks at how nature has influenced fashion design, textiles, manufacturing and pattern, throughout the last 400 years. Set over 2 floors, the first floor looks back in history and explores the evolution of how nature has impacted fashion. The upper floor is more of a present-day look at how new designers have used nature in the design process. It also showcases the environmental aspects of how designers now are looking at sustainability within fashion. We also picked up the book that accompanies the exhibition which is also worth a purchase here.
