More Art I like that I can’t Afford

By

17th Apr, 2013

I‘m not an art buff. I just like what I like and save it as my desktop background image or, if I’m lucky, find a €20 poster of it somewhere that I can stick on my wall. Right now, I’m liking the work of Craig and Karl, the guys behind those sorta-like-Leichtenstein portraits with all the dots (there’s all my art history education shining through).

Interestingly, Craig Redman and Karl Maier live in different parts of the world, Craig in New York and Karl in London, but collaborate daily to create their bold works filled with simple messages, thoughtfulness and humour. They’re in super high demand right now with mega clients like LVMH, Google, Nike, Apple, Vogue and The New York Times.

But anyhoo, back to the art…

It’s childlike, explain-it-like-I’m-five approach is what I love most I think. Those big black lines that make you want to do your own colouring in and the way they make it look so simple to capture the features of a face or an object.
