Always a sucker for colorful collage, we love these pieces by Wales-based artist Laura Redburn. Drawing equally from nature, dreams and the past, Laura’s work blends innocence and playfulness perfectly.
Shanghai-based photographer Egill Bjarki’s series Flora is a wonderful reminder of the magic in the plant life around us. Working through a single night to capture the images, the series paints a beautifully textured portrait of light, color and shadow.
Vienna-based photographer Daniel Gebhart de Koekkoek has us craving spring with his wonderfully sunny series The World We Live In. His work is carefree and loving, capturing a certain innocence that seems especially honest.
Gebhart picked up photography is 2006 and has since achieved great success, interning at Magnum and picking up clients such as Vice and Vanity Fair. See another wonderful, if not colder series by Gebhart over at Feature Shoot.
VINTAGE INSECT ILLUSTRATIONS BY E.A. SÉGUY
E.A. Séguy is a somewhat mysterious artist, working in France in the early 1900s. From BibliOdyssey:
Séguy the artist is best remembered for a couple of series of prints he produced in the 1920s - ‘Papillons’ and ‘Insectes’ - both of which are featured above. The wonderfully lush and vibrant colours we see come from the multiple-stencil technique of pochoir printing, usually associated with the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements.
