Hong Kong

Quirky and humorous, yet flawless in style, it’s safe to say we all admire Martin Haake’s tenacity. Martin loves playing with scale and perspective, and there is something very charming about it. This Hong Kong map is from his “City Atlas” book, can you spot the wishing tree?

To The Queen

We needed a King to wish Happy Birthday to a Queen. So we’ve found the King of British Pop Art, Sir Peter Blake, one of the most influential artists of our generation. The painter said he had been there for many of the Queen’s big occasions "I was in the crowds with my grandmother at her wedding to Philip, the victory parade after the war, and lots of royal events" (Interview from the Telegraph - 2012). 91 years old and 66 years of reign, Queen Elisabeth has ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history, becoming a respected figure across the globe. This portrait by Sir Peter Blake was commissioned to commemorate her Diamond Jubilee by the Radio Times back in 2012.

End of Days

Lou Beach’s collages could be confused with a scene from Salvador Dali’s paintings. A strong narrative and surrealist feeling that led Lou to create some of the most famous album covers such as Everybody by Madonna or Dude Ranch by Blink 182. In a completely different register, Lou is coming up with a solo exhibition in Jack Fischer Gallery in Los Angeles from April 7th. “I have heard it said that anyone can make a collage and that it is child’s play, but I find it difficult; each work is a laborious task of discovery and invention with numerous mistakes, false starts, delusions, distractions and dead ends before the picture and its meaning reveals itself. My intention is always to create something poetic, but inevitably end up with a cartoon or fairy tale. I work in chaos.”

Born Bad Records

Crazy, bold, psychedelic, surrealist, bizarre, eye catching…there are a lot of adjectives to qualify Elzo Durt’s work but we all agree to say that as mind-boggling as his collages are, we all love it! That’s probably why the record label Born Bad Records has been commissioning Elzo for years and even published a book of his best work. To celebrate their 10th anniversary, the indie-rock label has decided to pay homage to Elzo Durt, the mastermind behind their branded artwork. His combined reference points of Art Nouveau, underground culture and loud colour, creates truly inimitable illustrations.
