Stylish Stokey!

We have some colleagues amongst us who'd argue they're the most stylish in the CIA office but they don't really live in Stoke Newington anymore, so surely Sarah our finance guru is in the lead? Sorry Ben. 

 

Jitesh Patel's recent hand drawn piece mapped out the fashion and style of one of our favourite neighbourhood's for Metropolitan Magazine. We think the composition in this right on the money!

Nintendo!

What can’t Mario Wagner get his teeth stuck into? Nothing! Except perhaps an out of date toffee apple…Here is another great example of his capacity to employ collage and digital vectors to create a dynamic illustration bursting with energy. We’ve been transported into the surreal world of collaged 3D with this piece for Nintendo Super Metroid. - it’s time to undust your old console and go save the world!

Ricardo Cavolo x Bally

It’s hard to miss Ricardo Cavolo lately, he is everywhere.

His collaboration with the Bally collective (curated by the music producer Swizz Beatz) made his art - finally - wearable. An entire shoes & accessories collection of his designs are now available. Excited yet?

Fashun!

Fix up look sharp! Paul Oakley's sleek and well tailored figure is cutting edge with it's sharp graphic vectors. This piece was commissioned for a fashion book cover, unfortunately it didn't quite make the cut for print despite it's serious style. What can we say - that's fashion!

Bridges Through Time

It's great to see Jeremy Sancha working in strong structures and utilising the power of monochrome in his woodcuts. Illustrating one bridge that crosses over the canal a little way up the railway line that is next to CIA offices. The time difference in structure spans 35 years, the old bridge depicts classical pillars which has now been replaced by a modern design. A beautiful bit of local history there, thank you Jeremy.
