Illustrator/Designer Week 10 – Lakwena

Blog, Illustrator/Designer of the week, Visual Communication

Happy Easter! I forgot to upload this yesterday as it was Easter Sunday, so here yo go…

This weeks(last week) is Lakwena

She did a Hothouse talk a few weeks ago which I was unable to attend due to work, so I decided to look her up anyway and get to know her work a little.

The big wall murals are quite incredible, some I recognised from actually seeing them in real life, but I never knew who did them. The colours are obviously what make them, but also the perfectly painted type is a real standout, and creates a whole other, almost 3D dimension to the patterns. The whole aesthetic brings to mind post Nu-Rave culture and magazines such as Super Super, very fun, very modern, or post post modern I should say.
