I absolutely love the work Aakash Nihalani does using such simple material as brightly colored tape. He re-shapes the urban landscape, either by emphasizing a certain perspective or creating an entirely new dimensions.

Some more great work by members of the Berlin-based artists collective KLUB7 – this time from their member DiskoRobot. His sharp, trippy and insanely meticulous drawing rendition of the alphabet is freakin mind-boggling. I actually used to find a bit of pride in all my crappy little triangular doodles on my school pages. Now I’m wondering if I’ll ever even try to draw a pyramid again.
Since I moved to Berlin I’ve been trying to find local artists and groups to feature, in order to feel more part of the community. In doing so I was contacted by an amazing artist & design collective named KLUB7.
Composed of 6 old friends, this group creates a huge range of different kinds of illustration and design – often making use of found materials, walls, boxes, all sorts of things. Their website has such an incredible amount of work to display, it comes across as an archive of great, colorful and certainly original artworks.
It’s hard to sum-up the work of 6 über-productive artists in one post – so we’ll be featuring them separately as time goes on, as well as documenting a visit to their studio sometime in April.
Polish illustrator/muralist and printmaker Wojciech Kołacz (a.k.a Otecki) is an accomplished multi-disciplinary artist. A little browse through his wonderful portfolio will give you a glimpse into a his fantastic world of strange creatures, beautiful patterns and earthy colors – all this communicated through murals, sculptures, prints and vinyl covers.
Don’t ask me how I missed this back in September (I guess the same way I miss all the other zillion awesome things that happen everyday on the web) – but I’m in complete awe at the crazy challenge Molly Crabapple set for herself (and totally owned).
So yeah back in September – after an insanely successful Kickstarter campaign – Molly locked herself in a hotel room for 5 days, and after plastering white paper all over the walls – she drew all over the place. For those 5 days Molley would have live-webcasts going for all her supporters to see her hard at work. The results are amazing, have a look at the 360 degree views by clicking on the images below (by Andras Frenyo)
Molly is now publishing a book on this crazy endeavour – check it out
