Joe Villion

Every year one of the highlights during the big annual exhibition at the Berlin University of the Arts is the exhibition of the illustration class. The class is supervised by Henning Wagenbreth, whose unique visual style has a big impact on every single work of his students. This year’s exhibition actually reminded that for months I already wanted to do a post about a young illustrator working under the pseudonym of Joe Villion, who was one of Wagenbreth’s students and graduaded in 2010 (as far as I remember). Besides doing some freelance work she is founder of Slalom Press, a small independent publishing studio in Berlin.

I’ve got words for you

Wasted Rita is a young graphic designer/illustrator from Portugal living and working in New Jersey.
Her words made me smile, her illustrations are not my cup of tea but I will show you one as a teaser that made me smile too:

 

Her work reminds me a bit of the work of Manon van Trier, someone who also contriubuted in the WORD ART exhibition of ShellVPower in Powerhouse in the past.

pictoplasma

A week ago I visited Pictoplasma in Berlin.
Went to a lot of galleries and so great and not so great stuff.
I discovered I am not that into street art, or cartoons. Which is not the best combination for a Pictoplasma visitor maybe.But nevertheless I will excite you with some things I think were great!

beautiful masks, and totems of Raymond Lemstra (Amsterdam based)


The etches and drawings of an animation in NikeStadium Gallery of the Black Heart Gang were also beautiful. (I did not make pictures of that of course…)
I did like how they added their drawings to an old photoalbum, as well.
I must admit: I like the drawings and etches better than the animations, but you can judge yourself  on their website:
