Berlin based Artist/ Illustrater Amrei Hofstätter is a self admitted Origami obsessive. The Japanese paper art is evident in her work, adding the charateristic shapes and dimension. The idea of misbalance and imperfection serves as inspiration, and her interest in Freud’s idea of the ‘uncanny’ and the human psyche, fuel her desire to create a feeling of irritation within the viewer, evoking something inside they were not yet aware of. Patternbank loved fashion designer Manish Arora’s heavily embellished, futuristic collection Amrei collaborated with in A/W 11/12. Visit her website to see more.
