Patternbank love these rugs by CC-Tapis, innotative in their design and colour they push the limits in their experimentation. CC-Tapis was created in 2001 by the Maison Chamszadeh, known in France for more than 40 years for the quality of its traditional carpets. A substantial number of the designs are produced using only vegetable dyes with 1200 different colours available. Different finishings are also possible such as loop, embossing or different heights of pile. The rugs from the Signature Collection are designed by a new generation of artists and designers.

These crafted photo-real studies are the amazing work of Spanish illustrator Oriol Angrill Jorda. Whilst studying printmaking at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, Oriol explored a hugh variety of techniques including pastel, watercolours, colored pencil, white pencil on black textured paper, acrylics, graphite, charcoal and so on. These experimental explorations carved the way for his unique and mesmerizing style. Oriol’s recent mixed media works combine landscape visuals with portrait studies, creating a fresh take on the photo-real illustration trend we are tracking at the moment.
|Long ago when mobile phones were the size of houses and the closest thing to the internet was the loading screens on a zx spectrum. There was a kid who could almost always be found scribbling away. Conjuring up imagery of anything and everything from hyper advanced cars to magnificent beasts. That kid was Scott Balmer. After graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone college of Art & Design in Scotland, Balmer started life as a freelance illustrator and has never looked back since. Patternbank is digging Scott’s trippy graphic explorations in colour and pattern. With clients like Umbro, The Guardian, Howies and The New York Times magazine already tapping into his creative mindset, he’s definitely one to watch. See more of his illustration portfolio here.|
From a series titled ‘Secret Gardens’ these ghostly, almost other-wordly paintings reflect the spontaneity of nature and landscapes – as well as echoing traditional Korean figurative painting. An endless space is created by organic flowing structures and soft washes of primary colour floating and falling off the canvas. See Moon Beom’s amazing paintings for yourself, at the Saatchi Gallery – currently exhibiting in ‘Korean Eye’
