Patternbank discovered these amazing woodblock prints by artist, John Buck, who’s recently been a featured on Pinterest. Buck primarily a sculptor, started his career in the early 1970s and lives and works in Hawaii and Montana. These prints featuring bottled, botanical scenes in vivid colour and pieces in monochrome, showing images of human life and the world have particularly inspired us.

Patternbank have been tracking Michael Mew’s work for some time now and thought we’d share to those who have not seen his stunning visuals. We love the energy of Mew’s mixed collage paintings, that layer antique flea market finds with pictorial flower studies. Vintage type collides beautifully with hand drawn botanical florals.

Patternbank spotted these incredible transformed cardboard pieces by German street artist EVOL. These stencils statements show great attention to detail, depicting light and shadow that transforms surfaces of consumer packaging into fascinating, seemingly multi-dimensional pieces of art.
We can’t tell you much about Miroco Machiko apart from her being a very talented Japanese artist and illustrator. Nevertheless we just love her charming take on flora in these beautiful paintings. Her use of colour is just stunning and there’s even more delights on her website of a whole menagerie of whimsical animals to admire. Maybe she could design a range of prints based on these paintings, we’re sure they’d be snapped up.
Patternbank love the surrealist work of Swedish painter, illustrator and designer Max Walter Svanberg. His inspirations are mostly unknown but his work mainly features a woman’s body merged with elements of animals and fauna. They show a wonderful use of pattern, line, shape and texture with some touches of african and tribal art. He co-founded the artist group Imaginisterna in 1948 in Malmo, Sweden and it is here that a retrospective with 160 works will be shown to celebrate the 100 year jubilee of his birth.
