Travel Poster series
The main inspiration is bring together Africa and the world. The wonderful thing about architecture is that it was designed by someone using straight lines, right angles and perfect curves. So it naturally allows me to draw from those lines and infuse them with my own. My inspiration includes African tribal patterns, such as zulu, xhosa and sotho. Bright colours and high contrasts. Each building compliments its environment so I use that symbiosis when illustrating each surface.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This projects celebrates some of London and the world’s most icon buildings by reconstructing them using basic geometric shapes. Each building lends itself to a flow of triangles, squares and circles. I try to imaging the building beyond its grey appearance and try to highlight each carefully planned aspect. The shapes and colour inject new life into familiar shapes and make you see them in a new light. Each building has 3 unique colour versions. The aim is to present a poster for travel enthusiast that can be used to as interior artworks.
