This week I’ve been hitting up Instagram to view some exciting pieces of work from a range of artists. Some older and more well known, somer newer and that you need to know about. So that’s why I’m here, to show you my top five Instagram ‘faves’. So let’s begin…
5. Bil Donovan
At number 5, we have Bil Donovan, an artist, fashion illustrator and educator. He creates work that is elegant, chic and timeless. He has a unique blend of style and spirit which has been utilised by the likes of Christian Dior, Mercedes Benz, Neiman Marcus and Yves Saint Laurent. He captures an essence of glamour and beauty through a pose or gesture throughout his fashion illustrations.
4. Krister Selin
In fourth there’s Krister Selin, an international integrated designer from Finland, currently based in London. He uses both traditional craftsmanship and modern technology to create his illustrations and designs, which has lead to some diverse projects, including digital design for international fashion houses, fashion illustrations for magazines and web design. His work is very feminine and sometimes delicate, its graceful and pleasant to view.
3. Lucie Birant
And in third here’s Lucie Birant, a freelance illustrator from Paris and has worked for a range of brands and magazines including Lancôme, Karl Marc John, Stylist and Kult Italy. She combines fashion, illustration and painting to create unique artwork which is beautifully clean, with its neat line work and composition, yet playful with bold colour choices and original concepts.
2. Abby Phillips
In second place we have Abby Phillips, from the US, she is a young mixed media artist, illustrator, writer and creative director. She is also the editor in chief of the alternative publication, SAD GIRL Magazine. Her mixed media art and illustrations use collage, photography and illustration to create her eye-popping images. Her work is killer, and very creative and the use of her mixed media, is shown through textures.
1. Krizia Banogon
Which means in first we have Krizia Banogon, she is a fashion illustrator from Filipino and based in Manila, Philippines. He style is realistic, and her illustrations are very fascinating. Detail is huge factor with the work she puts into the hair and the eyes. Most of the time she is looking at fashion and beauty images and she constantly experiments with her style as she doesn’t want to limit herself, but mainly uses graphite pencils, ink and a pen tablet. All of Krizia’s work is beautiful and I she experiments with such detailed illustrations by mixing in some colour for backgrounds or adding colour into accessories in both fashion and beauty illustrations.
