Artist Feature #14: Simon Dara

Dara's illustration style is uniquely playful and direct. Whether looking at his floating creatures or at his more complex perspective drawings, there's always an intrinsic excitement to be felt, that pulsates with unconditional life force and urges us to dive into his world.

Simon lives and works in Paris.

Artist Feature #13: Chloe Piene

Chloe's arcane and transfixing drawing style has the power to melt away the boundaries standing between life and death. Feeble limbs woven from vividly pulsating lines, bony and fleshy in turn, express both control and frenzy.

Chloe has exhibited internationally throughout Europe and the United States. Her work is owned by institutions and private collections worldwide.

Artist Feature #12: Daehyun Kim

Through the interaction of his recurring, archetypal characters, Daehyun Kim's dreamlike illustrations touch the very core of the duality inherent in human relationships. His minimal monochrome style has the ability to summon moving metaphors from the deep beyond.

Also known as 'moonassi', Daehyun lives and works in Seoul and Vienna.
