"Catastrophe” strikes French gallery with discovery that 60% of its collection is fake

Jillsenft-treemendous-art-itsnicethat-list Work / Art Jill Senft pairs her fascination with trees and puns in new book Treemendous

Alongside her practice of painting wobbling characters into the funniest and most absurd scenarios, Berlin-based artist Jill Senft has developed a fascination with trees. In particular, it’s when a cluster of trees are horticultured together in an arboretum that caught the painter’s eye, thinking she would collect the different trees together in some sort of book or zine, “which I quickly found boring as it already exists,” she says.

David-shrigley-itsnicethat-fully-coherent-plan-book-lies_list Work / Art David Shrigley: "Question Time is like watching people having an argument in a pub"

David Shrigley is venting. I’ve asked him about the inspiration behind his new book, Fully Coherent Plan for a New and Better Society, and in typically humble fashion his first answer is, “I dunno, the usual stuff.” But then, he admits there’s more to it. “It’s kind of a political book, but a sociological take on it. More of an explanation of society. It purports to make sense, but it doesn’t. Someone told me the other day it was profound… and I said, oh, ok good.” Obviously, the title is ironic, he clarifies, just one of the book’s many jabs at the state of the world’s current affairs. “If we had a fully coherent plan for a new and better society we would’ve put it into action long before now.”

Nioikehai16list Work / Art Prolific artist Miroco Machiko’s animal menagerie

With distorted bodies, crossed eyes and friendly expressions, Miroco Machiko’s portfolio of animal illustrations is exactly the kind of zoo we can get behind. The Osaka-born, Tokyo-based artist and illustrator has an incredible knack for capturing the magic of the animal kingdom, her expressive brushstrokes and rainbow palette transforming even the most mundane creatures – moths for example – into glorious beasts.

8 Work / Art Judit Kristensen on the pace and vulnerability of her pencil portraits

“I like bad drawers, or I like when there are vulnerable elements in a drawing,” says artist Judit Kristensen. From Umeå in the north of Sweden but currently based in Copenhagen, Judit has tried to hang on to some of the less-than-perfect technical details from when she first started working in this style two years ago. “ I guess time has made me a better draftsman – for better and for worse. I prefer empathetic over perfection, and you cant really be voluntarily bad to make a drawing vulnerable. I think that would have an opposite effect.”

K_l_printlist Work / Art Artist Jesse Draxler on finding clarity through greyscale

“When I began working exclusively in greyscale is when everything seemed to start to make sense,” says artist and illustrator Jesse Draxler of his dark, brooding style that combines collaged photography and painting, manifesting in large-scale paintings or commissioned illustrations. “It’s as if by freeing my mind from having to think about colour I had gained a greater clarity for everything else, like when someone loses a sense their other senses heighten to compensate.” Jesse suspects that his preference for a black and white palette is informed by the fact he’s colour blind, or “colour deficient” as he calls it. “Though I don’t put too much weight behind just that.”

Yasseen-faik-graphic-design-itsnicethat-alt-list Work / Graphic Design "People, places and feelings”: Yasseen Faik's design practice is inspired by the real world

“Art is somewhere I take a lot of inspiration from. My grandmother was a painter,” explains London-based designer Yasseen Faik. “Before I went to university, I was reading books about various periods of contemporary art, from which I found a lot of inspiration visually and in the way of creative thinking.” With movements such as modernism, post-modernism, abstract expressionism, surrealism, minimalism, pop art and hyperrealism emerging as firm interests from his childhood of painting, it was upon starting his foundation course at Camberwell College of Arts that Yasseen began to focus on graphic design.

List2 Work / Animation Paul Cabon confronts the inevitability of going bald via a surreal animated short

“Being a bald man sucks,” says French animator Paul Cabon in the intro to his animated film The Bald Future. “Knowing you’ll become one is worse.” A surreal and charming exploration of the inescapable combination of genes and time, the film takes you from Paul’s initial realisation of his eggheaded fate during a family meal consisting of entirely bald relatives, to outlandish fantasies of his thick-maned alter ego – a life that Paul will never lead. “I knew going bald was not such a serious problem,” Paul tells It’s Nice That, “yet it was really hard to get some distance and feel ok about it. I realised it could be interesting comedy material because of that – there was some tension behind it.”

Folder-studio-film-itsnicethat-alt-list Work / Film Folder Studio's interactive documentary K-Town '92 highlights our "desensitisation to societal trauma"

The 1992 Los Angeles riots were a series of riots, lootings and arsons that occurred from 29 April – 4 May. The unrest began after the acquittal of four officers from the Los Angeles Police Department who were involved in the brutal beating and arrest of African American taxi driver, Rodney King. The riots began after footage of the incident was broadcast and widely viewed on television resulting in the most destructive civil disturbance in America’s history, totalling in over a billion dollars of damage.

Hedvigjenning-nand-itsnicethat-photography-list Work / Photography Hedvig Jenning's dreamy fashion photography creates and captures individual characters

Soft, pastel hues permeate Swedish photographer Hedvig Jenning’s work, whether it’s a fashion shoot for The Guardian or a body positivity series for Odda magazine. Her images are romantic and dreamy, but maintain a lighthearted tone due to subtle, humorous details. Hedvig grew up in a small village in rural Sweden where she spent her days watching films, reading magazines and listening to music. Popular culture played a pivotal role in getting her interested in photography and pursuing a creative career.

Richard-turley-publication-itsnicethat-list Work / Publication Civilization by Richard Turley is a "half newspaper, half support group" about New York City

“I went to BJ Magazines on Varick Street at lunch – one of the better places to get magazines [in New York], but somewhere I’ve been going less and less,” recalls designer and art director, Richard Turley, of the day back in January he decided to create his latest project, Civilization. “I walked around and it felt different from how I remember and I was trying to work out why; then it occurred to me that the reason it felt different was because half of the shop was now crisps and corn snacks. Maybe this change had been happening for some time, but it felt quite shocking.”

50-years-of-choice-publication-itsnicethat-list-alt Work / Publication 50 Years of Choice: a publication of 50 posters by 50 women discussing abortion

“Back at university after summer, Leah [Fredrickson] and I spoke about her recent abortion,” explains graphic design student Millie Tyler. “We spoke for a long time about the fact that abortion isn’t discussed openly. There are still so many issues around reproductive rights and bodily autonomy; there is a massive stigma which we wanted to address.”

Dominiquevine-dreamsarchive-graphicdesign-itsnicethat-1list Work / Graphic Design Designer Dominique Vine's type-heavy visualisation of dreams

Melbourne-based graphic designer Dominique Vine has gravitated towards the arts for as long as she can recall. Her years of creatively-minded projects is evident; Dominique’s portfolio is full of confident colour combinations, strong typefaces and considered compositions. “When I finished school I actually decided to enrol in a journalism degree,” Dominique tells It’s Nice That. “I regretted my decision very quickly, deferred after a semester and applied to communication design at Monash University instead. It was definitely one of the best decisions I’ve made. I finished my course last year but my love for design continues to grow.”

Ladybeard-beauty-publication-itsnicethat Work / Publication Ladybeard magazine returns and reshapes the stories we tell about beauty

Feminist publication Ladybeard has returned with its third issue, unpacking the personal connotations as well as the wider implications of beauty. Following on from previous issues exploring sex and the mind, the third issue investigates how “we make and unmake ourselves in the image of what our culture finds beautiful,” through the work of over 100 contributors, each more fascinating than the last.

Wang-wei-itsnicethat-3 Work / Photography Wang Wei’s series Young Wild & Free captures the fresh energy of Beijing youth

Beijing-based photographer Wang Wei is best known for his extensive fashion editorial imagery, having racked up almost 25,000 followers on Instagram, but it is his personal series Young Wild & Free – shot entirely on 35mm analogue film – that truly caught our eye.

Burobumbum-undwasisstdudann-graphicdesign-itsnicethat-11listlist Work / Publication Büro Bum Bum designs a cheery cookbook to get families excited about veg

From ‘fitspo’ bloggers to the West’s worsening obesity crisis, the topic of healthy eating is increasingly discussed and debated in the global press. In order to educate families on the importance of a balanced diet, Berlin-based studio Büro Bum Bum has designed Felix Bork and Deniz Ficicioglu’s plant-based cookbook Und Was Isst Du Dann?. Having worked on an impressive range of projects in the past – including art direction, branding, editorial work, visual identities and illustration – the design studio has constructed a beautifully simple and engaging publication to get youngsters excited about veg.

Currently residing in east London, Ross Paul McEwan moved down south from his home town of Warrington seven years ago and has been working as a print designer, predominantly within the fashion industry, ever since. However, at the beginning of 2018, he started experimenting with more personal work and now boasts a portfolio packed full of expressive and emotive designs.

Oliviekeck-longdistancecaller-animation-itsnicethat-3list Work / Digital Artist Olivié Keck explores South African youth culture through a vibrant VR video

South African artist Olivié Keck’s latest project Long Distance Caller is a patchwork of digital tales about self-doubt, love, loss, regret and infatuation. The virtual reality video explores South African youth culture in the 21st century through the lens of the artist’s vibrant and dynamic aesthetic. “I relish loud colours, juxtaposing ideas, jumbled associations and subverting expectations. I tend to use a variety of mediums to estrange people from the commonplace narratives,” Olivié tells It’s Nice That.

Dropbox_poster_april_nicer_tuesdays_wang_soderstrom_klas_ernflo_itsnicethat_list Partnership / Dropbox: Monthly Poster Crossing dimensions: digital artists Wang & Söderström turn Klas Ernflo's illustrations into a 3D still life

For this month’s Dropbox poster collaboration, Copenhagen/Malmö-based digital artists Wang & Söderström worked with Swedish illustrator Klas Ernflo in a cross-dimensional merge of talent. Working via Dropbox Paper, Klas, Anny Wang and Tim Söderström found a way to blend their different approaches – Klas’ flat ink paintings and Wang & Söderström’s hyperreal 3D renders – in a truly unexpected way, via that most classic of artistic compositions, the still life. The poster will be given out to every Nicer Tuesdays attendee on 1 May.Given the brief to explore a loose theme of April, Anny and Tim thought of two events during the month – Easter and Siblings Day – with a unifying symbol, the egg. “We think the egg shape can really communicate these themes and fit our organic shape language,” they explained to Klas. Bouncing around ideas, they talked about “nest-like” compositions customised with patterns, bringing in a mixture of 2D and 3D abstract shapes from “both the Klas and the W&S universe,” and possibly mapping Klas’ illustrated patterns on to 3D eggs. For all these concepts, the duo shared tests, sketches, collages and swatches to show Klas how it could happen.Though the two studios work in very different ways, they found common ground in their use of shape – abstract, globular, amorphous forms that could visually tie to both their work, to make the final poster truly collaborative.

Studio-creme-animation-itsnicethat-list-alt Work / Animation Studio Creme's 3D scanned campaign film for Heresy is inspired by "mysticism and folklore"

We’ve seen our fair share of lookbooks and campaigns in our time. However, we’ve yet to see one that is completely fabricated in a fantasy 3D world, with models wearing the actual clothes 3D scanned and incorporated in that world. However, this is exactly what London-based Studio Creme has created for clothing brand Heresy’s S/S 2018 campaign.

Carolienniebling-thesausageofthefuture-publication-itsnicethat-4list Work / Publication Designer Carolien Niebling wants you to meet the meat we eat

“About four years ago, I read that we are eating too much meat and that we are doing irreversible harm to our planet. I wanted to approach this problem in a creative and openminded way that involved the industry’s butchers rather than propose alternatives,” Dutch graphic designer Carolien Niebling tells It’s Nice That. Carolien recently completed her master’s at ÉCAL – where she now works as a teaching assistant – and specialised in food-related design. Her latest publication, The Sausage of the Future, is a vibrant and immaculately curated publication that traces the various building blocks of sausage-making and explores the moistness, flavouring, glue and preservation of different types.
