Maria-berrio-art-itsnicethat-list Work / Art Latin American artist Maria Berrio's collages explore the innate power of women

“Working with collage there is such a marvellous diversity of textures,” artist Maria Berrio enthuses. “Different sounds made as they are torn… I love the spreading of glue with sticky fingers, the stretching, the cutting. These collages are built layer by layer forming the topographical features upon the canvas.”

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.”

Karenlederer-art-itsnicethat-list Work / Art Karen Lederer's paintings reference everything from pets to politics

“I am endlessly interested in the tropes of still life painting,” artist Karen Lederer tells It’s Nice That. As a result of Karen’s object focused fascination, the artist has endlessly inspired us too with her paintings which present the ordinary, from pairs of Converse to bottled fizzy drinks, in a vivid style using a hyperreal colour palette.

Sondraperry-art-itsnicethat-list2 Work / Art Artist Sondra Perry uses avatars and animation to challenge representations of blackness

For her first European solo show Typhoon Coming On, American artist Sondra Perry has transformed the walls of the Serpentine Sackler Gallery into a seasick-inducing corridor of computer generated waves. Made using open-source software Ocean Modi, the purple hue references the programmes colour warning, which appears when there’s a problem with the simulation. Every so often the projections flick to the manipulated surface of J.M.W. Turner’s 1840 painting Slave Ship (Slavers Throwing Overboard the Dead and Dying, Typhoon Coming On), the canvas grossly deformed into an oily sludge.

Leslie-zhang-itsnicethat-list Work / Photography Leslie Zhang's sentimental series Little Flexes is a "beautiful glimpse of China"

“It’s all about portraying and celebrating the little romances in our daily life,” Shanghai-based photographer Leslie Zhang tells us of her approach to image-making. “At first I tried painting as a form of expression. I found photography was a much more direct approach.”

Folch-publication-list Work / Publication Folch studio and Cristina Ramos join forces for issue two of Dream magazine

Its latest triumph comes in the form of Dream, a biannual publication and digital platform dedicated to objects and the relationship they have with their owners.

Jeremypettis-illustration-itsnicethat-1 Work / Illustration Illustrator Jeremy Pettis on his curious happy-go-lucky characters

Jeremy Pettis’ illustrations are full of life; figures with strawberries for heads tan in the sun while sunglasses-wearing men animatedly play the flute. Working on Nike’s print and pattern team by day and illustrating cheery oddball characters by night, Jeremy leads a creative double life. The majority of the illustrator’s work is done with felt-tip pens, however recently Jeremy has started to dabble with iPad doodling, which we can safely say looks promising. “The majority of my drawings are subconscious elaborations on intriguing ideas and feelings that I take note of in my day-to-day thoughts,” Jeremy tells It’s Nice That.

Philipp-gallon-photography-itsnicethat-list Work / Photography Over several years, Philipp Gallon charts the social changes in the US through random encounters

The USA is a vast country, diverse in both its landscape and its people. Since the election of President Donald Trump in November 2016, the country’s politics have been thrust onto a world stage more than ever before and the social and political changes taking place are evident, even from afar. An Anthology of Common Conversation is a long-term project by German photographer, Philipp Gallon, that explores these changes, from a European perspective through years of work.

Hat_beardpress-georgerodriguez-publication-itsnicethat-03 Work / Publication Brian Roettinger designs the first retrospective of photographer George Rodriguez

Photographer George Rodriguez has led a double life behind the lens. Cited as one of the “great visual documentarians of Los Angeles and of the cultural complexities of Mexican-American life,” George’s photographs span student protests and high profile celebrity shots. Every subject matter is as necessary as the other in George’s work, a photographic stance celebrated in the first ever career retrospective of his work, Double Vision: The Photography of George Rodriguez, designed by Brian Roettinger and published by Los Angeles-based Hat & Beard Press.

Parallelpractice-pramen-graphicdesign-itsnicethat-list Work / Graphic Design Three new fab projects from the brilliant Parallel Practice

To put it simply, Prague-based design studio Parallel Practice is just really, really great. Every year, like clockwork, we check in with the studio’s Michal Landa and Jan Brož to see what they’re up to, and each time their website plays host to a bunch of projects somehow better than the already impressive ones that came before.

Dima-komarov-itsnicethat-list Work / Photography Photographer Dima Komarov captures a sense of freedom in Russian youth culture

“I want my models to be very natural in my pictures. I want them to not be afraid of themselves.” Dima Komarov tells It’s Nice That. The St Petersburg-based young photographer has gained a cult following on his Instagram account for his inclusive, at times subversive, images of the youth in his hometown. His images (still taken on a Canon 600d which his mum bought him) are drenched in a sense of freedom, of being on the edge of something new and exciting – to put it simply, they capture what it is to be young, free and open to the possibility of anything.

Cartography-publication-itsnicethat-18list Work / Publication Cartography travel magazine offers an alternative perspective to other publications of its genre

It may feel as though the magazine industry is brimming with travel journals; Suitcase, Cereal, Condé Nast Traveler. Yet no publication looks at travel as pragmatically and elegantly as English-Italian Cartography journal. Founded in 2016 by Paola Corini and Luca De Santis, each of the biannual magazine’s issues hone in on three trips to different parts of the world; the first lasts two weeks; the second eight days; the third is a quick five-day getaway. Made up mainly of expert documentary photography, the team curates the images alongside day-by-day itineraries and longer explorative essays. Their fourth issue took the team to Japan, South Dakota and Venice and includes long-form articles about Japanese fisherwomen who dive underwater by holding their breath for a living and Venice’s eerie unfamiliarity.

Marek-nedelka-publication-itsnicethat-list-alt Work / Publication Collaborative book What We Discovered imagines fictional worlds, their signage systems and artefacts

“In the last few months, I have been curious about linguistics and semiotics,” explains Prague-based designer Marek Nedelka. “I have been searching for the answers to questions about how languages and scripts shape our world.” Last time we spoke to Marek, it was his exhibition identities (made in conjunction with Ondřej Báchor) that took centre stage. This time, however, it was his diploma thesis What We Discovered: Language, Codes & Sign Systems that caught our eye.

Tea-uglow-bookshelf-itsnicethat-list Regulars / Bookshelf Google’s Tea Uglow’s Bookshelf includes “Second-wave cyberpunk” and “print wizardry”

As someone whose career involves developing potentials for the future of reading, including books which can be “owned” and “borrowed” through the use of blockchain technology; and a novel set inside Google’s street view, both as part of Editions at Play, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to find out which books from the past have impacted the brilliant Tea Uglow.

Nicer-tuesdays-april-launch-list Regulars / Nicer Tuesdays Tickets available now for the next Nicer Tuesdays

In a captivatingly simple aesthetic, the animation tells the story of a weary animated gif stuck in a loop on the internet, on the cusp of an existential crisis. The director will be explaining the ideas behind his comedic yet poignant premise, and sharing the processes he went through to make his geometric characters come to life.The idiosyncratic brushwork and hand-drawn typography of illustrator Marion Deuchars is instantly recognisable, and have charmed children and grown-ups alike in her many books. Recently, Marion has been both educating and inspirational in her books about the art world, particularly in Bob the Artist, which aims to teach kids about well-known artistic techniques while also encouraging individuality. She’ll be telling us more about the follow-up, Bob’s Blue Period, about feeling sad and expressing emotions through creativity.Max Siedentopf is a creative working in advertising, who on the side creates a myriad of brilliantly oddball and original personal projects. He’s behind that photography series of families with watermelon heads, for example, and is co-founder of Ordinary magazine, which celebrates mundane everyday objects from washing up sponges to plastic cutlery. Max will be speaking about some of his latest passion projects, including a sticker book and gif series Instructions for World Peace.Natalia Stuyk is a video and digital artist who creates surreal, warping imagery in vivid saturated colours. Her commercial work often sees her collaborate with fashion brands such as Kenzo, Nike and Stella McCartney, and musicians such as Basement Jaxx and Crystal Fighters, but this year has seen Natalia branch out from the digital to the physical space. She’ll be sharing more about this ongoing project, a new avenue for her work, and the intricate makings of her hypnotic visuals.
