Moody London

Moody London

As I am trying to be a better photographer, the more I realized how hard it is to go on a path of taking only Black & White pictures. I mean you’re disclosing yourself from so many colours and maybe it is easy to give it a try. But to me, it’s quite a challenge! We are taking a closer look at the work of Bimal Tailor who is a photographer based in London, UK. With what he called: Moody London, we are taken on a little ride around the streets of beautiful London through its tall buildings, reflections, landmarks and very cool perspectives. You should definitely check out his Instagram at @bimalt   More information: http://bimaltailor.co.uk.

The London West End Show by Radim Malinic

The West End Show' is an innovative gallery exhibition by Radim Malinic, a leading London graphic designer and illustrator. Malinic explores the magical and bustling part of the capital in a series of elaborately illustrated poster designs, bringing together classic old century design with the dazzling neon future of the 22nd century. 'I wanted to do something that was different, conceptual and intriguing - it’s a place that’s been very inspiring for me. It’s the heritage - the narrow streets, the buildings, the glitz and glamour. It’s got a heartbeat’, explains Malinic. He adds, ‘Once you look behind the history it’s got an enormous amount of legacy. People now take the area for its face value, it's a place to go shopping and getting annoyed by huge crowds at Leicester Square' explains Malinic. Through a combination of bold typography, illustration and poetry, each piece tells the delicate story of classic design over-shadowed by the limitless offerings of this exciting city. Malinic interprets his love for London by exploring the true characters of the real life musical that is London's West End. 'The West End Show' offers an inspiring touch of nostalgia for the frenetic capital resident. The show, cleverly titled West End show, presents ten posters, each dedicated to one West End area, such as Soho, Covent Garden and Fitzrovia. The ornate, bold designs capture the vibrancy of the area, with a healthy smattering of the gaudy neon and glittering lights that festoon its streets.The show is now open to public at Nancy Victor Gallery, London until March 2. Online store with limited edition prints and merchandise opens on March 3 For more information about 'The West End Show', you can visit theWestEndShow.co.uk , also have a look at Radim Malinic's work at BrandNu.co.uk and follow him on Twitter @brand_nu .

The Incredible Universe of Phlegm

Years ago, when I was starting out with illustration and stuff, most experienced artists told me that I should not worry about find a aesthetic and theme, that would simply come with time. Well, when it comes to street art a lot of artist mostly can get random about themes and change their aesthetic often. So I must say Phlegm really knows how to stick with what he do, creating a impressive universe not only on the wall, but also on his comics. For more information and pictures, please acess his Blog.

Colors and Great Architecture, this is Central St. Giles Court

The Central St. Giles Court is a building complex located in Camden, London. The main idea of the project is to break the concept of a simple office building and transform it into a multi usage complex with space to multiple activities. The project is a partnership among Renzo Piano and Fletcher Priest. The concept of bringing activities to this area was really nice, and to do that they combined restaurants, stores, offices and even residential spaces in one location. The buildings have colorful facades and form a beautiful contrast with London's grey landscape. Another interesting thing about this project was that the buildings were elevated in 6m to invite people to walk through it, to participate.

"typographic illustration/experiment that literally grew as I got rather carried away with layering and building the image." She Walks 5125 The year 2012 signals the conclusion of one of the most ancient predictions ever made. The Mayan's, an ancient and advanced civilisation of South America and experts in astronomy, predicted the end of the great cycle of ages in 2012. Random Got Beautiful Initially, this illustration was due to be a collaboration with another artist with the 'Beautiful' line theirs to interpret. Unfortunately they were unable to do so, thus I moved to finish the piece myself. The result though, was that I rushed the last line and I was entirely unhappy with the outcome. I have however, completely re-drawn the 3'rd line and shall comp it to the original image before the final version is ready to be screenprinted. You can see some of the development and detailing below and a preview of the new 3rd line is at the bottom. "the first typographic illustration exploring the inking technique." Slow Growth
