Misato Suzuki

Misato Suzuki-1-Design Crush

 

Misato Suzuki was born in Japan and now resides in southern California. I think you can see elements of inspiration from both in each painting, whether it be the repetition of elements or the vibrant colors used.

Karin Haas

Karin Haas-1-Design Crush

 

New York City-based artist Karin Haas creates these paintings and pastels that remind me of the sweltering southwestern United States. To me the lines are indicative of the shimmery waves on hot pavement, the color palette like the landscape.

Margherita Morotti

Margherita Morotti-1-Design Crush

 

Italian illustrator Margherita Morotti works mainly with a mixture of indian ink, ecoline, gouache, and oil color when creating her powerful works of art. I can literally feel the angst and tension and everything else when looking at each piece.

Sergio Membrillas

Sergio Membrillas-1-Design Crush

 

Simplicity is underrated, and it would seem Valencia-based illustrator Sergio Membrillas would agree. Both his editorial pieces and posters are taken down to the bare minimum, letting our eyes decipher the simple shapes and bold colors for what they really are.
