The UK based artist illustrator Johanna Basford has created a beautiful series of ink tattoos on sculptures for her solo exhibition at Dundee Contemporary Arts. Some fine, thin and clean monochrome illustrations, deep black, which invade the white characters and objects, creating amazing contrast. Johanna Basford works primarily in ink and pencils, preferring the energy and feel of manual drawing over digital drawings that she deems too cold.

UK-based illustrator Johanna Basford transforms simple white surfaces into all kinds of captivating ink illustrations. Preferring pens and pencils to pixels, the artist says, “For me, computer generated graphics can feel cold and soulless whereas hand drawing captures a sense of energy and character which no pixel can ever replicate.” Every one of her illustration begins first as a pencil sketch, which she then further develops into the flora and fauna-inspired final designs.

In a recent exhibit at Dundee Contemporary Arts, Basford produced these two pieces entitled Inky Bodies and Sailing Ship. The collection features solid white sculptures covered with visually strong and invigorating hand-penned tattoos. Each drawing involves a complex series of interwoven lines and shapes that produce a sense of movement and lively energy. From a distance, the objects are covered in a gorgeous floral design but as viewers move closer, they will be pleasantly surprised by the incredible detail that is revealed. Basford says, “My delicate hand inked designs intend to charm and delight, inviting you to peer closer and discover the hidden intricacies.”

JOHANNA BASFORD, si descrive nel proprio sito come un illustratrice che preferisce inchiostro e matite ai pixel, crea intricate illustrazioni disegnate a mano, in prevelanza in bianco e nero.
Nata in Scozia confessa come la sua terra, ed in particolar modo il verde che circondava la sua terra natale abbia ispirato la gran parte delle sue creazioni.
Subito dopo essersi laureata al College of Art and Design di Dundee, aprii un piccolo studio dove iniziò il suo percorso artistico, scelta più che mai azzeccata visto che ora collabora con Brand di caratura mondiale per il re-design dei packaging come l’ Absolut Vodka, Starbucks o Smart. Qui vediamo la sua ultima creazione che mi fa venire voglia di comprare nuovi manichini da mettere in Store!!

Johanna Basford — шотландская художница, которая в наш компьютерный век предпочитает всем благам, которые могут предложить художнику-иллюстратору современные технологии — карандаш, и не более того. Запутанные рисунки создаются исключительно вручную и сохраняют при этом симметрию компьютерной графики. Предпочтение художница отдаёт растительным черно-белым орнаментам.

Johanna Basford, illustratrice basée au Royaume-Uni, utilise souvent de simples surfaces blanches pour y déposer ses illustrations captivantes. Préférant stylos et crayons aux pixels et ordinateurs, Johanna réalise pour une récente exposition au Dundee Contemporary Arts, trois oeuvres noircies de motifs à l’encre.

Puisant sa créativité dans la faune et la flore de son enfance, chaque dessin implique une série complexe de lignes et de formes entrelacées d’un design floral magnifique.
