John Austen was an English illustrator inspired in his early days by the very stylish pen and ink work of Aubrey Beardsley. Though he soon left this style behind in favour of a more modern art deco approach, his illustrations for a 1922 edition of Shakespeare’s Hamlet are quite spectacular. Not surprisingly, Austen was a friend of Irish book illustrator Harry Clarke, whose incredible drawings for Edgar Allen Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination I intend to scan and upload here soon.
Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira’s incredible installations look like giant overgrown tumors or roots that are slowly taking over the spaces they inhabit breaking through doors, walls, floors, and ceilings. Created out of splintered and discarded plywood Oliveira’s creations look like three dimensional wooden patchwork quilts that are taking over every nook and cranny they can, never stopping to ask for permission or directions.(via collabcubed)
