Maiko Matsue

Matsue-MaikoDiscovered her work at Japanese web shop, Gallery Vie. Wish I could quote the artist, Maiko Matsue, but the typical Japanese profile usually list the schools attended, awards won and exhibitions held. In any case I love the bold coloration and simple folk inspired shapes of her graphic illustrations.

Thedor Erkamps

Thedor
There are some artists whose work I keep revisiting. Calgary-based, Thedor Erkamps is one such artist. Originally from The Netherlands, Thedor designs and produces high quality, affordable fine art prints. His Etsy bio reads:  “Essentially intuitive, his work is fundamental, timeless and at times displays an approach that is unique and a dynamic combination of exactly defined diagrammatic structures stretched over a precise intellectual framework.”
