Javier de Riba

Javier de Riba spray paints bright, geometric patterns on cement floors of public spaces.  The Barcelona-based designer and artist works with paints, stencils, roller brushes and volunteers from his workshop to create these beautiful tiled patterns. He says this about his work on Impakter:

“My interest for patterns comes from historical traditions. At the end of the 19th century, hydraulic mosaic factories began to appear in the Catalan countries. Many homes here, in Catalunya, feature this type of tile, and I have lived with them all my life. I wanted to revive this tradition, put it into light and on the street, with a modern touch.”

You can view more of his work on his website, Behance and Instagram.

Hiroyuki Yamada


Admiring these water-themed paintings of Japanese illustrator Hiroyuki Yamada.  A member of the Tokyo Illustrators Society he started his career in a design office and became a full-time illustrator in 1990.  His tools of trade are acrylic gouache, brush, easel, oil-based ballpoint pen, Mac, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.  Besides being a freelance illustrator the artist is also chairman of an illustration training course.

We like his work so much that we will probably feature this artist again.  Meanwhile you can view more of his designs on Tokyo Illustrators Society, Behance and Facebook.
