Aleksandar Savic creates art for a wide range of clients around the world but we are particularly amazed at his collection of portraits. The illustrator, designer and art director is based in Belgrade, Serbia. He graduated from the Faculty of Art and Design, Graphic Design and Visual Communication Department, Belgrade. Since 2010 he has worked as a freelancer in the fields of graphic design and illustration applying geometric shapes and muted color schemes in many of his compositions.

Faith Humphrey Hill

Admiring these mixed media portraits created by Chicago-based artist Faith Humphrey Hill, who received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Masters in Arts Management from Columbia College.  The knit under layer of her work is manipulate by machine or by hand.  She then collages her original digital drawing with the knitted material.  In her artist statement she says this:

“Knit Prints celebrate our common thread. Combining the visual symbolism of knitting with the expressive color and rendering of digital drawing. They create a comfort and familiarity between viewer and subject though they may be strangers.”

The artist can be found on her website and on Instagram.

Rana Balca Ülker

Couldn’t find too much information on embroidery artist, Rana Balca Ülker, but we admired her work so much that we had to share. The Istanbul-based talent has a degree in fashion and textile art.  She combines her acrylic paintings with embroidery and conveys a portrait imbued with deep expression and feelings.  Flowers and foliage are repeated images in many of her paintings.  She also created a series that focuses very powerfully on the eyes.  

The artist can be followed on Facebook and on Instagram.
