The art in words


I love bold artwork - and using words as art is a great way of making a statement. It's an in-your-face approach of getting a message across or just a fun way to decorate a wall. Whatever the motive, here are some ideas of how to use words (or text) as art.

Spacecraft


Stewart Russell relocated from London to Melbourne, Australia after perfecting his textile design and production skills in Sri Lanka, Scotland and London designing for the likes of Vivienne Westwood. At Spacecraft he and long term collaborator Donna O'Brien develop contemporary textile designs for use in Spacecraft's fashion line as well as linens and canvases. It is his back cloth paintings that have developed a cult following with a long waiting list of potential collectors. These back cloths are the result of the overprints and seepage of the day to day printing of designs. Serendipity produces eye catching artworks.

Hotel Chelsea


"The building sits on 23rd Street with the air of a great dame who finds herself in the midst of a party of her social inferiors but instead of complaining decides to join right in the fun."
--The New York Times

Andrew Martin

Andrew Martin, based out of London, has an incredible line of fabrics, not to mention furniture, home accessories and several books. I was in awe when I went through his diverse line of fabrics, and love that he uses images of rooms where the fabrics are used as opposed to simply displaying swatches.
