Bruna Canepa is an illustrator, architect, writer for the music blog Suppaduppa and co-founder of Miniatura, a project she created with architect and artist Ciro Miguel in 2011. As an illustrator, Bruna is obsessed with exploring space related themes and objects, clearly evident in her various interpretations of rockets and satellites. Her drawings combine basic geometric shapes with few but effective colors to great effect.
Kenne Grégoire is a Dutch painter with several thematic areas in which he explores different approaches. The most prominent seems to be still life in which he uses a combination of isometric perspective and naturalistic rendering. This is contrasted with other still life subjects in which he takes a more straightforward approach.
There are other repeated themes, such as patterned backgrounds and figurative work that varies from naturalistic to stylized. In all of his work he demonstrates a refined control of texture and color, usually casting his subjects in muted light and emphasizing their textural characteristics.
Mary Iverson is an exquisite landscape painter with a razor-sharp contemporary edge. On the surface, we see activism, her collages and paintings warning us of a dystopic future existence. Mary’s prints and paintings resonate with data visualizations and information graphics, Modernist painting, and resurgences of photo-realistic and illustrative painting as well.
Iverson’s shipping containers can be seen as metonymic stand-ins for a whole system of distribution for objects that we deal with every day. They are like scientific conceptual “black-boxes” which are put into place to sidestep our actual material understanding. We might see these containers on a dock or train and have only a vague sense of what they may contain or how those materials might be used. This parallels directly with the distribution of data on the net. The analog and digital worlds of things echo each other.
Los Angeles-based artist David Jien’s epic narrative is about the chronicles of an allegorical future detailing a battle in which human and anthropomorphic beings continue the struggle against a race of balloon-headed creatures and cold-blooded reptilian overlords who seek world domination.
Taking inspiration from the infinite possibilities of science fiction, the isometric perspective and narrative geography of Nintendo and Chinese scroll paintings, the eroticism of Japanese pillow books and the limitless transformations of graffiti, Jien has crafted these intensely detailed scenarios in colored pencil on paper.
Fabiola Morcillo is an architect and illustrator based in Chile. In 2014, she started her project called 1989, which includes her illustrations created using AutoCad. Morcillo mixes isometric views and penchant for Japanese architecture with a little pop culture and fantasies.
Various 90′s devices charmingly rendered in isometric views by Guillaume Kurkdjian, who also produces a Tumblr of weekly animated GIFs. Though they’re focused on very different subject matter, are executed in an entirely different medium, and are animated instead of static, their warm color palettes and understated presentation is just perfect.
