It seems a slightly late to be saying happy new year but we'll say it anyway. Happy New Year!
Although we've been quiet in terms of releases, we've actually been pretty busy behind the scenes, securing licenses and hanging out with cool artists over Zoom. We're super excited for what 2021 will bring for Moor-Art and you guys. We foresee a much more regular schedule with some BIG global licenses. Onto our releases for Friday 05 March...
Raid71 is the alter ego of illustrator Chris Thornley. Chris creates dynamic art with a retro-futurist illustration style and detailed line work. His expert understanding of graphic design alongside illustration has led to work for the likes of Xbox, Lego, Disney, Marvel and Ubisoft, picking up some prestigious awards along the way. Chris has exhibited his print work in group and solo shows all over the globe. This piece is a great example of how he utilises holofoil as an integral part of many of his prints.
We will be interviewing Chris over on Instagram Live, Friday 05 March at 17:00 GMT, one hour before the drop. Follow for the latest on our IG account.
Plus there's more to come from us and an artist at the top of his game. www.raid71.com
Alongside Chris, we introduce an artist on her way up with a quirky and off-kilter sci-fi painting by Nada Maktari. Presented as limited fine art prints.
Nada is a RIBA Part 1 Architectural Assistant and Artist based in London,UK. With experience within the field of architecture and design, Nada is fascinated by multiple mediums of art and enjoys creating visuals inspired by dystopian and pop cultural themes. She aspires to continue experimenting with intuitive work to create eccentric worlds to dive into.
Both prints will be available on our homepage at 18:00 GMT, Friday 05 March.
