Creative Showcase - The Seven Seas

The Seven Seas is a multi disciplinary artist based in Melbourne. He was never good at sport, loved Shaq and Jordan, and played a lot of playstation. He also once guessed how many jellybeans were in a jar, "from memory there were 97!" It wasn't until his later years in high school that he started to take an interest in art, making markings on surfaces in an attempt to turn them into 3D objects, something that he does to this day...

Paper Carnival

We are in love with this range of prints from Seventy Tree, created by London based illustrator Kerry Layton. Combining traditional pen and pencil drawings with computer illustration, Layton then produces prints, postcards, and homewares. Her love for geometrics, cheerful characters, and colour have seen her works travel far and wide all over the world.

Rocking Green Chicken

What isn't to love about this incredible Green Rocking Chicken by Spainish artist Jamie Hayon. Not only is it big, shiny, and incredibly detailed, but it also transports us to a world where anything is possible. The idea for this glossy lacquered piece came to Hayon in a dream, "The chicken, a rather unexplored shape, found its place amongst my green dreams. I wanted to portray this common bird as a sensational object by amplifying its characteristics and dimensions, turning it into a modern piece, one of great beauty and utility: a rocking chair."

Neon Walls

Henriëtte van’t Hoog’s large, brightly coloured art installations, use painted representations of simple shapes and three-dimensional structures to draw in the viewer. Always striving to create something new and unexpected, she often plays with perspective, combining both flat and three-dimensional objects and brings these to life with vibrant colours to create a truly unique spacial experience...

Welcome to Candyland

The great mind behind Pip & Pop, Tanya Schultz, spends her days living like a modern day Willy Wonka. She transports us to a world of rolling sugared hills and candy mountains, where brightly coloured neon balls grow from the sweet earth and turrets of dyed sugar glisten on the horizon...
