Hollis Brown Thornton is an artist based in Aiken whose work has been primarily focused on nostalgia, particularly that of the VHS tape. He says, “In many ways, they are pure nostalgia. Personally, and on a broader scale, they represent the outdated things that are still around, like ideas or beliefs that no longer serve their original purpose. The VHS tapes are a simple and playful way of looking at that larger idea of change, and how we often times have a hard time letting go of certain things.”
Zsalto is a Hungarian artist, living and working in California who just so happened to study molecular biology as well as art in Budapest. She’s both an artist and a cancer researcher, who is inspired by nature, botany, wildlife, folklore and literature. She says of her design: “My original design, called ‘Little Red Ridding Hood’, is a hand painted mandala pattern with botanical and folklore elements, inspired by the deep lush forests of the magical world of Grimm tales. I used delicate and detailed brushwork and symmetry, combined with fresh greens to recall lazy summer afternoons from my childhood.”
Casey Saccomanno is a print & surface designer currently living in Philadelphia currently working for Lilly Pulitzer and Threaded Earth brands. Inspired by colors/textures found in nature, Casey approaches her designs with a more handmade approach whether its drawing or watercolor. She says, “I just went to the garden and looked at all of these leafy plants and wanted to draw them all!!!! This is my moody version of a Tropical Iridescent hot-house floral. I wanted to created detailed florals set on a textured black background. This print was hand-drawn and painted with pencil and paint techniques.”
Galaxy Eyes is a visual artist based in São Paulo, Brazil who creates positive art inspired by music, sun-kissed beaches, wildflowers and blue skies. Galaxy Eyes explains this interesting technique: “After many experiments with marbling, I started using nail polish to get the results I wanted. I had never thought of using that type of paint, but after doing a couple of random tests, I really enjoyed it–and have been exploring the technique ever since. The ‘Gravity’ series was made out of enamel in many variations of blue and teal. I then used india ink for the splatter. I was inspired by the waves and the underwater world. I believe that the natural movement that comes with marbling better represents the cycles of nature that I wanted to portray. And I love the unexpected results that this kind of pattern delivers.”
Creating chilled out vibes and tropical art since 2015, Wacka creates bold, vibrant, edgy, nostalgic, and funny. He says, “‘Whoa’ Sunrise is all about pulling up to the favorite break point in SoCal, keeping the tunes blasting a little bit longer as we linger in the Jeep—no doors, no top—and just breathing in the salty air. The palm fronds wave at us a chilled out ‘yo’ with their weird looking hands and the smell of surf wax and sunscreen permeates. Endless summers forever.”
