Art + February 2006 + Hellovon
Hellovon was begun half way into 2005 and has since risen to a warm reception across the world. Run by 25 year old London based illustrator Von, clients to date include Oglivy and Mather, Dazed and Confused and Esquire among many other magazines from both the UK and US.
His work draws strongly from the world of fashion, music and design to create sensitive but striking illustrations. Primarily grounded in traditional drawing and painting techniques the artwork is then executed digitally introducing random textures and found imagery.
Along the way Hellovon has spawned a sister company Vonhideki whose aim is to pit illustration against product design to come up with desirable and unique objects. Their work has been published in Icon, Vanity Fair, and Polished T among others.
Von exhibited pieces in the lounge at Margin in February 2006.
