Brazil’s pride and joy – Cris Vector

Sao Paulo, Brazil

One of the artists that we are in awe of is Christano Siqueria (AKA Cris Vector or to his friends Cris). His background is in traditional drawing. As he crossed over into the world of Graphic design, Cris obtained a flare for more commercial applications of his talent. He has an impressive portfolio that features some powerful brands.

We were captivated by the tenderness of his style. He has a way of inserting life into the eyes of his portraits. take a moment to explore some of the images from his 2008 calendar (which happens to be a steal at only ($19.99).

ADVERTISING AND ART COLLIDE – BRANDED™

Toronto, Ontario

 

Adam Jarvis is a creative director. He has enjoyed a successful 14 year career building brands for some of the world’s most noticeable names. Adam is also a classically trained painter and illustrator. These two sides of his creative life have been in constant conflict for many years. The strategic side of his brain and the free spirited artistic side finally collided in the form of an art show entitled BRANDED™. The show consisted of 12 female vector portraits created entirely out of logos. See how many you can find.

“My business life has been focused on building brands – designingadvertisements that sell things.

My artistic life has primarily been about the female form – painting portraits of women as powerful and magical characters.

Shortly after the birth of my daughter Olivia this year, I stumbled upon a place in which the two collide.

My new collection BRANDED™ is a series of 12 portraits. 4 of which are multi-layerd between 5 sheets of glass. Each digitally created piece is comprised from a pool of thousands of logos collected across my career as a graphic designer.

The subjects are also brands themselves. Transformed into goddesses of capitalism.

As consumers, are we defined by the brands we buy?Collectively are we the sum of our purchases?

The answer is the question – BRANDED™

Dedicated to my wife Natalie, my daughter Olivia,

and the memory of Gerald Caracciolo (June 22, 1957 – May 25, 2006)”

– From the BRANDED™ gallery program by Adam Jarvis

In addition, Adam also composed small poems to accompany each of his pieces to give you a sense of personality for each. The idea was that if a customer would identify with a piece on a personal level, they would take her home. His instincts were correct. All of these prints sold out.

lyl_portrait_vectorvault1.jpg

We discovered Lyl in the myspace universe link. She has a strong following of fans that span the globe. Her sexy female characters have an anime-inspired look that really appeals to her generation. She was nice enough to answer her questions in both English and French as not to loose touch with her Parisian countrymen.Lyl is kind, smart and hard working. She draws inspiration from Parisian culture and tempers it with a playful mixture of design principles from around the world. Her work has been picking up speed and so we decided to catch her before she becomes a big star. Introducing: Lyl.—

Anchorpont:Tell us about yourself.

Lyl:The biography would be pretty short; I’m 26 years oldI use to draw since I was a kid but I think I never imagined I could make it my profession.Nobody in my family or friends was involved in any kind of artistic career, so when I was 18 I decided to start communication studies, it seemed more “reasonable” to everyone.I was ready to work as a press agent, but it appeared to me that I wouldn’t be happy doing anything else than drawing, so I just changed my mind.I’m a graduated graphic designer / illustrator since 2005, but I started to get really interested in street art and graffiti around 2002. From this moment, I kind of focused on pin-up characters, started to create stickers and to past it in the streets…Now, I’m working in Paris as a freelance illustrator, and spend my free time drawing sexy girls and looking for occasion to make them live.

La biographie sera courte, je n’ai que 26 ansJe dessine depuis que je sais tenir un crayon, mais je n’avais jamais imaginé que je pourrais un jour en faire ma profession.Personne dans ma famille ou mes amis n’évoluait dans une carrière artistique, alors à 18 ans, j’ai commencé des études de communication, ce qui semblait plus “raisonnable” à tout le monde.J’étais prête à travailler en tant qu’attachée de presse quand j’ai réalisé que je ne serais jamais heureuse si je ne dessinais pas, alors j’ai finalement changé d’avis.Je suis officiellement graphiste – illustratrice depuis 2005, mais j’ai commencé à m’intéresser à l’art de rue et au graffiti vers 2002. C’est à peu près à cette époque que je me suis concentrée sur les pin-up, j’ai commencé à réaliser des stickers et à les coller dans la rue…Maintenant, je travaille à Paris en tant qu’illustratrice freelance, et passe mon temps libre à dessiner mes sexy girls et à essayer de les faire vivre.
