Illustrator Sachin Teng lives and works in New York City. His work has previously been featured on Hi-Fructose and his illustrations have been in mainstream magazines such as the New York Times, Wired Magazine, and THE NEW YORKER. He created a body of work which represents the influence of design on the subconscious mind. These mysterious works branch from his illustrative background into the fine art realm. Teng feels that first and foremost he is a designer and is interested in art as a method of visual communication. He knows first hand from his personal experiences in advertising how subliminal messages in marketing, illustration, and design can influence our choices and bleed into our everyday experiences.
All Visual Arts in London will be debuting their summer show on June 21 featuring three international artists with an inclination towards magical realism: Julie Heffernan, Haruko Maeda and Dolly Thompsett. While the three artists paint in detail-oriented styles that utilize soft colors and nature imagery, their conceptual foundations set them apart. Heffernan hearkens back to the Baroque with her allegorical paintings, while Maeda poses questions about death and spirituality and Dolly Thompsett constructs airy, atmospheric landscapes. Take a look at some of the work in the show below and see the exhibition June 21 through August 3.
