Niki Pilkington Illustrator

I spend way too much time on Instagram these days. Luckily, I can justify this when I come across someone fabulous. Latest find of fabulousness is Niki Pilkington. She’s a Welsh illustrator based in New York, and she weaves together this unique style of illustrating with well-known quotes and sayings, which together take on another level of meaning and fresh, revived context. Familiar quotes become new again when coupled with a modern image – think tonal fashion illustration daubed with punchy fluoros and 3D mixed-media elements. You wish you could draw like this.

Niki’s ‘about’ bio says:

Her contemporary aesthetic adorns the walls of private collectors’ homes and galleries, as well as the pages of numerous books and magazines. Since graduating with a 1st class hons degree in 2007, she’s undertaken all kinds of varied commissions including window design/dressing, live drawing events, commercial work, clothing design, animation and workshops.

This is so much my kind of artist. Modern, varied, original.
