This is our very first post and featured illustrator…puhhh who to choose? There are so much superb and talented illustrators out there. Well, we have chosen Malika Favre for our first feature. I just felt in love with her art and I think she is a great catch to make it in our first feature.

Here are some words from her website and handsome frank´s bio:

Malika Favre is a French artist based in London. Her bold, minimal style – often described as Pop Art meets OpArt – is a striking lesson in the use of positive/negative space and colour. Her unmistakable style has established her as one of the UK’s most sought after graphic artists.

Her work is incredibly popular, largely due to its instantly recognisable style, but also due to her incomparable skill at the art of simplifying down an image to its bear essentials and making it sing.

Malika concentrates on light: almost drawing with shadows.

Dark as that sounds, her work is actually some of the brightest out there in terms of use of colour. Want to get hot under the collar? Check out her infamous kama sutra typography project. Her clients include The New Yorker, Vogue, BAFTA, Sephora and Penguin Books, amongst many others.
