4 Artists You Should Know: Diversity in Design

Celebrate the work of these extraordinary artists. Each with their own unique background, they draw inspiration from their culture and surroundings to create phenomenal designs.

Febin Raj

Our first artist is Febin Raj, an incredible talent currently living and working in Bangalore, India. Inspired by a love of nature and traditional art techniques, he creates exceptional digital illustrations of everyday landscapes.

See more in his portfolio and follow him on Instagram.

Lighthouse

I started my journey in graphic design. Since then, illustration is the main tool I use to express all my visuals.

I originally studied at the College of Fine Arts of Thrissur. At the time, I really liked watercolor techniques, so I made a bunch of landscapes in watercolor.

I love work that uses a lot of textures and colors. One day, far in the future—if I can retire, I want to be a watercolor artist. Artists like Gerhard Van Wyk inspire me.

Spirited Away

There is a wide range of inspiration behind my work. My personal artworks are generally a recollection of my life experiences and I use drawing as a way to deliver my train of thoughts.

Most of them are illustrated by hand with ink, Photoshop or Procreate on my iPad. My drawings are often inspired by the people around me or the emotions that are triggered from my surroundings.

NYC ACM SIGGRAPH Opening Animation

Overall, to me, art creation is a portal for me to escape reality, and it is a very therapeutic practice of visualizing my imagination. I would not be able to be myself without art.

Greek Muses as Cats

I’m inspired by nature and people—mostly kids. I recall the innocence and the true great amazement that I had as a child.

I believed—and I still do, in magic, and in the good you can find in the things that surround us. Everything seemed bigger and greater in my eyes as a child and I want to be able to hold onto that through my work.

Space Catto and Bounty Hunter

I look up to people who truly stick to their true self. I really admire Beatrix Potter as an illustrator. I love how she believed in herself and fought for her work.

For style I would say I love classical techniques such as watercolor or colored pencils, although I’m working on digital environments lately I try to keep the look and feel of paper techniques.
