Whether it’s an ode to your favourite blooms or the idea that a beautiful bunch in art form won’t wither away, florals are front and centre when it comes to wall art.
It’s no surprise that when Queensland-based stylist, photographer and creative director Kara Hynes launched her online print shop that we would find bloomin’ beautiful prints. Combining her love for styling and photography with her background in horticulture, it was only fitting that her first collection would be based around that.
Chances are you’ve probably already spotted one of Vicki Lee’s pieces of art in your Instagram feed over the last year or so. The art created by Vicki and her photographer partner, Ted O’Donnell can be found hanging on the walls of the who’s who in Bondi and beyond and it’s quite obvious why.
I’ve been following Melbourne artist, Adoni Astrinakis for a little bit longer than a year now and his Instagram is one of my favourites. Specialising in large scale portraiture with realistic aesthetic, when Adoni puts his brush to canvas, magic truly happens.
It’s finally poppy season again and so it was only natural that Brisbane’s favourite creative, Jasmine Dowling would get photographing to create mixed media prints. The best part about these blooms is that they don’t shed shells everywhere or die after a week!
You may be familiar with some of Dina Broadhurst’s work from when she exhibited one of her first solo shows earlier this year at Westfield Chermside. From April to June, the entire fashion precinct was transformed using photography and collage elements to create bespoke floor-to-ceiling artworks. Her website hosts a curated selection of works hand picked by Broadhurst herself including some of her best sellers.
Sydney florist, MyFlowerMan has teamed up with photographer Laura Goodall for an upcoming collaboration that has seen the pair create a series of 10 prints that focus on flowers that Kieran, the director of MyFlowerMan loves to work with. The collaboration arose from a shared appreciation of the ephemeral flower and an organic aesthetic. The prints are a way for residents that don’t live in Sydney to have their own lasting piece of the popular florist’s work. The works are now available online.
Experimenting with painting on the pages of Vogue, Jess Cochrane’s artistic style combines portrait photography and expressionism. The Sydney-based artist has exhibited a stand out solo exhibition at Brisbane Powerhouse and worked on collaborations with Groovin’ The Moo, The Ladies Network and The Lord Gladstone Hotel. A Jess Cochrane piece is at the top of my wish list.
