Kaleidoscope Eyes

Ana Montiel is a London-based, Spanish artist and designer whose mediums range from screen printing to ceramics, through surface design and collage.  I love, love, love, her use of color and the way she juxtaposes the sharpness of repetitive geometric shapes with the softness of pastel tones.  She creates mesmerizing patterns reminiscent of different scenes from nature, bringing a field of fresh wildflowers into your home without painting that tired old bouquet-of-flowers-in-a-white-vase picture we’ve all seen just a few too many times.  What makes her work even more intriguing?  Montiel’s designs are put through an intricate transfer process to produce wallpapers, curtains, shoes, clothing, furniture, even bicycles. Imagine riding down the street on a bike covered in that awesome geometric pattern?  Or eating  breakfast on a one of a kind pastel-colored placemat?  Swoooooon.
