Illustrator Von's latest solo exhibition, Elsewhere, opens at KK Outlet in London next week. Elsewhere, is a collection of delicately beautiful drawings based on photographs shot by Dan Sully. Each portrait in the collection explores those fleeting moments where we involuntarily slip under and away from all of our surroundings, appearing to others absent and completely elsewhere.
"Based in London, Von studied illustration and animation at Kingston University and set up his own studio, HelloVon, in 2006. He's since produced work for Nike, Selfridges, Penguin, the New Yorker and the Paralympic Games and has exhibited fine art work in London, New York and Los Angeles, including the beautiful graphite and pencil series Animals and Semblance, a collection of portraits combining traditional and digital image-making techniques. For his latest exhibition, Elsewhere, Von has created another series of graphite and pencil drawings, this time depicting subjects who are lost in thought. The show includes both large and small-scale artworks and Von has collaborated with Non-Format, HORT, David Pearson and Darren Firth on a set of limited edition exhibition posters, available to buy on his website."
