Dominique Pétrin's worlds are dizzying and hypnotising

Dominique Pétrin is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Montreal, Canada. Mainly working with print media and installation, Dominique is interested in creating spaces which convey different perceptions and altered states of conscience.

Florals, checkers, repetitive and tribal-like geometric designs in pastel hues, with pills, emojis and other popular culture iconography threaded through.

He’s inspired by colour balance and organisation of forms, as well as Scandinavian architecture and design, its “mathematical approach to modernity”. We...

We love Math Bass' super flat super perfect paintings

Math Bass is an artist who uses colour, geometry and flatness in a way that makes our little hearts soar. Looking at her work is like reading visual poetry, decoding the abstracted and ambiguous forms which skip playfully across her canvasses.

The Los Angeles based artist has been working at her instantly recognisable vernacular for a few years now, creating a library of sharp symbols which act as a visual language. Don’t think that you’ll get to the bottom of her message though, as she notes “the ambiguity of an object, its function and its...
