Born in Portugal and working out of Lisbon, Vilas-Boas works with an awesome team to create some of the most captivating websites, designs and graphics for some of the world’s biggest clients, including Nike, Carlsberg and Nokia to name a few.

His influence generates an incredible mix of futuristic elements, clever juxtapositions, motion and infuses everything with an unearthly electricity that jolts everything to life in a really cool, surreal way. This techno-pop explosion is what keeps him on the cutting edge and the dynamic quality of his work is what attracts the biggest movers and shakers in the modern world.

Primarily inspired by the ocean, visual artist EOIN’s works usually revolve around the imagery and motion of vast bodies of water and the art of surfing, but is starting to cast a wider net to capture the vivid emotions evoked by the human eye juxtaposed against either urban, abandoned, or natural environments.

EOIN manages to combine the two worlds – that of the man-made and that of the natural environment – into a landscape that both illustrates creation and erosion. I really love the works that involve the eyes, due to the fact that they invite you to open yours and let the windows to the soul interact with the world that surrounds.

Inspired by a passion for music and the world of art, Taj Francis is a name to start looking out for. At only 22 years old, this Jamaican artist and illustrator has been honing his craft through traditional and digital means for “as long as he can remember”.  His mastery of pen, brush, ink and spray paint is really incredible and though he’s still in school at the Edna Manley College School of Arts, he’s already been sought after for advertising and has even started his own clothing line. His talent can only push onwards and upwards and I hope to see more of his work spread across the globe soon.

Check out more of his work – including his traditional pen and ink illustrations – via his website.
