Rinzen are an international collective of ‘graphic illustrators’. Originally from Queensland, Australia, members are now spread out all over the globe from Melbourne to Berlin to New York and back to Brisbane again. Although they all have varying styles, they take the unusual stance of preferring to work under the one banner, often coming together for group exhibitions such as their ‘Go Your Own Way’ exhibition at Barcelona’s Vallery Gallery. Rinzen recently launched a blog, following the crazee adventures of a character known as Darcel.
