    James Hines: Patterns (detail)

Happy repetitions and chance compositions from graphic illustrator, James Hines

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

James Hines is someone who strikes me as creating a world in his work that he’d quite happily live in. Bold, bright (mercilessly so) and full of the sort of geometric-happy iterations that recall 1960s Penguin poetry books or jazzy records. All in all, it’s a confident and delightfully aesthetic body of work that uses his innate talent for a pattern in collections of poster, surface and experimental drawn works. James’ portfolio = a very positive start to the day.
