If his artwork is anything to go by, Job Boot looks like the kind of guy who created masterpieces from iron filings in his physics lessons and left his classmates awestruck with his powers of composition while they were still fiddling about with magnets and equations. His illustration uses combinations of tiny lines, dots and dashes alongside bright primary colours to create the vaguest suggestions of forms, which in turn are all the more effective for their minimalism. If it’s evidence you’re after, the Anglepoise lamp below should be all the proof you need; constructed from a series of thick lines and yellow blocks it’s like a mishmash of minimalist formations and Mondrian influences.
Job’s excellent work was spotted by Haw-Lin, whose curatorial blog places visually similar images side by side. We make no secret of our admiration for their utterly individual style, and this is just another example of their excellent eye for colour and form. Keep it up chaps!
