London based artist and illustrator Jess Wilson creates bright, bold, and tactile works of art. Always playing with a touch of humour, her colourful pieces incorporate a range of media - from crayons to paint, ink to paper - to create knowing naivety with high visual impact. ‘Manhattan Boroughs’ depicts a map of the New York City island, set against a graphic motif of sea-blue tiles.
Each of Manhattan’s boroughs has been differentiated, using busy patterns and quirky typefaces, in a multitude of bright, dazzling colours for a kaleidoscopic effect. Wilson has magically captured the characterful chaos of the city, summoning all of its charm through sheer sensitivity to graphic design, typography, and colour harmony.
