Fredrik Andersson (Freddelanka)Posted: November 11, 2016
Recent Illustration graduate and one of Creative Review’s top picks of 2016 graduates, Fredrik Andersson is a big inspiration to my work at the moment.
During his studies he was predominately producing vivid digital works that usually depict some sort of gay imagery or theme but since graduating has moved more and more into the realm of ceramics. His illustrations have become overtly erotic and his chosen medium has changed from the digital to glazes. He has great use of line a colour throughout his work and this has translated well onto the ceramic surface.
The plate is his latest exploration; Through zooming in and capturing cropped moments of a scene, the illustrations shown on his plates remain somewhat subversive to the unintended audience. Obviously his work is intended for the LGBT community but is still accessible to those accepting of it.
