Decorative Plates by Fredrik Andersson, BA Illustration Camberwell College of Art 2016


Swedish illustrative designer Fredrick Andersson, first discovered by Creative Review for their arse vases, finds the lighter side of life in comical and tongue-in-cheek designs with their work covering ceramics to their new comic book Boys Boys BoysFred explores with multiple mediums for their work and “loves working with his hands, finding screen-printing to have a slick feel that is able to recreate his line work in perfect detail and still manage to create small differences in every piece that makes them special in their own way; something you lose when using a digital printer” – MiAL. Focusing on queering art and challenging LGBT prejudices their work is defined by its impact through colour and Fred’s unique illustrative style.
