Just last month we introduced you to Hunting for George when they unveiled their latest bedding range. And now, the clever duo have done it again, launching a cool clock collaboration with 12 creatives from a variety of mediums, including fine art, illustration, collage, street art, design, craft and photography.
The 12 artists are:
– Diana Ellinger: Australian painter living and working in Madrid — her work blurs the line between figuration and abstraction
– Peaches & Keen: Duo who work mainly with found elements from their garden, or plants they find on walks and excursions
– Laura Blythman: Her work often involves experiments with colour on paper, by cutting and pasting to layer and create a new artwork
– Kasper Ragulus: Artist based in Aireys Inlet, known for layering colour to create intricate paintings
– Pete Cromer: Designer, illustrator and happy art creator who has a beautiful style of painting that involves very simplistic shapes of either personalities, animals or people
– Clare Plueckhahn: Multi-talented photographer covering surfing, fashion and food
– Lucas Grogan: Melbourne artist known for his quirky art — all in the colour blue!
– Sarah Hankinson: Ah-mazing illustrator who adds pops of colour with watercolours, she has worked with major brands including Harpers Bazaar and Maybelline
– Hey Stubby: Street artist / designer / fashion label guy, Jack has an eccentric and somewhat comic-style approach to art
– Ellie Malin: Print media artist based in Melbourne, her colourful bold art works reflect a playful approach to image making using bright colours and form
– Esther Olsson: Abstract artist who loves colour and corners
Each artist was given a blank Hunting for George clock and an open brief — free to create a clock that resembles their individual signature style. The results are incredible, so much so that Hunting for George has not put a price on the clocks — instead they are going to auction to let the public decide.
You can bid on the 12 limited edition clocks until midnight Sunday 30 November 2015 at the Hunting for George website. The majority of the money will be going back to the artists, but a portion will also be given to Waverly Industries, a not-for-profit organisation that provides support and employment for people with disabilities.
