Our Favourite Artists and Illustrators Every Home Should Have On Their Walls

Filling a blank wall can be quite an intimidating prospect. Some of us want more than family photos or posters (we are not teenagers anymore) or can afford expensive art to hang on our walls. Luckily, with the dawn of Etsy and the emergence of art specialists like Art Snug who we work with regularly, it is possible to find affordable art and illustrations to fill your home. Space Shack have decided along with Elina from Art Snug to share our favourite artists and illustrators who are making an impact in homes right now.

Elina's Top Artists

CLARE HALIFAX

In the crowded world of botanical prints, Clare Halifax's work stands out by a mile! Composition, colour choice and her signature pattern-based style come together in beautiful hand-crafted screen prints. Her 'A Piece Of Swiss Cheese' was even featured on Elle Decoration cover earlier this year!
 
ANDREW J MILLAR

You won’t have seen anything like Andrew's gold Polaroid collages before. While tiny (limited to the actual size of a Polaroid film), they make a huge impact! They can win over even the most outspoken gold non-lovers. Be warned, they are contagious, and you won’t be able to stop at only one of these gold beauties.
 
LAUREN MORTIMER

There is something discretely humorous yet timelessly beautiful about Lauren's hand-drawn pencil illustrations. All her illustrations have the power to stand on their own or would also work perfectly as a set or two or three.
 
JAYSON LILLEY

Jayson's bold minimalist screen prints of London's iconic landmarks have become icons in their own right. If you love London and are looking to add a bit of colour to your home, look no further!

JON BURGERMAN

We fell in love with Jon Burgerman's illustrations on our last project where he had created a giant wall illustration. Always eye-catching and guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and will brighten up any space however big or small. Burgerman had recently given talks at the Apple Store on illustration and using the Apple Pencil!

SEB LESTER

If you love calligraphy and the spoken word then you will adore Seb Lester. His beautiful letter writing is stunning and elegant. You may have seen his work appear on the new iPad Pro advert back in July. His Instagram videos showing his calligraphy in real-time are also worth a follow too!

KOZYNDAN

Kozue and Dan Kitchens are Los Angeles-based husband-and-wife illustrator team who are known for their whimsical take on nature and cityscapes. They particularly love their bunnies which feature in much of their artwork and have an almost children's book illustration feel to their wide and varied work.
