the Linocut Printed Art of Sophy Hollington | #ArtTuesday
You may already know or recognize Sophy Hollington’s work from The New Yorker or accompanying articles for The New York Times, or other outlets – I took notice of this illustration of hers accompanying the article ‘Don’t Believe the Algorithm‘ for The Wall Street Journal
Rad art! So I looked up her name and she’s done lots of other illustrations including a few with interesting tech- and futuristic imagery and overtones:
She’s also produced some beautiful tarot cards, and other images of mystic, supernatural, and surreal imagery:
Sophy Hollington is an illustrator and artist living in Brighton, UK.
Not being one to cut corners, most of her commercial work takes the form of relief prints, created using the lengthy process of lino-cutting. Her personal work tackles themes from meteoric folklore to mannerism, and she’s interested in wrangling the most out-there ideas to make them totally tangible.
