The trend of hand illustrated plates


Most of the pop-up stores that I’ve visited during the past few weeks (or months) were selling at least one label of hand illustrated plates. Forget enrolling in a course on how to knit or how to carve. Learn to paint ceramics.

These designs are by Los platos de Pan, that I’ve discovered thanks to Cristina’s blog, My Little Pleaschhures. Loving them.

La Joven de las Perlas

Manuel Cabello is a young artist based in Madrid that creates these amazing paintings based on iconic masterpieces with added references from contemporary popular culture elements. Beats headphones and Chanel earrings on a Vermeer canvas, a noble lady from the XVII Century reading a X-Men comic book, or still-life paintings with Prada handbags. All the works are painted by Cabello himself using oil or watercolor. An impressive talent.
