Tile People – high quality art prints

Project Creator

Tile People are the creatures in the structures that surround us. They live in my bathroom or in the marble tiles of a hallway.
 
Everybody has sometimes seen shapes in the clouds. Tile People is something like that, finding shapes in the things that surround us. They materialise in form of high quality art prints and are the first part of a bigger project called aprilsnow.
 
The funding will cover the production of all art prints chosen in this campaign as well as setting up a professional web site and online store. All extra money raised with this campaign will go into further projects of aprilsnow.

More Tile People will be released once the online store is working properly.

Where Tile People come from

It all started in our bathroom. Since we moved into our flat there were figures in the floor tiles shouting out to me as if they wanted to be liberated. One day I started drawing them. The drawings turned into paintings and then into digital illustrations made on an iPad.
 
Tile People mostly appear in tiles on floors or walls. First you sense the outlines and decide which one you want to set free (usually there are more than one in a tile), but the colouring is what makes them come alive.

 

What to expect from the Tile People

 
All prints are signed and numbered; the number of copies is not limited. Every print is carefully produced by a professional lab specialized in high quality art prints. They usually work for professional photographers, artists and museums, using a technology that guarantees a durability of the colors for 100 years.
 
As a special Thank You, apart from the art print every Kickstarter backer will receive a postcard with a photo of the tile that led to the artwork and the motif story. Once the online store is set up there will be a survey to choose your motifs.
 
Backers can choose between three sizes:
 
Small: Image 13,5 x 18 cm (5,3 x 7 inches), including white margin: 23 x 23 cm (9 x 9 inches)
 
Medium: Image 20 x 26,6 cm (7,9 x 10,5 inches), including white margin: 30 x 40 cm (11,8 x 15,75 inches)
 
Large: Image 30 x 40 cm (11,8 x 15,75 inches), including white margin: 45 x 60 cm (17,7 x 23,6 inches)
 

 

Behind the Tile People: aprilsnow

Over the years of working as a graphic designer I created a series of private projects but never really got to put them into practice. Now is the time and all the extra money this campaign raises will go into creating these projects (see more here: www.aprilsnow.net).
