Dan Hillier * blue

Dan Hillier has many prints for sale, both at his website and at the Sunday Upmarket on Brick Lane.
Much of his work is the manipulation of engravings, as below, but I'm particularly fond of this blue ink painting and his tendency for extending forms from the heads of people & animals.



The mixture of engraving is akin to Lhasa De Sela's album artwork for her record 'The Living Road'. I have been listening to her songs lately. She has an exquisite deep voice, a little like Nico, but her verse is quite different, terribly poetic and haunting. She sings in French and Spanish and English because she is half Mexican and lives in Canada.
