Delicately balanced, pattern-filled designs by Peter Judson
London-based illustrator Peter Judson plays with pattern and geometric forms to create striking artworks.
Peter Judson’s lively portfolio is filled with bright colours and gestural patterns. Since graduating from Kingston University in 2013 with a degree in Illustration and Animation, Peter has worked with an impressive list of clients as well as exhibiting his work around the globe. His striking style has resulted in commissions from the likes of Computer Arts, Thames & Hudson and Esquire to name but a few.
The pattern-filled interior illustrations are our top pick from Peter’s portfolio. These dreamy spaces are filled with inticately patterned textiles, geometric furniture, and eccentric architectural details. The amount of detail in each illustration along with the rainbow colour palette could easily make the artwork feel cluttered and unfocused. However, Peter’s clean approach and style keeps things from looking too complicated, leaving the eye to explore every nook and cranny of Peter’s candy coloured homes, without getting a headache.
Sadly Peter’s eccentric, geometric appartments are yet to become a reality. If they ever do though, we are moving in as soon as possible!
There’s always a unique and playful energy to Peter’s work. His interior feel fast-paced and exciteable. On the other hand, his more stripped back artworks, which include fewer forms, play gently with the idea of gravity. When constructing these more minimal designs, Peter performs a delicate balancing act. One wrong move and it feels the whole thing could conceptually fall to pieces.
Whether it’s working out geometric forms in real life or dreaming up his own eccentric home – Peter strikes the perfect visual balance.
It’s interesting to see Peter translating his work into 3D form. One particularly good example came when Peter was invited back to Kingston University for a collaborative garden project. Fellow Kingston graduates Nate Wyle, Is Bealey and Chester Holmes were also invited to get involved. The brief was to design and build a garden that would function as an inspiring retreat for current students studying on their old course. Together, the team created a serene and uplifting garden filled with geometric pops of colour.
