The art project was initated by Melville Brand Design in Munich, Germany in 2015. They invite international artists to join the project and create a monography of their artwork — the authors define the content and the design. All books are available via print-on-demand (Lulu.com) in Black and White. This way no storage-costs incur and sustainable producton is ensured.
The works center around the fields of art, illustration, graphic design, photography and fashion. It’s a continuously growing collecton that features renowned artists as well as young up-and-coming talents.
After spending almost four years travelling the world, Ross is now back in the UK and has spent the last 12 months working on this whole new batch of work where he draws inspiration from the many places he has seen and the people he has met along the road. Photographs and memories combine to produce a pool of material from which this new series has emerged. It reflects on cultures and attitudes encountered as well as on the personal journey of discovery that travel induces. The transition from a nomadic lifestyle to a static existence runs like an underlying theme throughout the work. The next series is already in the making and will be continuing to draw from the vast source of material gathered around the globe.
