We’re super excited to introduce the fantastic designer we're honored to collaborate with Al Wrath. Living between Auckland (New Zealand) and Sydney (Australia), the artist has had his hands on various projects including illustration, branding, advertising and art direction. Al is also very keen on experimenting with a range of beautiful easygoing and outdoor lifestyle crafts and this is the reason why we get in contact with him.
Hi Al. Tell us something about yourself!
I’m an illustrator and graphic designer living in Auckland, New Zealand. My wife Taz and I have two kids Mexico and Roman. I love to draw, surf logs and ride my bike.
Your illustrations look really awesome and lively. How do they take place your inspiration and style?
Well, I feel like I have been spending years trying to accomplish my own style. I am constantly inspired by other artists. But in recent times I have come to realise that what I do comes out of me. I am generally positive, happy and wanting to have fun. I feel those characteristics always seems to show in my artwork. Sometimes I feel like my artwork should be cooler, but there are people out there who genuinely love what I do.
Italy - Australia - New Zealand: a strange triangle. Why did you decide to collaborate with a little hancrafting studio on the other side of the world? And what do you think you may have in common?
I love collaboration. It doesn’t matter the size of the company or the level of their output. I love to work with like minded companies who I feel are on the same wavelength as myself.
Do you have any other future project with LASKO Lifestyle in mind?
I’d love to do more tees and a bracelet. But to be honest I’m actually up for anything!
