In these colder months most of tend to hide away from colour, giving in to the monotones and gray scale that is winter dress style. Brooklyn based artist Michael Burk is the perfect antidote to this mentality. His blown out visuals come screaming off your screen, piercing that winter tunnel vision with intense graphics, and an intelligent and encapsulating colour palette.
The artist shot the collaboration between Sight Unseen x PrintAllOverMe for New York Design Week, which is not exactly renowned for this type of upbeat, vibrant and playful submission. The collaboration features both clothing and furniture against equally as graphically rich backgrounds.
Burk shot the collection against the repetitive, and artistically inspired graphics and iconography featured throughout the collection. An ode to the artists hands, the collection emphasizes the physical action of creation with tools, i.e the brush. Thick and passionate brush strokes work their way across the fabrics, amalgamated with basic symbols, and acidic flowers in bloom.
Burk also kept in line with the decadent exuberance of the clothing throughout the shoot, leaving virtually no white space to rest your eyes. The clothing silhouettes of the collaboration collection are relatively simple and androgynous though, paying homage to the rich and concentrated graphics that take the limelight.
