Craig Redman and Karl Maier, make up the art collective Craig & Karl. Craig lives in New York and Karl lives in London and they work together daily to produce bold work that is filled with simple messages and executed in a thoughtful, often humorous way. They specialize in illustration and installation and their work is recognisable due to their colourful, pop art based works that have been seen in exhibitions worldwide. They are contributors to British Vogue’s Culture Edit and do their monthly take on a current popular event. They did their take on Bowie in line with the V&A’s Bowie retrospective, as well as taking on an illustration of the Queen of Pop music, Beyonce referencing her Mrs Carter Show as seen here. Not only do I like them because they run on my time zones, I like the idea of them collaborating from different different sides of the Atlantic, which means they can share their creative genius-ness with a wider audience. Smart thinking Craig & Karl!
