Berlin illustrator

... fluidity, shapes and movement ...

The whole world is connected through patterns. Understanding the meaning of a pattern and how it works makes us see how everything is part of this huge and interconnecting web. It helps us to establish a bond with our world based on harmony and creates a more emotional and spiritual link with nature. I have aimed to capture this in my series of hand drawn animal illustrations.” Julia Kisselmann, Berlin illustrator.

Julia Kisselmann is an illustrator and artist currently living in Berlin. Julia graduated from the University of Bedfordshire with a BA (hons) degree in Illustration. Whilst studying there, she started to develop her own illustration style that is mainly based on hand drawn techniques and patterns. Her nature inspired images are highly detailed and explore fluidity, shapes and movement in the environment.

The Berlin illustrator is currently working as a freelance Illustrator in her home studio, manly creating new products for her online shop. These include digital and handmade prints, cards, phone cases, t-shirts, tote bags, enamel pins and more.

She got commissioned to create book cover designs, large scale murals, is creating corporate designs for companies (Logos, flyers, posters, banners, websites) and is partaking in competitions online. Some of her designs won competitions at Threadless, Alltropical and Front Row Society.

In 2011, Julia showcased her project entitled ‘Transmutation’ at the ‘Bite: Artists making prints’ contemporary exhibition and the ‘D&AD New Blood Exhibition’ in London which reached a high response. ‘Transmutation’ is a series of 25 screen printed illustrations encased in a handmade box that studies nature and its whole interconnecting web. 

Julia is always willing to take on new challenges and approaches subjects with an open mind.
