Today we showcase the work of Belfast-based artist Vasare Nar, whose tribal art puts a new spin on ’80s motifs. Her blog, Vasare’s Visual Wonderland, highlights her amazing illustrations and photography. Not to mention, her designs can be purchased in the form of prints, stretched canvases, iPhone cases, laptop skins, tees and more through her Society6 shop!
Nar has taken traditional (and not-so-traditional) tribal patterns and put an undeniably modern twist on them, creating a whole new look for a new generation. Even”older” generations can appreciate these amazing works of art! Geometric shapes and bold colors take center stage in the creation below, titled VLIEëR:
Next we see another geometric masterpiece titled HELAKU, which means “full of sun” in the Navajo Indian language:
Need an iPhone case? Here are two of many tribal options! First we have the Aztec & Tweed Pattern with its pastels and stair-step angles:
Zigzags and lines are featured in hot pastels in the ELECTRIC TUNELS pattern:
If you want to wear these awesome works of art, you’re in luck. Vasare Nar offers a wide selection of T-shirts in an equally wide array of colors! Below we see GEOMETRIC MYSTIC CREATURE:
We end with a collaboration between Vasare Nar and artist Kris Tate. It’s called TWIN SHADOW, and words don’t do it justice! See for yourself!:
A special thanks to Vasare Nar for inspiring this post. It’s wonderful to see retro motifs given new life in such a unique way! Happy Monday!
