A very warm welcome to Olivier Kugler

We are thrilled to announce that the hugely talented Olivier Kugler has joined us here at Killington Arts. Olivier Kugler’s extraordinary body of work covers some of the most shocking refugee crises of our generation. His extensive reportage has brought clarity and understanding of the plight of Middle Eastern refugees in Europe and his book, ‘Escaping War and Waves’ won two prestigious design awards.  His visual journalism has taken him from Iraqi Kurdistan to Cairo, China, Laos and beyond.  Olivier’s work also extends into the more domestic side of life and he has created exquisite food illustrations, fiction covers and beautifully eloquent portraits.

Another powerful image by Owen Freeman

The drama in Owen Freeman’s illustration work is unmistakable and utilises all the best techniques of cinematography such as powerful lighting, unusual camera angles and reduced pallet to engage and describe emotion. This piece for AARP is no exception. Working across editorial, design, publishing and advertising fields, his work is as varied as it is commanding.

Cat O’Neil for the Wellcome Collection

Cat O’Neil has an extraordinary ability to illustrate complex or difficult ideas without losing the warmth and charm needed to engage. This recent image formed part of a series for the Wellcome Collection for their web-based ‘stories’ platform.  The brief was to create images based on writings by researcher and environmentalist, Nataly Allasi Canaleson. These powerful, multifarious texts needed an intellectual approach and careful image research. As ever, Cat was more than up to the challenge with these gorgeous cut-outs.
