With an incredible eye for detail and colour, Tokyo-born Natsko Seki is our favourite new illustrator. Her delightful designs contain illustration, photography and collage and have wonderful hidden humour- each one combining personal elements in lively public settings.
As her adopted home, London is a place very close to Natsko Seki's heart, and she has produced this beautiful and intricate design to celebrate the London 2012 Olympics. Available exclusively at Tate Online shop and Tate Britain, the print features newcomers to the London skyline such as The Olympic Stadium and The Shard, as well as such enduring London icons as a routemaster bus, St Paul's Cathedral and Tate Modern.
Born in 1976, Natsko grew up in Tokyo, studied illustration in Brighton, and made her way to London where she now works on an increasing number of worldwide commissions.
Inspired by architecture and fashion from different ages and cultures, Natsko enjoys applying her friends and family members into her illustrations by collaging photos from her old family albums and her own photographs. She believes they are the crucial part of her practice; that her timeless illustrations become personal and have a meaning.
