Chilly's Artist Series
Our Artist Series brings you unique signature styles from some of the world’s most exciting creatives. We’ll release new collabs throughout the year, so keep an eye out for the next drop.
Daren Thomas Magee
Our latest Artist Series colab is with Californian illustrator, Daren Thomas Magee. He says his inspiration comes from both the natural and supernatural worlds, and that his use of soft, muted colours allows his work to sit naturally within its surroundings. We think his designs ‘Another Day’ and ‘The Sea’ capture his signature style perfectly, bringing the subtle beauty of the natural world to our urban bottle.
For our May Artist Series, we’re joining forces with the award-winning NYC artist, Amber Vittoria. She’s renowned for her signature ribbons of colour and graphite line drawings, which represent the many nuances of womanhood, but in a refreshingly non-idealised way. For us, she’s created two unique designs that bring her ‘airy, colourful, whimsical and powerful’ style to life like never before. We love them both, but if we had to pick a favourite…
For our February Artist Series, we’re wandering into the vibrant imagination of British artist, Elliot Snowman. To say he has his own style is an understatement – Elliot’s work is striking in both colour and form, taking inspiration from Japanese woodblock prints, Korean tigers and artists such Paul Nash, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. We hope his designs, ‘Catfish’ and ‘Tiger’, awake your senses as much as they do ours!
December’s artist is whisking you off to Wildwood, New Jersey! Jacqueline Colley’s ‘Neon Nights’ and ‘Pastel Road Trip’ feature a cacophony of mid-century American architecture, with quirky motels, neon signs and (of course!) a pineapple bar. Grab yours before they're gone!
Introducing November’s featured artist, Mark Conlan. He’s a multi disciplined Illustrator from Dublin, currently living and working in Melbourne. Mark’s work is often character focussed, with rich colour palettes and a sense of whimsy and warmth.
His limited edition designs, aptly titled ‘Greek Dream’, are inspired by tales of Ancient Greece. Grab yours now!
For our October Artist Series, we bring you our spookiest design yet —‘Osseous Horde’. Alternative Aesthetics, known to some as Colin Kersley, is an illustrator based in Cardiff, UK. His style is playful and bold with clean lines and mostly monochrome.
Nothing says Halloween better than a bottle full of skulls. This creepy creation is limited edition, so get your claws on it now.
Dutch illustrator Bodil Jane works from a small mezzanine studio in Amsterdam. Her work is often female-focused, featuring women that are unapologetically themselves.
Besides illustrating, Bodil loves yoga and has been practising for 7 years now. Her favourite is the crow pose - a useful trick for hands-free papaya!
Michela Picchi is an Italian cross-disciplinary artist currently based in Berlin. Michela works with a distinctive, vibrant colour palette and explores pop, surrealist and psychedelic themes.
Whilst she works on everything from huge wall murals to 3D installations and tapestries, her style is instantly recognisable and we’re so excited to be able to include her in our Artist Series this month.
Alex Jenkins is a London-based illustrator and cartoonist who describes his work as ‘exploring satirical and critical subject matter through a distinctive and vivid style.’
We love the way Alex brings his unique vision to life through bizarre and vibrant characters and environments. You won’t find anything else quite like the bottles he’s created for us!
Tess Smith-Roberts is a London based illustrator who’s fairly new on the scene, having only graduated from Kingston University last year. In that short time she’s built up an impressive following and has worked on a number of editorial projects for a variety of international clients.
She approaches her work with humour, bold shapes, and a playful use of colour. Tess’s practice has a strong foundation in printmaking, and she has also produced one graphic novel (we've been informed that another might be in the pipeline!).
Marco Oggian is an Italian illustrator, designer and all round creative polymath originally from Northern Italy and currently living and working in La Coruña, Spain.
Marco’s creative style is a bit explosive. It’s like a vacuum cleaner that sucks in ideas and inspiration from all around him. Then one day it gets full and suddenly the vacuum bag bursts and there is dust and debris everywhere. Eventually the dust settles, and with a lot of patience he tidies everything up and organises it into a new creation.
Marco has just one artistic goal and that is to never stop creating.
