In search for life experiences Felippe moved to London at the age of seventeen and never looked back. Graduated from University of East London – Fashion Design, his bold creations have marked him as one of the standout young designer from the graduate shows of 2012.
Felippe’s signature is the bold clash between unusual technique, print, texture and the strange love for pattern making.
The main goal with this work is to present the ability to create a thorny piece of surface design using straightforward mirrored images accomplished with the artists digital skills, his own illustrations and photographs. Felippe is establishing a conventional craft with a contemporary treatment using Photoshop, Illustrator and colours that clash. Expect a mind-blowing experience.Read full article
