Eltono & Nuria

Eltono & Nuria are Spanish artists that do incredibly simple yet detailed and smart line designs. The colouring is usually bright and lovely and the placement of the exterior pieces always give off an unobtrusive, yet concentrated 'fit.' The patterns only slightly deviate in style and form, staying relatively consistent, but always look new and refreshing in each piece. I'm thoroughly impressed by the the subtlety and design of their work and the 'canvas' use that compliments rather than distracts, making for an appropriateness that many artists lack in their street applications.
Easily one of my favorite artists right now. I've put a new emphasis on pattern-making lately because of these two.
