‘Closer To The Sun’ Series by Maria Flores
It’s a perspective introduction exploring the shapes, space and tones that pay tribute to Mayan and Aztec design.
The simplicity of the shapes,flat colours and dimensions reminds me of the moment when time stood still and I felt closest to the sun at the magical ek’balam ruins (Yucatán, Mexico).
Natasha Marie was born in British Columbia, Canada and grew up drawing rocket ships and planets in the margins of her notebooks. She was drawn to art making from an early age, crafting little paper sculptures inside the hollow of her wooden school desk and practicing pointillism instead of math. She graduated from the University of Alberta with a degree in Art Education and spent a few years teaching before setting into full time art-making. She came to Grand Image from Anthropologie where she spent her time designing and constructing everything from life sized paper polar bears to geodesic wood installations. Her art is influenced by a love of precision and order, and she works with meticulous detail. She works in watercolor, acrylic, mixed media as well as in three dimensional wood, canvas, metal, cardboard and paper.

From Great Heights
From Great Heights is a series of prints created using rich textures, pattern and tone. The series focus on abstract representations of Australia’s unique terrain, but also tap into the essence of the our wide open land and highlight its hidden beauty, from above.
Watercolour is hypnotic. The allure is multi-faceted, but it is the unique immediacy of the medium that we find most fascinating. Artists have to decide where you will place each brushstroke of colour and then let the ink, paper and surface do its magic. This series celebrates the beauty of watercolour and features neutral tones, warm textures and creative compositions.
Abstract Brush Stroke Prints
These evocative prints communicate a unique sense of drama through their use of layered inky blacks and expressive strokes. The contrast of black and white, against a textured natural background, will surely make a strong visual statement in any room.
Australia is home to more unique species than any other developed country on our planet, and this series draws inspiration from our iconic native wildlife. Designed in a modernist, mid-century style each print looks impressive as a single print, or perfect as a pair or trio. They feature neutral tones and warm textures and will surely add a sense of minimalistic style to any room.

About the Collection
The monochrome typography collection is exclusive to iinked, designed using simple retro principles of curves, vintage block printing accents and poster signature icon. Monochrome is a great way to balance any space and keep it neutral, its bold enough without taking away from other signature pieces around it. You can choose black font and white background or vice versa depending on the light, wall dimensions and overall mood you’re creating in the room.
