Artist Profile: Trav

How amazing is this picture?!

Last month Kolekto Magazine celebrated its third birthday and in honour of reaching this magnificent milestone, six talented illustrators immortalised the sixteen members of Kolekto’s writing team in a series of portraits that aptly reflect the publication’s individuality and diversity.

My portrait is by the brilliant Trav who featured as Kolekto’s Artist of the Month back in December. With a predilection for the surreal, Trav utilises a variety of different styles in his illustrative work, demonstrating through detailed realism and thoughtful abstraction his significant skills as an artist.

Kolekto IllustrationNot only does Trav have an impressive portfolio of two-dimensional work, he also experiments in film and animation and has undertaken many collaborative projects in the field, including directing and editing promotional videos and adverts. To view more of Trav’s work, visit his website (back-down-warchild) or, if you’re an illustrator under thirty and are looking for some worthy promotion, check out Kolekto’s Young Illustrator of the Month feature.

Side note: My latest article for Kolekto Magazine – a review of collaborative photography project, Open for Business – is available to read on Kolekto’s website now.
