Arty Globe by Hartwig Braun
Hartwig Braun is a fine artist specialising in design-led illustrative works, using his architectural background to create expansive, detailed and engaging cityscapes utilising a mixture of organic materials and digital methods. Scale and fine details are important part of his aesthetic, which combined with a passion for the urban experience and visual iconography, has developed a working practice that combines a technical accuracy with a playful agenda. Using traditional drawing techniques as well as the help of modern technology and tools, Hartwig’s managed to create what he considers to be a unique yet mass appealing visual style. Arty Globe by Hartwig Braun launched at Greenwich Market in 2008, starting life in the form of a weekend market stall and now residing in a large, 2 floors, gallery shop at 15 Greenwich Market, SE10 9HZ. The ethos behind the business is to provide a means to make Hartwig’s works accessible to a wider audience in the form of quality gifts and products that are largely UK produced, with designs that include cityscapes, landmarks and other cultural icons produced in Hartwig’s signature style.
