HEROES & VILLAINS Art Direction
A 6 year in the making project featuring established artists portraits of “The Movement” from all over the world. The book will display around 100 artists in a 194 pg. hard bound book. The Heroes & Villains project is the vision of artists Tatiana Wills and Roman Cho. This art direction was a behemoth project that we tirelessly perfected over 6 months. Working directly daily with the publisher, artists, and copy editor/writer, required more than just graphic knowledge but a lot personality management.
From ZERO+ Publishing:
HEROES & VILLAINS is a collection of portraits by photographers Tatiana Wills and Roman Cho which surveys some of the most intriguing personalities in today’s art, street and pop culture movements. Wills and Cho began their prescient documentation of these underground innovators six years ago, and many of their subjects are now attracting unprecedented attention in the art world. Their photographs unveil the persona, unique vision and inner character of more than 100 of the most iconic figures in the contemporary creative world, such as Robert Williams, Mark Ryden, Gabrielle Bell, David Choe, and Saber One. With a vibrant sense of play and an intuitive ability to expose internal truths, Wills and Cho have captured quiet revelations of essence and character, as well as startling moments of spontaneous expression. To further illuminate the motivations and impact of this diverse group of artists at this vital moment in history, the volume includes an essay and fourteen in-depth interviews by Amanda Erlanson. As the first collection of its kind, this stunning monograph will be a sourcebook for our generation and those to come.
