Chilly's Artist Series
Chilly's has had the pleasure of collaborating with some incredible artists and creatives over the years. This year we're making it official with the launch of our Artist Series. Each month we'll be releasing a limited edition bottle (or two) designed by some of our favourite artists from across the globe.
They've been given complete free reign to create unique designs in their own signature style. The bottles will be on a limited run and each one will be engraved with its unique edition number. To make sure you don't miss out on any of them, sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of this page.
FEBRUARY - Elliot Snowman
For our February Artist Series, we’re wandering into the vibrant imagination of British artist, Elliot Snowman. To say he has his own style is an understatement – Elliot’s work is striking in both colour and form, taking inspiration from Japanese woodblock prints, Korean tigers and artists such Paul Nash, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. We hope his designs, ‘Catfish’ and ‘Tiger’, awake your senses as much as they do ours!
DECEMBER - Jacqueline Colley
December’s artist is whisking you off to Wildwood, New Jersey! Jacqueline Colley’s ‘Neon Nights’ and ‘Pastel Road Trip’ feature a cacophony of mid-century American architecture, with quirky motels, neon signs and (of course!) a pineapple bar. Grab yours before they're gone!
NOVEMBER - Mark Conlan
Introducing November’s featured artist, Mark Conlan. He’s a multi disciplined Illustrator from Dublin, currently living and working in Melbourne. Mark’s work is often character focussed, with rich colour palettes and a sense of whimsy and warmth.
His limited edition designs, aptly titled ‘Greek Dream’, are inspired by tales of Ancient Greece. Grab yours now!
OCTOBER - Alternative Aesthetics
For our October Artist Series, we bring you our spookiest design yet —‘Osseous Horde’. Alternative Aesthetics, known to some as Colin Kersley, is an illustrator based in Cardiff, UK. His style is playful and bold with clean lines and mostly monochrome.
Nothing says Halloween better than a bottle full of skulls. This creepy creation is limited edition, so get your claws on it now.
SEPTEMBER - Bodil Jane
Dutch illustrator Bodil Jane works from a small mezzanine studio in Amsterdam. Her work is often female-focused, featuring women that are unapologetically themselves.
Besides illustrating, Bodil loves yoga and has been practising for 7 years now. Her favourite is the crow pose - a useful trick for hands-free papaya!
JULY - Michela Picchi
Michela Picchi is an Italian cross-disciplinary artist currently based in Berlin. Michela works with a distinctive, vibrant colour palette and explores pop, surrealist and psychedelic themes.
Whilst she works on everything from huge wall murals to 3D installations and tapestries, her style is instantly recognisable and we’re so excited to be able to include her in our Artist Series this month.
JUNE - Alex Jenkins
Alex Jenkins is a London-based illustrator and cartoonist who describes his work as ‘exploring satirical and critical subject matter through a distinctive and vivid style.’
We love the way Alex brings his unique vision to life through bizarre and vibrant characters and environments. You won’t find anything else quite like the bottles he’s created for us!
MAY - Tess Smith-Roberts
Tess Smith-Roberts is a London based illustrator who’s fairly new on the scene, having only graduated from Kingston University last year. In that short time she’s built up an impressive following and has worked on a number of editorial projects for a variety of international clients.
She approaches her work with humour, bold shapes, and a playful use of colour. Tess’s practice has a strong foundation in printmaking, and she has also produced one graphic novel (we've been informed that another might be in the pipeline!).
MARCH - Marco Oggian
Marco Oggian is an Italian illustrator, designer and all round creative polymath originally from Northern Italy and currently living and working in La Coruña, Spain.
Marco’s creative style is a bit explosive. It’s like a vacuum cleaner that sucks in ideas and inspiration from all around him. Then one day it gets full and suddenly the vacuum bag bursts and there is dust and debris everywhere. Eventually the dust settles, and with a lot of patience he tidies everything up and organises it into a new creation.
Marco has just one artistic goal and that is to never stop creating.
