Sketch show: Depot Basel mixes drawing and design

Basel, Switzerland – The spontaneity of creativity will be captured through drawings in a design exhibition by Depot Basel.

Craft & Drawing will present collections by 13 designers, each accompanied by a freehand drawing by the artist. Curator Matylda Krzykowski says the aim was to give the designers an ‘uncommon creative compulsion’.

‘What we were interested in and curious about was to present their ability to make a drawing, to let them express themselves within the visual arts on a two-dimensional medium,’ she tells LS:N Global. 

By viewing the two creations side by side, visitors will gain insight into how each artist approaches design and the freedom of instinctive expression. 

The exhibition will feature a variety of design styles, including the beautiful craft of Lola Lely and the digital work of Sander Wassink.
