KRISTAL MEL­SON

IL­LUS­TRA­TOR

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - THE NEWS -

She’s trans­formed the like­ness of David Bowie’s Ziggy Star­dust and El­iz­a­beth Tay­lor’s Cleopa­tra per­sonas into il­lus­tra­tions burst­ing with kalei­do­scopic vi­brancy, and reimag­ined Sin­ga­pore’s cityscapes into vivid works of art. One part tongue-in-cheek, many parts mem­o­rable, Mel­son’s in­tri­cate il­lus­tra­tions have been fea­tured by Uniqlo, Face­book and more. Now part of a team called Lunch Money, a col­lec­tive that in­jects life into co-work­ing spa­ces through vis­ually-ar­rest­ing mu­rals, the 35-year-old also spends her time dab­bling in some as­pects of fash­ion—her il­lus­tra­tions have adorned sneak­ers and bags, while her graphic t-shirts, iron-on patches and me­tal pins are worn by those in the know like a badge of hon­our.

Jacket, Prada. Patches, Mel­son’s own
