mysterious work from equally mysterious 'a graphic artist'

For most creatives (whether they admit it publicly or not) there’s a frisson of pride and excitement at seeing their name on blogs, in print or in vinyl on a gallery’s window. But others genuinely seem to shun the limelight, such as the man or woman known simply as A Graphic Artist. There’s scant information on his/her website, and unsurprisingly a Google search bears little fruit. Anyway this enigma produces some really interesting work – not just vector illustrations and GIFs – but also an excellent new series of collages made from cut colored paper and black crepe tape. In an email to It’s Nice That wasted few words, the artist explained: “The artwork takes on a physical process, no longer a gestural mark; by applying cut paper the image becomes a constructive collage.” And if the form is unusual, the scenes themselves are intriguing too, with a certain film noir, Charles Bukowski vibe of snatched moments and quiet, sexy sadness.

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.


He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.


An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.
