Friederike Hantel is a freelance illustrator and visual artist, currently based in Hamburg.
Her artwork is inspired by a mixture of international pop influences. She creates a bizarre but aesthetically considered view of the world around her, using stylistic quotations from, and new arrangements of, different artistic eras. Each image provides cultural reflection and reinterpretation through a comedic lens.
She says: “As an illustrator, my work includes playing around with the aesthetic influences that each project contains within its content, and I believe this is what keeps my work interesting and prevents me from getting bored.”
