There is so much talent floating about in the world of mosaics. Exploring the many styles, materials, and masterpieces thought up by this niche of creative minds is one of our greatest joys so we’ve collected just a few for the first in a series of magnificent mosaic artists.
It’s the 3D nature of Hüzmeli’s tiles that sets them apart from many other talented artists. Based in Turkey, her art grows on the country’s rich tiling tradition and expands its reach by teaching others about the method. Read more about her work here.
One of our favourite discoveries of last year was the wonderful work of Jane Glotzer. Not only is her eye for detail second to none, but her choice of canvas offers a truly charming take on the beauty to be had with old, unused, and broken everyday objects. Read more about her work here.
This UK based mosaic artist offers an entirely different take on the modern mosaic. Referencing pop culture, fashion, and street art, O’Brien’s work celebrates the modern and the retro with an ancient skill. Read more about his work here.
It’s O’Highway’s colourful combination of ceramic and fused glass that first caught Tile Addict’s eye many moons ago. Often mixed with reclaimed and found items, O’Highway’s commissions have also on occasion utilised the skill of blacksmith Richard Bent (a notable example of which is the Boundary Feature for Magnolia Court).
