We recently featured a brilliantly designed water bottle from Topo Design here on the pages of The Coolector which was crafted in collaboration with a supremely talented artist by the name of John Fellows and, truth be told, the rest of his artwork is simply too good to be ignored so we’ve had to cover that as well.
John Fellows is a Colorado based craftsman but he takes inspiration for his artwork from the various places he’s encountered on his travels such as the Swiss Alps, the Caribbean and from rafting down the Grand Canyon but there are also plenty of Colorado elements to his artwork too that really shine through.
What makes Fellows’ artwork so unique and, in our eyes, awesome, is the fact that it is all layered on used nautical charts and topographic maps for a wonderfully unusual finished product that engages the eye and will appeal to more or less anyone regardless of their artistic slant. Grizzly mountain men and salty sea merchants are the main muse for Fellows and these lend themselves perfectly to the sort of artwork he creates – check out some of our favourites below:
This is exactly the sort of artwork that we adore at Coolector HQ and it’s made all the more impressive when you consider the painstaking methods Fellows deploys to complete his creations. You can read more about his creative process HERE.
Fellows has exhibited his spectacular artwork throughout Colorado and further afield in the likes of Japan and Australia and if you’re after some truly spectacular pieces of art with a nautical and exploration edge then these crackers from Fellows will definitely tick all of the right boxes.
