Hannah Shone is a graphic designer and illustrator for Braamfontein-based brand consultancy The Bread.
Having graduated from Vega School of Brand Leadership with a distinction in her BA Visual Communications in 2015, she moved back to Joburg to start her career. Since then, she has spent her spare time illustrating and building on ideas that were conceived while she was studying. With her debut solo exhibition, This Must Be The Place (2016), which utilised acrylic ink on Fabriano, Shone has since explored different mediums. This manifested in her second solo exhibition, Fantasma (2017): digital illustrations screen-printed onto monoprinted blue and neon pink backgrounds.
Shone's style is whimsical, adventurous and somewhat obscure. However, the conceptualisation of each piece can be found in their titles. One could say Fantasma's pieces are Shone's daydreams brought to life on paper. Shone has contributed to local zine Bat Butt, is participating in an upcoming group show at No End Contemporary Art Space and has several collaborations in the pipeline.
