What’s On Your Wall?: Chelsea O’Byrne, Illustrator
Welcome to What’s On Your Wall?, a series that explores the studio walls of the artists who inspire us.
Simple, whimsical, and sometimes even a little bit eerie, Chelsea’s work combines the naivete of children’s book illustrations with a 1984-esque dystopian flair. Explore the Vancouver-based illustrator’s studio wall – filled with inspiring books and the work of her friends – below:
I work in my home, and some of my favourite things to surround myself with are lots of inspiring books. Some of my favourite art books are (clockwise from top left) This Is Paris by M. Sasek, Frida by Isiuchi, Sara Midda‘s South of France, and On Board Noah’s Ark by Ludwig Bemelmans.
Framework Magazine is a digital arts magazine that explores the stories behind the creative people and the beautiful things they create that inspire us at Classic Specs. Founded in 2015, Framework Magazine explores everything from the stories of artists, photographers, designers, and other creative professionals working in Brooklyn, New York to the vintage styles of the mid to late twentieth century that inspired the styles and shapes of the glasses and sunglasses we create at Classic Specs.

If you’re looking to the next art gallery to check out in your city, we curate a guide to art galleries and openings in New York City, San Francisco, and Los Angeles every week to make sure that you’re up-to-date with the art scene happening around you.
