Gabriel East is a mixed media illustrator focussing on characters and storytelling. Their practice is centered around exploring interactivity and inviting an audience to see the world as it is portrayed in their illustration. Through a mix of analogue and digital techniques, Gabriel’s work aims to reimagine the ordinary and communicate a fascination with the endless possibilities of magic, nature, and space.
'A majority of my work is focussed on exploration and the discovery of new, imagined worlds. As such, this hammer’s purpose is celestial. I chose to abstract the traditional shapes of a hammer and stack them upon each other as a tower to the sky. Perhaps it will forge something new.'
