We are so excited about this week's drop! We spend our days trying to find artists who are out of the box, unique, talented and independent. When we came across the artist who created this week's work of wearable art, Blair we were absolutely mind blown. Blair has a passion for mythology, runes and other historical art. She has a style that is uniquely hers and we have never seen artwork quite like it before! Let's explore the artist and inspiration behind the Nine Worlds apparel range.
Blair is a self-taught digital artist originating from the Highlands of Scotland with Doric as her native dialect. Blair states that Growing up in a country that has such rich folklore, strange linguistics, vivid architecture and rich tales of the past, she could not help but appreciate the relationship between history and modern society and that is why most of her artwork is inspired by occultism, ancient societies, cultures and languages.
Blair further states that although our modern art is rarely carved into stone, she believes that we still have lessons to learn from our ancestors. She feels those vibrant lives, tales and journeys still have so much to teach us and it’s something she aims to portray with every art piece that she creates.
The 9 worlds apparel range is inspired by the 9 realms in Norse mythology and Blair used a mixed media method to create a sacred geometric diagram of the 9 realms. The nine realms in Norse mythology are held within the branches and roots of the Norse tree of life or world tree Yggdrasil. These realms are home to different kinds of beings including humans, Gods and Goddesses, giants etc.
These realms consist of Niflheim, the land of fog and mist, Muspelheim, the land of fire, Asgard, home of the Gods, Midgard home of the humans, Jotunheim, home of the giants, Vanaheim home of the Vanir, Alfheim home of the light elves, Svartalfheim, home of the dwarves and finally Helheim, home of the dishonorable dead.
We hope you love this range just as much as we do!
