Joao Pedro Canhenha is a graphic and UI/UX designer based in Alpharetta, Georgia. He has worked as a user interface/experience designer with some big names like Amazon A9 and Bailey Lauerman. Right now he’s working on a lineup of print designs he calls Neon.
Pedro grew up liking and being inspired by the works of David Hockney. He channeled his childhood passion of drawing into graphic design when new tools starting emerging, expanding creative horizons.
Coming to ‘Neon’, psychedelic is one way to describe them. These can be misconstrued as random but on a closer look, references to familiar things emerge. These relations surprise the viewer and affect a search deeper into the composition. Paraphrasing Pedro on the point, these are interpretations of patterns and shapes that surrounds us, artificial and natural.
A very certain theme could also be noticed. These compositions offer a visual experience unique to every viewer and so are the themes. This helps the viewer believe in the certainty of the theme. In a way, these illustrations react to the mindset of the viewer, or maybe the contrariwise is true.
The colors too play a meticulous role, they accentuate the suggestion of movement, of things being destroyed and created. To this end, heavily complementing and contrasting colors have been used.
The ‘neon’ prints are available as home decor items, phone cases, t-shirts and other products.
