Filled with abandoned roads, scattered flowers and brilliant blue skylines – Western Cape and WHiT NY are amongst the latest series by visual sensation Jimmy Marble (b. 1985). With a keen eye for set design – an attribute that has granted him numerous advertising assignments with TK Maxx and Spotify – and an unmistakably colourful repertoire, the director, photographer, designer and muralist is an effervescent pioneer. Each composition finds whimsical borders within the natural landscape – sand dunes and hillsides being two examples – whilst each figure brings a sense of vitality. Whether running, sunbathing or standing on a ladder, each model asserts a sense of character, captured effortlessly through the frame alongside contemporary styling and bright pastel hues. Marble returns to Aesthetica for the second time, providing each page with a sense of playfulness and injecting each image with creativity.
