After writing about Yasmina Vulgarity a while back, I happened upon the Hantu Collective by her association to them. It’s is becoming apparent as I’m learning more about Sheffield arts scene that the relationships within the city are all very incestuous with groups working as satellites of each other (the Artificial Constructs collective is a case in point).
An instance of this collaboration will be the Gully Xmas Market on the weekend of the 8th of December. Some of West Yorkshire’s finest – including Yasmina and Hantu – will have wares on display in time for the festive season.
Which brings me summarily to Geo Law who works as the Creative Director of the Hantu Collective. Geo manifests vibrant and spirited creations which draw influences from anime, graphic novels and psychedelic art. Despite the precision and accuracy of his work Geo draws mostly by freehand as this emphasises an “organic” aspect to his art.
After his work made a splash in Sheffield after finishing a Graphic Design placement at Evocreative in Prague, Geo Law was commissioned to complete various murals and bespoke work in the city. Clients have also ranged from Rolo Tomassi to Sheffield’s Millenium Gallery.
Hantu is primarily a fashion label and “is all about letting images do the talking and having your imagination on your sleeve.”
