ABOUT TWO PAGES
Two Pages is a collection of sketchbooks that started in 2012. Since then it has brought together more than 450 artists from Europe, Asia, and America. Graphic designers, illustrators, and visual artists depict their ideas within the pages of the sketchbooks and build an international chain of creative people.
The project has been graced by established artists such as Niklaus Troxler, Ahn Sang-Soo, R2, Christoph Niemann, Jean Jullien and Olimpia Zagnoli. Students and emerging artists have also participated allowing the project to record fresh ideas and trends that will shape visual communication in the coming years.
The project was initiated by Konstantinos Trichas, a London-based designer.
