Tristan Kerr is an artist and typographic designer based in Australia.
After working in Switzerland as a print technician in a renowned traditional screen-print studio and as a designer in Paris for several years, he discovered his passion for typography, public art and the revival of the decorative arts movement of hand sign-painting.
Today, his independent Design and Art practice is influenced by yesteryear’s street signage, urban art and nostalgic ideas. His commissions span from hand-painted advertisements for Penfold’s Wine and urban art murals for Redbull Music Academy to illustration for Hermés, Paris.
Along with a formal degree in Graphic Design and apprenticeship in traditional Screen-Print, Tristan’s style and art practise has evolved through extensive experimentation and research. His work has been exhibited in galleries throughout Australia and Europe.
