Ursula Hitz is an artist and designer. Born in rural Switzerland she cultivated diverse talents in typography graphics and cheese making. Since moving to London a decade ago her work has focused on location and place. She meticously creates typographic maps fo the wold's best-known cities. Her work is exhibited featured and reviewed both online and in selected London galleries.
'Each map is a place to rest your eyes on. You can contempate it as an abstract texture as a location or as a series of words. Unlike regular maps mine don't focuts on streets or buildings. Instead they build an organic texture of words that grow from the centre.'
The maps are screen-printed on archival printmaking paper. Texture deckle edge and vibrancy of colours convey an air of heriage while the character comes from slight inconsistencies in the ink levels.
