Kavel Rafferty – Summer of Love, The Times
Illustration for short story ‘Summer of Love’ in The Times.
Kavel Rafferty is an English commercial artist who lives and works in Barcelona. She combines drawing, found imagery, print and paint to create unique images of real emotional resonance and genuine charm. Her inspirations and interests – like rare old soul 45s, flea markets and vintage shop signs and type – help inform her distinctively bittersweet, elegantly nostalgic style.
Kavel has been asked to create works for everybody from The Times and The Observer to Conde Nast Traveller, Ted Baker, Topshop, Paperchase and Selfridges. She also runs her own small exhibition space in Barcelona, Galeria Kavel.
