Louise Benson, the deputy editor of Elephant Magazine, has a knack for knowing what’s good. She writes about contemporary culture through the lens of art and design and, alongside photographer Lorna Lohr, co-created Scenic Views – an oddly romantic photo-based magazine celebrating underappreciated interiors in bars, cafes and airports.

Now she’s put her curatorial eye to good use, for us, by selecting a few juicy prints for your living room wall.

Anthony Iacono collages bodies alongside everyday objects like fruit, chairs, mirrors and telephones in a way that feels both artificial and organic. There is an underlying tension to them that is strangely unsettling.”

Cary Kwok at ICA

Cary Kwok has a brilliantly deadpan sense of humour, combining everything from art history to heartbreak. His illustrations are playfully erotic, and he loves to introduce a bit of 70s style. This print has it all.”

Sol Calero caught my eye a few years ago with her exploration of tropical” motifs like fruit, flowers and other decorative elements. We met up at her apartment in Berlin last year, which is an incredible riot of colour.”

Maisie Cousins at Elephant Kiosk

I think of squelchy things when I think of Maisie Cousins, and that’s no bad thing. She focuses in on the mess and dirt of everyday life, from a bum covered in grass to a box of leftover Chinese takeaway.”

Peter Sutherland at Dream Sequence

Peter Sutherland has a knack for finding beauty even in the most familiar of things, and this print is no exception. It’s also worth checking out the Dream Sequences website for more works from the likes of Ed Templeton and Jason Nocito.”
