Ornamental Conifer

British artist Nicolai Sclater may be coined a sign painter by trade, but he takes his art further than the customary two-dimensional canvases. Employing sleek typography fonts that ode with retro aesthetics, Sclater, otherwise known as the Ornamental Conifer, toys with various mediums — denim jackets, vintage automotive and garden equipment — as anomalous backdrops to his work. Originally honing his skills as a graphic designer, Sclater left the dependable route for the niche market of sign painting.
