Umami #9: Nathan Nankervis remixes Anna Crews

Umami is a very special collaborative remix project between The Lifted Brow and Cordite Poetry Review. Original pieces of poetry and flash fiction were selected by Cordite guest editor Luke Davies, before The Lifted Brow assigned some of our favourite creative minds — visual artists, writers, musicians, architects, programmers, designers and technicians — to remix these originals and produce fourteen new works. Each weekday over three weeks we’re publishing a new one of these extraordinary responses on our Umami site.

Today we feature graphic artist Nathan Nankervis’s remix of a poem by Anna Crews.


Nathan Nankervis is a Graphic Artist and Illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia. He creates bold, exuberant pieces that are filled with simple messages, playful palettes and eccentric shapes that inspire an audience’s inquisitiveness and urge to play. Nathan has worked with broad array of international clients such as Heineken, Redbull, BONDs and Xero to name a few.
