Illustrator Love #5: Pablo Bernasconi

Hailing from Brazil, Pablo Bernasconi was trained in graphic design. Pablo began collaging somewhat by accident while working for a newspaper. He makes his collages in real life, as sculptures, photographs them and edits digitally when necessary, though he prefers a tangible link between artist and tools. (Be still my beating heart!) Also of note: he works incredibly hard, early in the mornings, spending hours upon hours discovering.

Appealing in his work: a sense of play and humor, rich textures (e.g. look at the residues of letter forms in the red pot above), the relationship between abstract forms and conceivable realities, the metaphors and even the compositional simplicity (or, cleanness). We can read the images, enter into the ideas and let them transform us.

There’s an excellent interview with Pablo over at Illustration Mundo, where I originally found his work (and much of this information).
