Internationally acclaimed illustrator Emiliano Ponzi is based in Milan, Italy. His bold illustrations employ repetition, a judicious of line, and strong graphic compositions to define and communicate the concept at hand. His illustrations are visual metaphors that convey strong messages. On Klat magazine he says this his style:
“Up until a short time ago I would have said conceptual. I took elements away to arrive at the essence of things. Now I think that the essence as such is no longer sufficient. The world has exhausted the potential of less is more. Less has become vacuous, and has ended up representing nothing, superficiality.”
“I’m at war with superficiality. You need to know life inside out. We have to understand things, get to know them, study them in depth. You find the best experiences, the most gratifying ones, deeper down, beyond appearances.”

Aleksandar Savic creates art for a wide range of clients around the world but we are particularly amazed at his collection of portraits. The illustrator, designer and art director is based in Belgrade, Serbia. He graduated from the Faculty of Art and Design, Graphic Design and Visual Communication Department, Belgrade. Since 2010 he has worked as a freelancer in the fields of graphic design and illustration applying geometric shapes and muted color schemes in many of his compositions.

When we review an artist’ website we are always drawn first to their sketchbooks as it is a view of their life in that present moment. Ralf Nietmann is a graphic designer who in 2006 founded his own design studio in the heart of Hamburg. His figurative work always tries and express the one perfect moment evident in the immediacy of his drawing style. We like his work so much that we will probably follow up with more.
