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.”
