    Gabriel Moreno – Illustrator

    Although he is best known for his work as illustrator in advertising, where his experience and reach is remarkable, in the last few years he has also successfully developed his personal line of art. His pieces make striking statements about female beauty through graphic and elegant images. His works are usually comprised of flowing and precise fine black lines, over which he deploys shocks of color accenting on clothing, faces, or environments. He uses dramatic gradients of colors and multiple layers that emerge from the images and involvement of the figures.

  • 'Drifting' by Olivier Valsecchi
    'Drifting' by Olivier Valsecchi

    French photographer Olivier Valsecchi's new Drifting series is a journey through art history where each picture merges the tradition of the reclining nude with the still life painting genre from Flanders. "Still-life was the perfect fit for a post-war atmosphere. Beyond symbolizing the ephemeral nature of life, it relates to the notion of transitioning. I wanted to set bodies into an unfamiliar environment and infuse them with a feeling of disorientation, as if recovering from trauma or stuck in a vertigo."
