‘I try to create images that retains its freshness of the first paint stroke, the expressions of the line have to be very free and spontaneous. While keeping a rigorous drawing. So i use the fast techniques like a bic, large brush, water colour and Chinese ink.’
Florian Nicolle is a french illustrator and designer. The expressions of his lies are free and spontaneous, moving over script as if you are watching the image come to life. But the final image looks anything but rushed. Every time that i look at his images i see something new and i can hardly keep my eye still, trying to take in all the lines and strokes that he has put down on the page. He creates these amazing images of people and portraits that look so bare but at the same time so full of life and feeling. He uses just enought stokes that you feel that no details have been lost from the original image but few enough to keep them looking raw ad naked.
I love the overall aesthetics of his work ad it is a reminder that great art isn’t always in the detail but sometimes in the lack of it.
