These beautifully studied artworks are created by Florian Nicolle, aka Neo who is a graphic designer and illustrator from Caen in France. Neo’s sharp artistic eye and clever use of junk paper, mix to create some stunning portrait studies. Ink splats, fine linear pen work, text and faded wallpaper are some of Neo’s favorite tools to create his unique powerful artworks.
Neo explains, “I try to create an image 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.” He now plans to move to Paris and focus on illustration, which has already become his main passion and career focus for the future.
