Illustration isn’t only what people call drawings, but has a world hidden between the subjects represented and the experimentation of techniques.
It is a concept well known by the Italian artist Carlo Duina, an original and brilliant illustrator that mixes several techniques through his works.
All of his pieces are made by collages, paint, lettering and pencil, showing that concept that an illustration can be made not only by a Pantone or ink.
His world is full of the traditional Italian figures like fishermen, processions, weavers, but also bizarre subjects like spacemen or divers that swim in the night sky with stars. All of this – made by pieces cut by old newspapers or magazines – is entitled by a lettering made by letters from newspapers, like a reminding of what we were and what we will become.
