Astrazione, the new illustrated series by Riccardo Guasco

Astrazione |

Riccardo Guasco is an illustrator and painter from Piedmont who mixes poetry and irony. We at greatly appreciate his work because it is simple and ingenious, has extraordinary narrative power and manages to capture everyone’s attention.

In his creation process, Riccardo claims to be inspired by artistic movements such as Cubism and Futurism, but we find his work full of other references as well. Perhaps this is due to Astrazione, his new series of illustrations, which seems to be a great homage to art history.

Astrazione is a project in progress that unites some of the greatest artists in history with the actual product of their artistic instinct, it is a multiple work that brings together each character with the result of their art.
With essentiality Riccardo Guasco reduces to the minimum some photographs by Miró, Matisse, Picasso, Kandinsky, Depero, Haring, Leger, Rothko, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Warhol and Klee and then transforms them into illustrations inspired by their respective artistic movements.

Pop Art, Fauves, Land Art, Cubism and Futurism are just some of the references presented in Astrazione, a rare project capable of telling the history of art and teaching it to everyone with simplicity and effectiveness.
