Giulia Hartz and the illustrations that mix pop culture and irony

Giulia Guido · 6 months ago · Art

Giulia Hartz‘s artistic career begins on the shores of Garda Lake, where she was born and where she immediately developed an interest in drawing. Then she developed in Milan, where she undertook a course of study focused on Design at the Politecnico, arriving to move to Berlin, the city where she lives and works today and that manages to give her the charge and the stimulus necessary in her work.

Among the many things she deals with, Giulia also creates beautiful illustrations characterized by a style developed over time, using any technique, from colored pencils and paper to arrive at the digital drawing. 

Giulia Hartz represents her world, what she lives every day, what surrounds her, her friends and personal experiences. That’s why each illustration tells a story and you know, the stories are made to be told to someone and she decided to share them on Instagram, making her followers her private audience. 

You will not fail to like the style of her illustrations, it is as if the young Italian designer took elements that belong to pop culture and related to current affairs and mixed them with a very personal touch of irony. 

Below you will find a selection of his works, to find out more go to her Instagram profile.

“The art of bloom”, a journey through fascinating concepts of nature.

“The art of bloom”, a journey through fascinating concepts of nature.

Collater.al Contributors · 5 months ago · Art

The creative agency intertrend in collaboration with the Daikoku Design Institute presents the latest work entitled “the art of bloom“, the interactive experience where the protagonists are just the man and nature.

A parallel dimension recreated through flowers, light, and sounds that traverse the space and engage the senses of the viewer in unexpected ways.

The exhibition was opened to the public on July 24, 2019, and will be held until September 29 at the theater in Downtown Long Beach, California.

Elliana Esquivel’s illustrations dig deep into each of us

Elliana Esquivel’s illustrations dig deep into each of us

Giulia Guido · 5 months ago · Art

Fear, loneliness, uncertainty, love are feelings that are difficult to explain in words and even more difficult to translate into images. The young illustrator Elliana Esquivel always succeeds in this impossible task, showing us the true face of our emotions. 

Elliana is originally from North Carolina and started drawing when she was very young, this passion has never abandoned her and today her illustrations that she sells on her online shop on Etsy are literally stolen. 

The strength of her work is universality. Elliana represents those states of mind that we have all experienced at least once in our lives and she does so without too much pretension, with a disarming simplicity that leaves us almost perplexed. 

The style of her illustrations seems almost incomplete, as if every time a color, background or an element were missing, but it is precisely this choice that makes the message of her works comprehensible to all. Because some sensations are impossible to translate into words or images.

Flowmarket and the bottles full of emotions

Flowmarket and the bottles full of emotions

Giulia Guido · 5 months ago · Art

I go back to talking about Instagram profiles that you absolutely must know with the Flowmarket one. I discovered it by chance while browsing the search page, when my attention was caught by the photo of a small bottle, full of a transparent liquid, with a label printed with the word “Passion”. 

I immediately went to find out what it was about. 

Flowmarket is a small company founded in 2004 in Copenhagen that had a brilliant idea. In a world that pushes us to surround ourselves with material goods, the founders of Flowmarket wanted to bring people’s attention back to what is really important, what we really need: emotions. 

So the idea was born to create small bottles full of moods, feelings, fears, flaws, and merits. When the content is a positive thing, such as passion, generosity, enthusiasm, the liquid inside the bottle is transparent, while when it is negative, such as stress, negativity, homophobia, then the liquid is black. 

The task of these mini sculptures is to inspire people and help them to be better. 

On the Flowmarket website, you can find the perfect bottle for you, it costs only 8 euros.
