If you are a music lover and you like to go from Festival to Festival, if you are a basketball fan or if you read or browse many magazines, you have probably seen some illustrations by Francesco Del Re before.
Born in 1991, Francesco was already drawing when he was 10 years old, a passion that many children share, but he had the patience and perseverance to follow this passion by attending – after graduating in Literature – the three-year course of illustration at the International School of Comics. The subjects to which he dedicates himself most frequently are those related to his other passions, such as music. It is no coincidence, in fact, that Francesco started by creating playbills for concerts, arriving at the creation of entire illustrated diaries of festivals such as Primavera Sound.
At first glance, his work, which vaguely brings us back to German Expressionism, could leave you dismayed. Made with a technique that mixes painting and drawing with digital techniques, Francesco’s illustrations distort the figures and with them the reality. Through this stylistic choice, Francesco conveys all the sensations and emotions that he encapsulates in the image at the time of their creation.
