New Yorkers and Their 80s Routines | Collater.al

Trying to transport New York’s population to paper and their characteristics is not an easy task. With the series of illustrations New Yorkers and Their 80s Routines, Block by Block the artist Ilya Milstein has perfectly hit the target.

Born in Milan and raised in Melbourne, today Ilya lives and works in New York. With the years he has managed to perfect his technique, creating the drawing by hand with ink on paper and then coloring it on the computer.

In his latest series of illustrations, he represents the streets but forty years ago. Although the places are the same, the New York of the 80s was dirtier, less secure and perhaps could offer more possibilities. The four symbolic districts that the illustrator has chosen are today an emblem of the city: SoHo / Tribeca, East Village, Harlem and Upper East Side.
