The Desktop Wallpaper Project featuring Olimpia Zagnoli

Olimpia Zagnoli

Last week a reader named Sarah wrote in the comments that she’d like to see a female artist here in the DWP, so Sarah, I’d like to present this week’s contributor, Olimpia Zagnoli. Olimpia is an Italian illustrator who’s work I posted about recently and immediately wrote her to see if she’d make a wallpaper. I was immediately drawn to her linework and color choices, and I knew she’d come up with something amazing.

As you can see above, her wallpaper turned out awesome. The simplicity of the the wallpaper is awesome, and the shapes are totally beautiful. And it’s such a small detail, but I would never have thought to put a pink circle thing at the top corner like that, but for some reason that little detail really makes it pop. I kind of feel like the wallpaper is telling some sort of Godard-esque tale about cheating lovers in Paris, couldn’t you see that? Okay, maybe I just have an overactive imagination…

    This guy,, is one of my favourite artists on Deviant Art at the moment. Really detailed, surreal art with a strange sense of humour. I would love to see him do a wallpaper.

    Hey.. I love your website and this desktop Wednesday thingo!
    FYI- The 1280×800 doesn’t have a pink circle either.

    The wallpaper doesn’t fit the 1280*1024 size. I don’t have the whole picture.
    thanks ;)
