The Desktop Wallpaper Project featuring Michela Buttignol

Michela Buttignol

I feel like the DWP has been a bit too “fun in the sun oh look it’s summer” lately so I wanted to mix it up a bit with something different, something a bit more somber. I thought this wallpaper from Michela Buttignol would be great, as it’s a bit darker in tone and the style feels very fine art to me. Michela is an Italian illustrator who’s based in New York, doing freelance illustration and graphic design projects. Her style incorporates a lot of charcoal, giving this beautiful, heavy texture to all her work, which comes across clearly in the wallpaper above. It’s dark and mysterious yet still retains an aspect of cheekiness with the touches of rouge on the cheeks of the fish and the spectacles they wear. A big thanks to Michela for such a lovely piece of art. Check back next Wednesday for another great wallpaper!
