I wouldn’t have immediately guessed that Italian illustrator Giacomo Bagnara has a background in architecture. His bright and playful style, however, has a geometric and structural sensibility that suggests an awareness of pieces coming together to form a whole, and enough architectural references that it starts to make sense.
Bagnara’s illustrations have a great minimalist approach to representational imagery, reducing objects to flat, hard-edged shapes with a limited color palette. The personality of his more abstract compositions is present throughout his body of work, and really shines in more ambiguous pieces where it’s hard to tell whether an object is representational or abstract geometric exploration.
