Baptiste Virot gives us summer vibes with his pop art-inspired illustrations

French illustrator Baptiste Virot has a bold and graphic sensibility. His pop art-inspired illustrations use comic book pointillism and brash colours to heighten the surreal and light-hearted content of his work. When we last featured Baptiste it was clear he was still finding his feet in terms of style. While there’s still the odd experiment devoid of colour, it seems like this vibrant approach is one he’s sticking with.

Among the personal work there’s commissions for French publications Jalouse and Medor, which see him play with crowds of people and exaggerated stereotypes. Much of his work is set by the pool or sea, like his series French Riviera which depicts bikini-clad characters drinking cocktails on the sand and taking phone calls in the sea.
