Illustration: Architecturally trained Giacomo Bagnara is magnificent

Posted by James Cartwright,

There’s a lot more to Italian illustrator Giacomo Bagnara than initially meets the eye. Like Dutch cartoon genius Joost Swarte, Giacomo’s interest in drawing goes beyond simply making pictures; he’s got architectural training up to the eyeballs and could happily turn out a stylish building should he so wish. But he’s currently channelling his creative efforts into producing beautiful pieces of two dimensional imagery, using his professionally trained eye to create work that’s geometrically precise and arranged with an architect’s eye for detail.

The results are timeless, comfortably straddling the aesthetics of numerous eras – from the victorian past to the swimwear of the future – and have attracted the attention of clients as prestigious as The New York Times, GQ, BOLO Paper, Aston Martin and Cadillac. Nice work if you can get it!
