Pierre Dubois: Untlitled

Work / Illustration

Lots to look for and love in the ink-work wonder of Pierre Dubois’ illustrations

Switzerland-based, ink-happy Pierre(PierrePierre) Dubois has a monochrome but broad visual currency of iterative short, sharp lines and painted fills. These marks make up drawings that describe spectacularly but not quite in the reportage way – it’s a style that might otherwise be restricted to offhand observations in sketchbooks, but these are stand-alone works with a remarkable quality of detail. In particular, I can’t get over his landscape view of things, the clear-line way of working creates a pretty fascinating marked surface that all at once flattens and adds depth to the image.
