Every so often I sit in my modest London flat and allow myself to dream up fantasies of my ideal house, complete with its bourgeois paint-job, high ceilings and sash windows. But when I crash back down to reality, my am I thankful for posters, making the walls of otherwise drab rooms homely, colourful and beautiful since as long as I can remember. I owe my fondness of each of my humble little abodes all to posters.
But when it comes to making really really fantastic posters, Italian artist Sarah Mazzetti does it just perfectly. With her selection of beautifully scatty and colourful designs her illustrations show no end of talent and creativity. Made complete by her distinctive scrawly typography, it’s her obvious diversity however that really makes her stand out from the crowd. Using block colours one minute and then switching to intricately detailed designs the next, I think it is safe to say that Sarah Mazzetti is one talented lady and I know if I had it my way, her posters would most definitely be lining my walls.
