Antti Kalevi: Art Show

Work / Illustration

Irrepressibly joyful illustrations of an art show by Antti Kalevi

The illustration world would be a gloomier place without Antti Kalevi; his bright nursery school colour palettes, his characters’ consistently bold sartorial choices, their sweet googly eyes. The Finnish illustrator had us with his last series but Art Show takes our admiration of his work one step further – depicting familiar scenes from art galleries in his signature colourful style, with a wink and a cheeky grin.

From a sea of iPhones clamouring to photograph the walls to his own renditions of familiar-looking Rothko-, Matisse- and Pollock-esque canvases, the detail to these images is what makes them so irresistible. Illustration might have a hard time getting onto the walls in traditional art galleries, but rest assured that illustrators are doing everything in their power to broach the establishment in other ways.
