Alessandro Crippa, aka Cripsta, is a Milan born image-maker and one fifth of the TURBØSAFARY collective, about to complete an MA in Illustration here in London at Camberwell. There’s not a whole heap more information about him out there but no matter, we’re more than happy to let these images speak for themselves. This recent work collides various motifs – classical, Egyptian, and just sort of weird – into colourful and mysterious creations – named after various gods – which gently mock the viewer, challenging us to find meanings but playfully suggesting that such a hunt is entirely futile. His varied portfolio suggests Alessandro is still experimenting with his style but this work will hopefully herald more of the same as his fledgling career develops.
