Spanish illustrator and artist David Mendez Alonso makes the kind of exuberant imagery that’s desperate to be displayed across as many different media as possible. His vibrant patters, cheerful paintings and humorous sculptural works all embrace a luminous palette of colours and motley crew of unusual characters, giving them immediate universal appeal. As a result he’s constantly busy working on all manner of exciting projects, including fashion collections for Paraiso, elaborate books of curious character design and giant gouache paintings rich with pop culture references. Very nice indeed!
