Swiss illustrator Serafine Frey’s recent work looks like illustrations from Greek pottery, reinterpreted with long-limbed characters piled together, entwined and simply drawn. It’s been over a year since we last featured Serafine’s brightly coloured works, and she’s been experimenting with figures and forms.
Earthy colours with smatterings of vibrant shades create an eclectic mix as cops and robbers, peculiar silhouettes and a couple in love meander throughout her website. But it’s the smaller details that bring her work to life. Clothing, facial expressions, position and movement are all paid attention to, which wonderfully humanises some of her more surreal illustrations.
