Painting / Drawing

This illustrator personifies the night in human silhouette for a sweet and unreal result

Some customizations of abstract notions are mostly in the cliche. However, here Night is transformed into half-human, half-giant. Here, the originality of the artist's creative process is to draw traditionally and above all, to share his own vision of things, while respecting his basic aesthetic.

David Álvarez is a renowned illustrator, best known for his unique and unique style. This one stands out by its technique in pencil and uses almost only the black and white. He has also illustrated two books for children, and has a universe of his own, spooky, even dream.

A work of shadows and lights of the most fascinating 🌓

In his latest series of drawings, "I Dreamed I Was the Night", he interprets the night as this figure almost human, entirely composed of darkness and stars. The beauty of these works lies in thestrange and the weird. This is what fascinates so much in this aerial figure; here, Night is half-clear, half-blurred. We feel a lot of lightness in the sketches of this vaporous entity, almost unreal.

In the whole of this series, we can therefore to follow Night in all his actions; when she tracks, sits and sleeps, all in a beautiful landscape of isolated countryside. In one of these illustrations, we can also see it removing a mask of his face, which is actually the Moon.

As a whole, it is a very poetic and imprint of melancholy. Currently, this series is on sale in one online catalog, and David aims to decline the collection in narrative history, in order to make it a book. Feel free to watch his other work on Instagram !
