Loud Mouth Alessandro Gottardo

This time Art Pit presents you a shout­ing Italian artist and illus­trator. After his works caught my atten­tion I imme­di­ately real­ized that he is one of my favor­ites from now on. Unique retro motives in almost every pic­ture of A. Gottardo def­in­itely appealed to me. Muddy pas­tel col­ours and imit­a­tion of spoil­ages – everything seems so warm and pleas­ant that it brings some sort of nos­tal­gic feelings.

Pseudonym “Shout” was cre­ated when he left one unnam­able com­pany which was known for suf­foc­at­ing cre­ativ­ity. So, after leav­ing his boss A. Gottardo shouted out loud and his voice was heard glob­ally. Now he works with such giants as The New York Times, The Guardian or Penguin Books.

Gottardo’s book cov­ers remind posters and past century’s book lay out tend­en­cies. What’s more, min­imal use of col­ours in wide areas is espe­cially effective.

To put it briefly, Alessandro’s works are def­in­itely mas­ter­ful. They give you a strange feel­ing of both dis­may and serenity but at the same time leave a huge impression.
