Today, my daughter asked me if I knew Domenico Gnoli, an Italian artist . No, I've never heard of him! She knew his work from school. We looked him up on the internet and immediately my attention was drawn. Gnoli (1933 - 1970) was a stage designer and painter, born in Rome. Like American Pop artists, Gnoli took as his subject matter mundane objects, rendering them with exactitude.The paintings are large - some over 6 feet on their longest side - and present blown-up details of furniture, hair, clothing, a brick wall. I love this dreamlike proximity to each item, his attention to detail and the colors that he uses: I'm a fan!
"Red Dress Collar" (1969)
A while ago, I got this commission for a logo for a biological florist. The fact that it's about flowers is of course something that inspires me enormously. So I started this design full of enthusiasm and made a lot of different styles.
And this is the one that was finally chosen. A good choice, I must say, because it reflects very well the atmosphere of the not too sophisticate flowers this client is working with. By the way, this client is my very precious niece and I'm very thankful that I could work for her! The final design is carried out in negative, white on dark grey. Below you can see the business card. It turned out beautiful, don't you think?
