It’s not so easy to choose your favorite illustration among the thousands realized by the artist Fabian Ciraolo, his work is so amazing that I found it difficult to pick some photos and ruling out others. The artist’s work is aimed to brush up famous characters from the past and to depict them on his paintings wearing stunning outfits with floral and geometric textures.
Therefore we can find heroes from comics (defined by Fabian as Old school heroes) dressed with contemporary clothes within unlikely dreamy situations or hilarious scenes. His work is so perfect balanced in some of his pieces, handmade artworks defile digital scenes, they give birth to a parallel universe of characters transformed in unexpected new fashion victims.
We can find the subjects close to sheep or riding a tandem bicycle, while singers as Jem and the Holograms turn into models coming from a défilé. He also depicts girls seated in rooms full of sweets with “cupcake figures” in their mind.
I really love both the colors and the subjects than the patterns and the technique, there’s a very high quality of details that make every piece worth for contemplation and inspiration for an imaginary personal look.
