A touch of the unreal – paper art by Bombo!

Bombo! (AKA Maurizio Santucci) was born in Barga, outside of Lucca, Italy, where he still lives and works. He attended ISIA design school in Florence, Italy from 2000 to 2004. After two years working in advertising agencies, he became a freelance illustrator. He also writes and illustrates short comic books. In 2008 he won the award for Illustratori Italiani Annual 2008. It leaves no doubt that his work is featured in many exhibitions and publications.

Bombo! constructs his images from paper cut-outs and reworks the colors and textures digitally, playing with contrast and shapes to breathe life into his fantastic creations. He always tries to generate surprise by adding a touch of the unreal to his situations and characters, which seem to exist outside of time and space. His works are charismatic, projecting ephemeral feelings and quirky characters.

With work done for Rolling Stone, Vodafone and Mini Atypica International and many more. I recommend that you take a look at his portfolio where you will find some truly amazing work >> Bomboland
