An Advertised Evolution
Bernard Villemot's work is pleasure for my eyes.
His use of bold thick lines with strong and vibrant colours give such a dynamic edge to all his work. Villemot's aesthetic is unmistakably his; the smooth, curved lines, feminine almond shaped limbs, witty&comical compositions and playful use of form, all build such powerfully suscessful images.
It is not doubt that Villemot is one of my favorite illustrators and graphic designers. I can see his love of art and design though his works; with suggested inspirations from artists like Matisse and Picasso, and the art movements of Surrealism and Fauvism. Villemot is probably most known for his posters for Orangina, Bally Shoes, Perrier and Air France.
......I only wish that advertisements now could be as enjoyable as Villemot's!
