Riccardo Guasco Italian Illustrator, designer, painter, cartoonist, teacher …

November 26, 2012

Riccardo Guasco is a talented Italian creative who works in many different forms. Watercolour portraits.

Mid century jazz inspired elements here.

And a contemporary ‘nod’ to Picasso, Henry Moore, Russian Avant-Garde and more.

These simplistic illustrations have a beautiful chalky feel to them.

Beautiful colourations and shapes.

Riccardo is also a graphic designer.

He can turn his hand, or rather ‘brush’ to some fine Japanese calligraphy.

Create some amazing images showing how people connect.

Even his sketchbooks are works of art ! Wow this guy has such control over his line.

He says ” I always attended art schools and the passion for drawing has been with me almost since I was born. When a purple marker contested as a cooking spoon, drew a large circle on a sheet of paper. That day I realized that inside that circle could hide a world, and I was excited to get it out and make it visible to myself and to others. Initially it was a discovery, a gift. I think I have developed over time a special taste and pleasure in communicating with the images. This gift is a pressing need, which led me to “prove” any form of narration through the signs and colour comics, illustration, art, artwork, all ways to bring elements of that silent world made only of signs, but maybe hiding great potential.”

Some more sketchbook pages here or you can pick up a print here.
