These are the illustrations of today! And Marco Melgrati is the illustrator behind them. He’s currently living in Mexico painting for Italian, Mexican or American magazines. He’s got a charming paint brush and constructing visuals, but he’s also got something more: an eye for the current reality that we’re living in.
These are a perfect mix of history, present, past and future. The message these illustrations convey is really powerful and relatable. They play with our modern way of life and incite us to do something about it. Allegories, powerful visuals, contradictions, cynicism, realness, fantasy, these illustrations’ got it all: a prince charming saving the lady stranded in a far-away tower by flying on a credit card; a sad artist painting the perfect Instagram picture; a lady cleaning the writings from a book while an armed soldier is seeing that she’s doing a good job.
