“Don’t try to be good, just try to be different!” A twist on the words of Arthur Freed, now in a composition by one of the most brilliant graphic designers, Elia Colombo, aka Gebe. Sophisticated humor and deep psychological thoughts dwell deep around each digital art piece by Italian talent. Lately, artist seems to be interested in portraying the effects on the human mind caused by somehow imposed standard schooling, as well as the growing impact social media has on our self-perception. Freelance designer, illustrator, philosopher, a truly creative mind breaks down his view on certain topics using humor as a main appealing fragment making his art perfectly balanced between criticism and entertainment. “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication,” words by Leonardo da Vinci that Gebe finds very close to his heart, as he seeks for constant perfection in simplicity. If you are drawn in these amazing conceptual illustrations make sure to follow Elia Colombo on his Instagram.
