Giulio Iurissevich Fashion illustrations, an art-form itself
At first it was just seen as an art-form, confined tot Giulo’s studio itself. But the illustrations of the Italian artist are now recognised as an art-form itself. There are hundreds of thousands artists and it is very hard to stand out, but Giulio Lurissevich you simply can’t miss, because his work is so different from all the others. Full of life, movement and exploding with colors. It it a world on his own inspired by flowers, wildlife and fashion.
Giulio started in 1998, and since then he has crossed the borders of whole western Europe, the US, to China and Japan. He is passionate and a little mad, but everyone loves him. Recently Gulio was interviewed by Lone Wolf magazine. Read more about the sincere genuine and wonderful person behind the artist in the interview below. Text courtesy of LoneWolf.com. Giulio Iurissevich’s work is for sale at Arte Limited.
LONE WOLF INTERVIEW
Where were you born and raised as a young child?
I was born and raised in Italy, in Pordenone. In the North East.
Describe how you make art.
Art is a sort of absence. When I stop thinking and speaking the image grows. The best images are the ones that pop up without calculation, when the noise of thought decreases
What do you hope to tell people about your work and through your work?
Nothing. My work is me, what I really am, what I have inside.
What is your creative process like?
It changes depending on whether the work is commissioned or not. If it is commissioned I read the brief and follow the instructions of the art director. If not, I start to draw something, then the work takes the form. I don’t know how.
If you could meet anyone, alive or that has passed away, who would it be and why?
My mom, she passed away. I missed her.
Outside of illustration, what are the things that get you up every morning?
First of all my dogs: Ben and Dee Dee. Then there’s music, jogging, swimming at the beach, reading books. My biggest obsession is to waste my life on trifles
Who are the people you admire most?
People who look inside themselves, who do not do what others want, instead seeking their own way.
Describe your dream life?
Do what I love living with the people I love.
What has been the biggest change in illustration since you first started in 1998?
Now the world is full of image makers!
If you had the opportunity to sit and illustrate a portrait of only one person, who would it be?
I don’t know…Marylin Manson? LOL
What do you think is the biggest misconception about being an illustrator?
Here in Italy some people do not know what an illustrator does!
You have mentioned that you are a skater, do you ever think about illustrating art work for skateboards?
Yes I did in the past , I hope to repeat the experience in the future
