André Brik was born a misfit in the conservative city of Curitiba Brazil in 1972. Architect, illustrator and art director, studied typography and graphic design at the School of Visual Arts and at Parsons School of Design - NY.
In his works, there is some of the 1920’s sachplakat graphic style and polish posters with their clean lines and flat contrasting background colors, their visual puns and wit and subtle irony. There is also nonsense, humor, counterculture, surrealism, dada and punk rock.
The ideas are born from the observation of colors and shapes of the everyday objects. Then the artist begins a long process of sketching to deconstruct and recombine elements, colors, and meanings. Finally, a careful selection of outcoming ideas is chosen to be digitally developed, painted and finished as a graphic art illustration.
