Franco Égalité
The Dancers


Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
This assignment was made as a creative challenge where my goal was to develop my own personal shape language. I used as my main source of inspiration the bodies of dancers because their poses would push my shapes to be more expressive and dynamic while remaining organic and structured. In the end, this challenge was the kickstart for me to work with shapes that can speak/express something.

How was the illustration used:
These illustrations were at first paintings that were digitally recreated to then be for sale as prints and other derived products.

How did you make this work:
Digitally using Adobe Photoshop and Procetate. The originals paintings were made with acrylics on wood canvases
