Andre Brik

Curitiba, Brazil

Andre Brik was born in Curitiba, Brazil in 1972. Architect, illustrator, and art director, he also studied typography and graphic design at the School of Visual Arts and at Parsons School of Design in New York.

In his works, you can find some of the 1920’s Plakatstil 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, dada, surrealism, and punk rock. The ideas are born from the observation of the elements of everyday objects. Then the artist begins a long process of sketching to deconstruct and recombine shapes, colors, and meanings. Finally, a careful selection of outcoming ideas is chosen to be digitally developed, painted, and finished as a graphic art illustration.

9 artworks

I've been surfing since I was 11. I was never good at it, but it never stopped me from having some of the best feelings.

Just imagine the face I made after that.

Another thing that attracts me is the shapes and colors that only can be seen when we are surfing.

The surface of the water can be smooth like a blue […]

Geometric Redux Studies

8 artworks
from € 208

For the geometric redux reinterpretation homage series, I start observing the masterpiece painting in detail: the palette of colors used, the contrasts between light and shadow, the shades, and the shapes.

Then I sketch a lot, deconstructing the original composition in basic shapes and primary colors. I also use a support grid, a "flexible template" that helps me to find the simplification possibilities without limiting the creativity. Within this grid, I search for alignments, patterns, […]

Still Life is Not Dead

37 artworks
from € 160 to 770

My still-life ideas come up mainly with the observation of everyday things, sometimes during conversations, when I'm watching a movie,
or scrolling on social media. When I travel, on conversations, before bedtime. Sometimes during a more monotonous meeting. Some are childhood memories. Many times, an artwork appeared ready-made in front of my eyes while I'm cooking.

Because of my architectural background, I like to develop his ideas by making a lot of sketches. Drawing helps me play […]
