Alê Abreu

I cannot go to Bologna Children's Illustration festival this year and in order to compensate and cheer myself up for missing this wonderful annual event, I am going to virtually attend and research as much as I can online. Brazil is this years guest of honour  country, and so I am going to bring you a selection of Brazilian illustrators starting with Alê Abreu
Alê Abreu works as an illustrator and animator. Here I have selected some of his abstract paintings and it is this abstract, loose layered style, that for me produces some of his most interesting illustration work because of its textures, effects and the division of the pictorial plain.
