As every season, we collaborate with artists from all over the world and for the capsule of the new spring-summer collection we have the humour and bold illustration of Yeye Weller.
The style of this artist and illustrator from Munster (Germany) is characterised by a touch of humour, bright colour combinations and a clean and pure graphic design. His funny/weird characters are an essential part of his amazing universe. His cartoonish style of colourful illustration depicts a range of characters – some human, some animal and some numerical, where they all have in common a vibrant, almost garish colour palette that is guaranteed to catch the viewers’ attention.
«I simply draw things that I think are beautiful and that will make the viewer happy»
His work or the style of his illustrations is reminiscent of 1930s cartoons and food packaging illustrations from the 1960s, such as Max Fleischer or Walt Disney. His main influences and references: “Something that really impressed and influenced me was the yellow submarine in the Beatles film, designed by the German illustrator Heinz Edelmann. I’ve watched that film over a hundred times and it’s still one of my favourites. I also watch more contemporary cartoons like the Simpsons”. ““I love colour, mood and balance. These are the three necessities of my work. I don’t have a clever message, my illustrations come as they are: happy, colourful and stupid.”
