Oriol Vidal Illustration

July 17, 2017

Oriol Vidal is an illustrator/storyboard artist based in Barcelona. Like most successful artists these days, he has a few different styles to his work. One of his advertising styles works with a combination of photography, figures and dramatic lighting. A couple of these reminded me of Starsky and Hutch … perhaps it’s the car !

Speed and adventure.

There’s also plenty of beautiful textures in Oriol’s work, which help to bring them to life in such a magical way.

I think he likes pattern and plain too.

Then there’s his young adult style. Again teenager life, adventure and suspense are the main focuses. Those creatures in the wood are fabulously eerie.

Great textures and lighting throughout.

Even in an old famous five style, mystery adventure, these black and white illustrations offer superb snapshots into the narrative and tension of the story.

Finally there’s his fun for the under fives look. Cute, rounded with bright flat colours.

Such a talented and busy illustrator, you can check out a few answers to questions over at Creative Fluff Magazine.

    Thanks for bringing another great artist to my attention. The compositions are really strong and, as is so often the case with me, I am drawn to the pieces with the limited colour palettes. I love the use of visual texture too. Really inspirational.

    What a unique, artful take on reality! Love ’em! I really am struck by that fourth car/following tail lights/night–the depth, the perspective, the mood. And FYI, that is moi with her nose pressed against the Cartier display window… 😉 Really cool work.
