I found Willian Santiago through my Pinterest feed a couple of weeks ago! One of his illustrations popped up and I kept scrolling. I immediately loved his graphical, colourful style and went on to find more of his artwork.
Willian Santiago is a freelance illustrator designer. Working in his home country of Brazil, Londrina. He studied and graduated in graphic design and focused on illustration. Genres that Willian have worked in fashion, editorial and children’s illustration. Another artist that does a lot of digital work as well as the traditional techniques. His work has hints of surrealism and heavily influenced by geometrical elements.
He draws inspiration mostly, from the rich culture of his surroundings in Brazil. Santiago’s work reflects the vibrant diversity with the use of bold colours and patterns in his art. Colour plays an important part in his paintings. He states “…colour arouses different feelings in people. I ultimately want my work to create feelings of joy.” Another source of inspiration is the illustrator Elfandiary from Indonesia.
