Dreamy Silhouettes by Matteo Nangeroni

Surreal masterpieces incorporating dot work, subtle color, and hints of geometry.

It’s always interesting to see an artist’s style develop over the years. Sometimes this means going experimental and creating new and innovative takes on illustrative work, and other times honing and perfecting their signature style. Most of the time, both routes are done by experimenting with three key factors: color, subject, and technique. 

An illustrative artist, Nangeroni has seen a renaissance in his signature style in recent years. His early career saw a heavy use of geometric and animal influences, often incorporating the two, eventually lessening the geometric use, opting instead for touches of color and bits of line work. Most recently, he’s all but dropped the color, instead focusing on clean surrealist techniques, sketchy-illustrative pieces, and intricate dot work with small nods to his past geometric work, all of which can be seen in his beautiful scenic silhouettes. 

So whether you’re a surrealism enthusiast, a dot and line work fanatic, or prefer your color as more of a punctuation than anything, Nangeroni might be the artist for you. He’s based out of Italy, but travels frequently throughout Europe, and will be guesting in Miami early next year. Fine lines, silhouettes, and exceptional execution, Nangeroni’s work is dreamy as fuck.
