Fernando Volken Togni - Illustration

Very fun work from Brazilian illustrator Fernando Volken Togni. The color palettes for these illustrations are perfect — they draw me right in. I love Fernando’s simple, super graphic, super bold, and super tasty illustration style. That peacock is dying to be made into a print.

I’ve been a fan for a while now — can’t wait to see more.

Gorgeous graphics, this kind of folk inspired art seems to be making a real come back and with good reason I say!

è inutile, io provo a condividere i vostri post su facebook, ma l’anteprima non riesce a visualizzare le immagini del post…

Awsome color! Id really like to see the green, orange and blue pattern on a quilt!

Gorgeous! It reminds me a bit of Sanna Annukka and Janine Rewell.

Mat, my thoughts exactly!

Very similar to Sanna Anukka!

I agree, print please! I love how this has a touch of traditional Brazillian tea-towel esq motifs—yet still modern at the same time. Bravo. Love your site, thanks.

I agree, print please! Love the traditional Brazilian tea-towel-esq motifs. Great blog, love your eye, thanks!

These are so beautiful! For someone who works very realistic this is quite an inspiration to remember that how powerful a graphic approach can be- thank for sharing!

I am sorry, I love sanna annukka artwork, she’s a godess, but I intend to do my illustrations based on daily experiences with my intuiition and geometrical shapes.

I am sorry, I love sanna annukka artwork, she’s a godess of illustration, and inspired me in the beginning, specially with keane’s artwork, but I intend to do my illustrations based on daily experiences and memories, with my intuiition and my basic geometrical shapes.

I love these! They remind me so much of my childhood in Pennsylvania and the PA Dutch artwork on barns, etc. A nice modern take that would be so nice in my kitchen.

Absolutely wrong to compare with Annukka’s work! Problem happens when people see very little and know very little and the jump to conclusions. There are several artists and designers who work in similar styles and languages. But since Sana Annukka is absurdly popular (and since these commentators may have seen just her works)…such irresponsible comments spring from time to time. From what I see here of Togni’s works, this is a completely different language…And while in Annukka’s works, however flat they appear, the space still has 3 co-ordinates, Togni has flattened the space, so much that it function almost like syntax here…Yes, this is almost like an ideographic language, where together the motifs and the space surrounding it achieve a kind of hieroglyphic quality. Elements interact not in space but in a relation of meanings. And even if Togni is inspired by Annukka & other artists working in a similar style, this is step forward, I believe…
