An interview with Italian fashion illustrator Giulio Iurissevich
It’s been a long while now since my last interview post here, and couple days ago I have received an email from someone who has very interesting work and highly talented.
Everyone, please meet Italian fashion illustrator Giulio Iurissevich. Since 1998, his work has made appearances around the world, including his native Italy, Europe, the United States, China and Japan. Below is my interview with Giulio.
Can you tell a brief of your biography and how you become interested in drawing and become an illustrator?
I found a way to do what I’m doing after several different experiences doing many different jobs. I’ve always loved the images, of any kind and I always loved drawing and photograph. At one point has become a natural need to illustrate and doing images
What is your personal opinion about the world of illustration art in general?
I do not have a precise idea about it. I am interested in doing what I love right now, and I like to see that other people love to make pictures like me.
This world is full of different people living things in its own way, doing things for different reasons, sometimes with aspirations and goals. I do not think it is a world different from many other and the world in general.
Do you have any worldwide well known famous illustrators that influence you and your style of work?
I gave a lot of energy from the work of Daniel Zezelj, I consider he a genius and one of the greatest artists I have ever known. His work has given me courage, energy and enthusiasm. All my experiences were then sedimented in my work , my passion for music, street art, the Art Nouveau, artists like Salvador Dali, Schiele, Klimt, Pollock, Basquiat, and many others
Where you’re studying right now or a history of your art/design education if any?
I am self taught
Are you a member of any design/art community/organization, if yes what’s the organization name and since when you become a member?
Do you have any personal favorite of your own illustration/drawing that you consider as the masterpiece of your work and why it is being so special?
I honestly do not know. what I like is what arises when there are no calculations, when there are no goals, and what I’m really comes out. These Are definitely my best pieces.
