Elsa Martino is a young graphic designer, illustrator and art director based in Paris.
Her style is mainly defined by very vivid flat colors and simple curves. In a very minimalist setting, she seeks above all to draw attention to emotions and attitudes by representing everyday moments. She does not linger on the details of features and faces but prefers to focus on the outfits and curves of her characters.
Elsa draws her inspiration from the colors of the 80-90's, from fashion magazines for the exaggerated postures as well as everyday objects and moments, but also from hip-hop culture in terms of attitudes for the characters she represents. The young illustrator mainly likes to draw women, still life as well as the ups and downs of everyday life. For her, illustration represents a way to express herself.
