Andrea Ucini’s conceptual illustrations play with perspective

Illustrator Andrea Ucini creates conceptual images that are inspired by everyday life. “In each illustration I try to create as much as possible, without letting the concept be expressed through an image too distant from reality,” explains Andrea. Currently represented by the Anna Goodson Illustration Agency, he has been commissioned by Wired, Scientific American and John Hopkins University among others. “The thing I enjoy most is the challenge proposed when I receive the article to illustrate. The creative part and when the idea takes shape is almost like a drug,” explains Andrea. “Thinking and processing the perfect visual version, in which all these words can be melted in an image is priceless!”

The Italian-born, Denmark-based illustrator’s intention with each project is to “reach the widest spectrum of visual understanding”. He achieves this through neat compositions, precise linework and clean textures, which come together to form expressive illustrations. “What I try to communicate is my version of real life with a dash of humour,” says Andrea. “I try to create something that can be understood by both people who know nothing about the topic they are reading and those who are most informed.”
