Design and Illustration. Two of a kind
Some fields “talk” to each other. Like eyes do. Painting and drawing, architecture and engineering, maths and chemistry or design and illustration. Like the left eye and the right eye. When these fields are together they are two faces of the same coin butalways slipping from one side to another trying to cooperate in the same adventure for the drawing: to fill a page together with letters and empty areas. Design and illustration merge with a single purpose: to built a storytelling. Contemporary architecture talks of “emptiness” when it want to study the relationship between buildings, squares, gardens, streets and empty spots perceived by walkers that randomly are finding new places, new volumes, new lights and new sensations. If we change the word “art” by “illustration” and “painting” by “drawing” we can easily borrow and adapt the sentence of the great painter Frank Stella when he writes “after all, the aim of art is to create space (S) within wich the subjects of painting can live”.
