Illustration We Love: Lili des Bellons

Here’s some dazzling artwork by Parisian illustrator and graphic artist Lili des Bellons.

Lili des Bellons is something of a mysterious character – there isn’t much information about him/her on lilidesbellons.com, and several blogs (including one of our favourites, it’s nice that) have assumed that Lili is a woman, but we’re pretty sure it’s the work of a man, Laurent Meriaux.

Looking through Lili’s website is a bit like entering a somewhat frightening futuristic universe peopled by strange characters going about their business in unsettling abstract landscapes. Spanish blog Coctel Demente summed up Lili’s style nicely: “If you are asleep you will wake up, if you‘re awake, you will dream to enter the world illustrated by Lili des Bellons.”

We love the use of a limited palette of colours, such as in the Blue series and Muro 10, at the same time it’s great when Lili just lets rip and uses all of the colours of the rainbow! We’ve only included a small sample of our favourites here so be sure to have a proper peruse at lilidesbellons.com.
