ILLUSTRATION

Selected works by Sergiy Maidukov part.II

23/06/2016

Our previous feature on the Ukrainian illustrator Sergiy Maidukov‘s work was few years ago, and it’s time to take a peek at his latest creations. The man with a rich imagination and matching skill set to put it on paper shows no signs of slowing down, continuously producing work for an enviable client roster. Maidukov’s unique way of visualising an abstract concept and ability to produce high-quality work fast has landed him on top, and in front of ours, as well as many other eyes.2dedd935064335.572fa2750edd8

Mixing rich, earthy colors with geometric, over-exaggerated proportionate characters, along with rough and rugged textures, his work is uniquely characteristic, yet reminiscent of old Soviet poster design. Never quiet nor subtle, always demanding attention, the dynamic, almost electric compositions take up all the space given – and sometimes a little more, often spreading over the pages edge mixing the made-up with reality. Like a still photograph of a movie set, Maidukov illustrations showcase a situation full of action and emotion, whether a tragedy, comedy or drama.
