Illo's new signing... Irene Bofill Garcia
Illo Agency welcomes new signing Irene Bofill Garcia to our agency this week!
Irene caught our eye through her whimsical illustrations and beautiful colour palette that she has learn from her biggest inspiration, her mother, since she was young. To find out more about Irene please see her Q&A below that we carried out earlier this week.
Q: We are really excited to have you on board Irene, can you tell us about who some of your artistic inspirations are?
A: My mother is my greatest inspiration. She is a painter and illustrator, so I grew up surrounded by her amazing paintings. She taught be about colour combinations, composition and loving art in general! Other artistic inspirations that I love are Mattotti, Shaun Tan, Alicia Baladan, Simoe Rea, Violeta Lópiz to name just a few!
Q: Clearly the talent runs in the family! Can you describe your style in your own words?
A: Difficult question... I do not think I have a single style, it adapts depending on the project or public I am addressing to, but I am always looking to produce a range of effects or emotions for the observer. Colourful and whimsical could be some key features that connect all my work.
Q: We love the emotion in your work, and the colours that you use also. So, what do you get up to in your spare time?
A: I love nature, so I enjoy hiking or going to the beach, spending time with my boyfriend, family and friends and travelling whenever possible!
Q: You can see your love of nature come through in your work. What is your favourite thing to Illustrate?
A: Since I was a child, I have always loved cats, and also illustrating them. I also enjoy illustrating women, animals, marine themes, dreamlike and fantasy elements.
Q: We are really excited to have you on board, what made you sign with us at Illo?
A: My goal is to grow up more as an illustrator and I think that this will be possible with Illo's coaching and support. I am excited to work in challenging prjects, and work with new clients and various areas that my art may fit.
