Not much is known of the Italian art nouveau illustrator, but his posters and drawings are utterly captivating. His most notable work would be the occultist calendar of black magic called Calendrier Magique that he created with Austen De Croze. A limited edition run of 777 were made to mark the year of magik in 1896. Coincidentally, this was the year the famous occultist Aleister Crowley decided to pursue mysticism and magik as well.

Here is April. Wonderfully stunning.

I’m blown away. Also doesn’t that look like the Yves St Laurent logo in the bottom right corner above? A little maybe..

October is a bit creepy.

That pink and the black blew me away.

This man had extreme talent. This one below is beautiful as well. Makes me wonder if he might be the artist who did the eccentric poster from this post. Looks like similar writing!

Can’t find any information about this artist but I am in love with their texturized, pattern-rich style. Colours are muted yet bold, and there’s a feeling of movement and vastness in nearly every piece.

This one’s called ‘MindScape’. Totally brilliant.

Stunning. Pretty sure they are paintings as I was seeing some clear brush strokes in some other work. If anyone has any info on the artist shout it out.

Straight from the source I say. This is why I love abstract paintings; they defy definition and just go straight to the ‘point’ ‘essence’ or whatever it is that moves in us.

I love this one. That red shape in the middle just doesn’t care.

This one is subtle but beautiful. I love not knowing why I love it. Like a zen koan it just is.
