Homage to Villemot Series 2020
Benard Villemot was a French Graphic Artist. His iconic advertising images include brands such as Bally Shoes, Perrier, Orangina and Air France. The Homage to Villemot series has been inspired by Villemot’s amazing mastery of iconising ideas into graphic expression.
The bold lines and colours assemble into a powerful piece depicting the Tango Embrace as seen from above. As with Villemot’s work Doni is creating a simple line style that flows around and containing the bold colour blocks. However, Embrace – Homage to Villemot takes this one step further and masterfully generates shapes and forms of the dance as an action. The artist wills the dance to take place inside the embrace and although a moment captured the energy and passion within the forms allow the viewer to feel the dance and the emotions spilling beyond the moment.
Embrace – Homage to Villemot captures the sharing of an Embrace. Looking from above the world of dance can appear as a sea of swirling and sharing of movement. Creating infinite movement paths the dance whirls in eb and flow unique to partner dancing.
Know as one of the greatest poster painters Villemot’s style is iconic. His design is bold and full of movement as life. What more appropriate style to capture the essence of Tango.
A bold colour palette invites an embrace full of energy and life. The form contained within dominant dark outlines is full of movement and the heart of tango. The Homage to Villemot is a modern take of the iconic style of Villemot and a powerful statement for any wall.
