일러와 gif 파일로 표현한 인간의 심신


   뉴질랜드와 에스토니아에 본사를 둔 일러스트레이터 아이코 오잘라는 몸과 마음에 관한 진지한 기사를 보충하는 폭넓은 작업 포트폴리오를 자랑한다. 밝은 색상과 정의된 실루엣으로 구성된 그의 작품들은 강력한 메시지를 교묘하게 조각한 화려한 종이처럼 시각화하지만, 각각의 이미지는 실제로 디지털로 만들어 진다.

New Zealand and Estonia-based illustrator Eiko Ojala boasts a broad portfolio of work that often supplements serious articles about the body and mind. Consisting of bright colors and defined silhouettes, his works visualize powerful messages as artfully rendered layers of colorful paper, but there’s one catch—each image is actually created digitally.


Ojala’s textured 3D compositions will make you want to reach out and touch them. Each digital paper illustration is cleverly composed from layers of colorful shapes and trick-of-the-eye shadows and highlights. And Ojala’s work has more than just style; it has substance, too. His eye-catching approach has earned him many high-profile editorial commissions in some of the world’s top publications.


In a series for The Washington Post, Ojala visualized the mind of a child by layering images inside the silhouette of a boy’s profile. And in a gif for an article on heart attacks in The New York Times, the artist created a mesmerizing animation of a human heart beat. Layers of colored paper appear to flutter and pulsate along with the central “paper” heart’s pulse. No matter the concept, the talented illustrator is able to visualize complex ideas with his distinct minimal style.


You can see more of Ojala’s work on his website and Behance.
