If Super Heroes Were Hipsters
Fabian Ciraolo is an illustrator from Santiago, Chile. His work is mesmerizing, witty and riddled with parody, which is exactly why we love it. Ciralolo’s collection of super heros and villains dressed up as hipsters are a big hit. The colourful and textured backgrounds are reminiscent of 70s psychedelic imagery in terms of luminosity and colourfield, but also have a hint of 80s flare to them – maybe the random imagery and floating-in-outer-space backgrounds that showed up in nearly every 1980s music video. The nostalgic nature of the backgrounds and illustration style make the subject matter pop, and this collection of super heroes as hipsters gets a major WHOA-worthy high five.
