“Who?” you might think. Louis is a Dutch illustrator and designer who creates simple yet beautiful artwork. He creates geometrical ink designs, mostly black but sometimes with some subtle use of colour too. One fact about his work is that he works on old book covers. This is something that makes me, as a bibliophile (yes, that is a word), even more enthusiastic! You can check his work at his website, or his better updated Flickr account.
Last week, Louis won an art competition organised by Nike. Five artists were asked to design a piece to support the Dutch National Soccer Team during the World Cup, below you’ll find Louis’entry. People were asked to vote via this website and Louis’ work won deservingly. His piece of art is printed on a huge canvas and will be shown on the center spot during the first friendly match of The Netherlands (vs. Ghana) on the 1st of June.
