Surreal Artist Illustrates His Work In A Way That Makes You Think Outside The Box (20 Pics)

Published 10 months ago

French artist, Guy Billout, is well-known for his thought-provoking artwork that almost seem to defy the laws the logic. His style is characterised by clean, spare and precise brushstrokes that depict a world parallel to our own with an element of surrealism. His characters often remain composed in the face of impending doom and his art is infused with dark humour and optimism.  

Guy Billout was born and educated in France, however, he moved to New York City in 1969 where he embarked on a career in advertising. On gaining fame after being published in the New York Magazine, Guy was able to express his own creativity more freely in his illustrations, leading to the development of his current style. In 2016, this talented artist was even inducted into the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame, where he was described as “more than an illustrator, a compassionate poet of the absurd.” In fact, you can check out some of his famous works in the gallery below to decide for yourself if this does indeed, ring true.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
