The Manchester-based artist Ollie Hirst unveils a universe of graphic, minimalist, striking illustrations, evoking the main issues of the contemporary world. From Coronavirus to feminist struggle to sea pollution, he tells us the great stories that humanity is living. Poetic drawings that prefer to show powerful details rather than raw reality. With hands, vegetal motifs, androgynous silhouettes, the artist mixes metaphor with science, the human body, and sharp colours. A moving work that has already appeared in The Washington Post, Financial Times, Adobe, WeTransfer, The Big Issue, and in Politico, for a series on Europe’s failure against Covid-19.
