Thomas Danthony's minimalist illustrations that play with light to create stylish narratives

in Inspiration / Illustration

Thomas Danthony is a French artist based in London whose work often contains a narrative enhanced with a clever use of light that allows the images to tell a story and really make you think.

With a client list boasting Google, The New York Times, Netflix and Nokia, his instantly recognisable style is very much in demand. Recent projects include cover illustrations for Popshot Magazine and an animated movie poster for Ray Ban.

Thomas has also been developing his painting over the last few years, leading to his first solo show in Paris in 2015 at the Sergeant Paper gallery. A recent show entitled Modern Shapes exhibited at Tictail Market in New York last month, inspired by the lakes of Southern Switzerland.

If you love his work, you can purchase originals or prints from his online shop. In the meantime, enjoy following his latest illustrations on Instagram or visit his website at www.thomasdanthony.com.
