Pattern Posters by Luis Alves

I can’t remember how I came across this artist and his works, but it was meant to be!

At first the images looked quite simple, but the patterns are actually really intricate and complex.

Even though there is a lot going on with the patterns and colour tones, I think the colour palates he uses keep the pictures from looking overcrowded.

I feel like lines can be very restricting, but these pieces flow really nicely and the backgrounds look like they could just go on.

What I like most about his works is that they are done by hand, as he is an illustrator.

I can definitely see my doodles developing into something similar.
