Diesel Punk in the SF
Alejandro Burdisio is an Argentinian illustrator and designer. Burda, as his name suggests, developed his talents as an illustrator at the same time as his main professional activity; in fact, for more than twenty years he has been working as an architect-illustrator in his architectural design studio.
Not satisfied with the hyperrealistic images he produces for his work, he decided to use his free time to create creative digital images. His first inspiration comes from the science fiction work of Juan Giménez, which leads him to create futuristic scenes that engage the mind through the fusion of pure imagination and the real elements of the everyday world.
He continues with architecture, through which he learns perspective, to understand space and to recognize what surrounds him: His city. He then begins to develop his sense of observation and to grasp the details of everything around him. And this means not only visually, but also and above all conceptually. In fact, one of the main teachings that Burda wants to transmit to his students is to always go beneath the surface of things, to be aware of what surrounds them, including the socio-political and economic connotations of the reality in which we live.
It is all these elements that contribute to making Burda’s works a unique science fiction universe, reminiscent of different arctic currents, diesel punk, 70’s SF, and many others. We fell completely in love with this unique graphic style and the universe that is being created before our eyes.
