Conceptual Illustrations by Andrea Ucini

Illustrator Andrea Ucini creates conceptual images that are inspired by everyday life. The self-taught Italian illustrator draws scenes which reveal hidden plot lines, adding a conceptual twist to his minimalistic imagery.

Born in Italy, Andrea Ucini is a conceptual freelance illustrator who lives and works in Denmark. Before he has started his career as a professional illustrator, he has graduated in classical piano and composition from the Music Academy of Florence. Until today, music is still a great form of expression along with drawing, which helps him to explore different ideas of how concepts and emotions can be decoded.

Ucini’s wish is to present any critical topic with a humorous tone primarily illustrative. To simplify a story of a few lines or a thousand pages in a single illustration. He finds this a magnificent creative challenge to work with.

Currently represented by the Anna Goodson Illustration Agency, he has been commissioned by Wired, Scientific American and John Hopkins University among others. “The thing I enjoy most is the challenge proposed when I receive the article to illustrate. The creative part and when the idea takes shape is almost like a drug,” explains Andrea. “Thinking and processing the perfect visual version, in which all these words can be melted in an image is priceless!” Check out his Instagram for more.
