I first came across Henning Wagenbreth when he popped up on my explore feed and I have to say Instagram did well when picking this one for me. Bold, bright and black lines - that's my motto when it comes to illustrating too.
I then discovered he was actually a professor of illustration at the University of Arts in Berlin and was rather pleasantly surprised. It's great to see a lecturer using Instagram to show off current pieces (a lesson in social media to all his students) and Wagenbreth does not disappoint. His work is current but with some old school German influences in colour and shape. The yellow and green block combinations are a personal favourite. He uses a variety of techniques such as linocut, vector drawings, pen and ink, geometric shapes and distorted perspectives to make slightly more abstract imagery. I also came across this quirky little video which I rather enjoyed so I hope you do too!
