About

Hi!

I’m Nico Pearleyes, freelance illustrator currently working and living in France.

I’m available to work and collaborate on various projects. Feel free to contact me on social medias or send me a message in the get in touch section if you have any request. I’d be glad to exchange with you!

I’ve illustrated for websites, companies and books so far and I wish to further expand my skills with new challenges.

Also I am interested with environmental issues. They deserve a better exposure to the public and I believe visual arts can contribute a lot here. So if you have any project related to human ecology, environmental health, sustainability, biodiversity, or even anthropology, please contact me.

With a special focus on atmospheres, colors and lightning in compositions, my illustrations often represent landscapes or sceneries with characters. They look like movie scenes or shots that could be taken by a reporter or an anthropologist traveling parallel worlds…Drawing inspiration from comic artists and modernist painters like Magritte or Hopper, I use light and color tones to highlight a vivid and lively feel. My work can also include abstract elements, geometrical shapes and mysterious objects evoking surrealist and philosophical fantasies.
