Deriving his inspiration from music, fashion & lifestyle universes, Riga based illustrator Sergio Laskin aka Studio 43 invites the viewer into poppy settings full of glitz, grunge and glamour. His sexy girls are easily recognizable as 70s candy darlings, ‘80s pop princesses and 90s riot grrrls.
For vector artist and graphic designer Sergio Laskin, popular culture is the eternal frontier. His bright, fun illustrations are a synthesis of the seventies, eighties & nineties; the era of possibilities that had it all: pop glam & glitter, retro and grunge, style, substance and loads of fun.
Laskin’s illustrations can range from commercial to edgy and arty. The strength of his vector artworks are articulated in bright colors and his typical realistic but fantasy driven style of execution. Sergio skillfully projects loads of attitude onto his sexy/trendy/no-nonsense personages.
You can see more of his fun ‘n’ funky “babes in toy land” on the amazing Studio 43 website, www.studio-43.org. On top of Laskin’s personal work, you can discover a wide range of poster artworks, interior designs and a showcase of his corporate identity and branding portfolio.
