The Illustration Work of Michael Molfetas

I love coming across new work that puts a unique spin on illustration rooted in abstraction. Brooklyn-based Illustrator Michael Molfetas has a smart and reduced graphic style that has one foot in the Keith Haring school of free-form intuitive linework and the other in character-based idiosyncrasy.

Michael’s characters have a weirdness about them that is certainly in part due to their abstract vibes but also is evocative of contemporary artists with leanings toward comic art like Andy Rementer. I particularly like Michael’s forays into anthropomorphized shapes, sticking googly eyes on a funky pipe apparatus or a blobby thing that kind of looks like both a pigeon and a water faucet.

Michael has an ongoing project where he’s illustrating an apple every day, with some really creative and varied experiments so far. Check out more of his work here.
