The Serene Art Of Gelrev Ongbico

Gelrev Ongbico is a humble illustrator from the Phillipines who caught our eye with his wonderfully serene illustrations of nature, a large source of inspiration for the artist. The self taught illustrator has embraced the 'less is more' mindset, creating wonderful scenes without getting too caught up in rendering and detail, instead relying on more graphic representations of his subject matter. He also couples that with a wonderful use of negative space, which helps draw the eye to where it counts.

As an aspiring magazine illustrator, I definitely think that Gelrev has a bright career ahead of him with his great aesthetics, which are somewhat reminiscent of classical illustrated children's books with a modern flair. Check out more of his excellent work after the break!
