Alessandro Gottardo aka Shout is an Italian artist, illustrator and designer. His very simple and surreal ‘meaning of life’ images are very carefully controlled, generally amusing, but also very poignant. He uses a very limited palette, flat colours and thin lines, playing with visual contrasts in size and different perspectives.
