The Colors Of Alberto Cerriteño

The Colors Of Alberto Cerriteño

On the recommendation of COLOURlovers' member Caori, we're having a look at the color compositions of Alberto Cerriteño. Alberto is a Mexican illustrator and designer based in Portland, Oregon, whose expressive characters and desaturated palettes meld together to create a striking, beautiful and cohesive illustrative style.

Strongly inspired by urban vinyl toys, alternative cartoons, and the pop surrealism movement, Alberto Cerriteño has developed his own very personal technique and style, having always present a delicate hints of traditional Mexican artistic influences in his management of rich textures and decorative patterns. These contrast strikingly with the blending of desaturated colors and ink, sometimes featuring a vintage coffee finish.
