I just love illustration and pop-art. Simple lines with blocks of one colors have a strange attraction for me. Pablo Lobato’s illustrations of famous celebrities (movie stars and musicians) are the coolest interpretations of this art form.

As Charley Parker wrote,
Pablo… has an uncanny ability to distill the essence of a likeness out of starkly graphic geometric shapes.
The artist’s work has been featured in the New Yorker, Time, Rolling Stone magazine, Cosmopolitan German and many more. Pablo Lobato lives and works in Argentina.
