Von is a London based illustrator running his own studio “HelloVon” since 2006. Beside his work for clients such as Nike, Penguin and The New Yorker he develops some interesting personal projects. “Elsewhere”, his last exhibition, consist of a series of graphite and pencil drawings depicting lost in thought subjects. Inspired by real people totally enveloped in their own thinking and feelings, seen in central London, “Elsewhere” seems to catch those moments, so rare and almost disappearing in our busy and hyper connected society, and preserve them as a memory. If not properly obscure, these portraits sure are really magnetic. For an instant, you can be lost together with the subjects of these series.
