Inspiring Illustrations in the Style of Alphonse Mucha.


Everything could and should be art. These words describe the Art Nouveau style in the best possible way. It was also called New Art (the direct translation from French) that implied the idea of total art and was focused on the aesthetics of nature. This movement was strongly influenced by Alphonse Mucha, the Czech artist whose decorative posters have become a kind of trademark and the synonym for the Art Nouveau. Once seen, his works can’t be forgotten. They impress with the twisting ornaments full of lines and curvilinear details, sensuous feminine silhouettes in light dresses with curly hair and subtle light. These highly asymmetrical shapes and ethereal figures give an opportunity to the viewer to deep in the natural beauty and to admire it. Alphonse Mucha was one of the most spectacular artists from this movement and had a number of followers. His stunning and symbolic artworks have become the priceless legacy and it is no wonder that today we run into CG interpretations of his works here and there.

The presented here illustrations are created by contemporary CG artists in the style of Alphonse Mucha. They are distinguished by the motifs that include arabesque, floral patterns, feminine silhouettes and the unsurpassed fleur of Art Nouveau. Let’s start and admire the art of nature and beauty.
