In search of meaning and emotion

Hello, my name is Vanja (pronounced "Vanya") BASIC and I am a freelance graphic designer and illustrator in Bordeaux in France.

For me, drawing is a source of freedom and sharing. Each blank sheet of paper is a safe space for me to connect with myself and others from a very young age.

From 8 to 20 years old, I took drawing and oil painting classes to help me develop my technique. Very dreamy, I spent time drawing my future house at the time. This interest in our interaction with the environment pushed me towards a BTS In Space Design. I continued my studies with a Bachelor's degree, then a Master's degree in Global Design and Eco-design, where I discovered graphic design. A discipline that re-connected me to art and made me realize that visual communication was particularly close to my heart.

The meaning of a visual, its stakes, the emotion and the story that are able to emerge from it... The image contains a lot, in a very synthetic way. It fascinates me in that.
Today, I put my sensitivity and the power of visual communication at the service of the brand image of companies, but also of the cultural and artistic world. My aspiration: to express their uniqueness so that they can radiate better, and thus, create a connection with others. I also take orders for drawn portraits and tailor-made art projects from individuals - always a lot of love in these so personal works. And as you already know, I also sell my illustrations!

My favorite subjects are the face and hands; I like their expressive and unique character. They are always amplified by the themes that fascinate me on a daily basis: feelings, psychology, nature, society, culture... With each creation, I try to convey a message in the most direct and poetic way at the same time. Indian ink is at the heart of my illustrations. This technique allows me to draw with spontaneity and refers me to two influences that are dear to me, Impressionism and Expressionism. As for my coloring, they are digital and in the form of flat or quite vivid collages, in a Pop Art spirit. I feel myself in this contrast between letting go and control, subtlety and simplicity, and able to achieve what I love most about art: capturing an emotion.
