French illustrator Yann Kebbi is a mixed media artist with a quick, expressive style. His colorful illustrations are busy and full of life. Loose lines and smudges suggest his characters’ dynamic movement as they experience the extremes of human emotion (frustration, panic, joy, mania, apathy) from within his urban landscapes. Kebbi executes extreme care in adding only the necessary to his drawings, adding emphasis in some areas while allowing the viewer’s imagination to fill in others. Yann Kebbi’s editorial illustrations can be found in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and many other credible news publications in North America and Europe. He is represented by Heart Agency in New York and London.
