The work of Vasilios Paspalis is really gratifying to look at. Paspalis, a Greek artist and Royal College of Art graduate, reworks traditional figurative illustration with muted colors and a modern sensibility. His attention to line and detail show both comfortable negative space and a subversive sense of humor. His subjects are often impaled, in uncomfortable positions, or missing entirely.
