Van Orton Design is the cover name of two talented twin brothers out of Italy. The pair have been slowly gaining recognition in the last few years with their digital stained glass recreation of pop culture stills. Amongst recent commissions are Rolling Stone Italia who asked for a portrait of former Guns & Roses guitarist Slash that would mimic his colourful personality.
Every piece produced by the team commonly transposes a bright hyperbole of colour and a fun and interesting geometry that will keep you amused indefinitely.
Despite their relatively underground persona with little communicated about the true identity of the artists, you soon develop an understanding of their personality through their broad yet defined subject matter. The diversity would appeal to a wide audience, from classic retro themes in gaming and movie posters through to sneakers and sports illustrations.
A selection of their 80s movie posters can be seen on this video:
