Kalle Wolters


Kalle works with a variety of materials, from coloured pencil drawings to vector illustrations, combining analogue and digital techniques to make a stylised but organic whole. His work is characterised by an emphasis on composition in which abstract and figurative elements come together to create a vibrant mosaic. He often hints at the abstract shapes of constructivism mixed with poetic, playful elements. Kalle's commissions include, among other things, editorial illustrations, posters, beer labels and book illustrations.
