What’s On Your Wall?: Leandro Castelao, Designer & Illustrator

Welcome to What’s On Your Wall?, an ongoing series exploring the creative domestic spaces of the artists that inspire us. (But mostly, it’s our excuse to sneak a peek into the homes and studios of artists from all over the world.)

Inspired by the great Futurists of the early 1900s, Leandro Castelao’s simple, geometric illustrations have been featured everywhere from Google to The New York Times. Take a peek at the Argentinian illustrator’s studio setup in Brooklyn, NY:
