illustrations: Daniel Ramirez Perez
Berlin’s cityscape isn’t as flashy as some other metropoles boasting a single iconic landmark like Lady Liberty for New York City, the Eiffel Tower for Paris or the Twin Tower for Kuala Lumpur. Instead, Berlin rather gets you with its edgy, yet historic, character that is present and clearly visible everywhere in the city. From the graffitied streets of Kreuzberg to the tall Fernsehturm that you can see from pretty much wherever you are – I’m sure you will agree that this indeed is a very diverse city. It’s difficult to sum up Berlin in words, that’s why we’re glad to have illustrator Daniel Ramirez Perez capture our charming and wonderfully weird Berlin in his colorful architectural illustrations. Have a look for yourself after the jump.
Part artist, part art director, part designer, Daniel Ramirez Perez calls Berlin home and graphics and illustrations is where he can express most of his artistic freedom. Most of his sketches are done by hand which gives them the extra touch as you can see in his work. Previously working with renown names such as Vivienne Westwood and M&C Saatchi Daniel Ramirez Perez started working for himself last year freelancing with clients and also working on personal projects including a beautifully illustrated calendar as well as a picture book that’s still in the works.
If you can’t get enough you can see more of his work on his website including magazine illustration, fashion work and even a truck. You can also click here to view more of the best illustrations of Berlin.
