Inspired by Icarus, who attempted to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. If he was in love with the sun, then this might as well be a story of forbidden love.” This is how Gabriel Picolo interprets the illustrated story of Icarus and the Sun.
Gabriel Picolo, the Brazilian artist, is behind this gorgeous yet tragic story of love, fire, forbidden fruits, and loss.
Picolo is a classical and digital artist who began obtaining traction in 2014 when his 365 days scheme of drawing every day obtained some loyal followers. According to Picolo`s Patreon, his inspiration comes from Studio Ghibli, Disney, and video games.
“I love to draw something that is relatable to other people and me as well.”
The illustrated love story of Icarus and the Sun is motivated by a well-known tale called Daedalus and Icarus about a man who died by flying too near to the blazing sun with his wings, made from feathers and wax. Gabriel’s greatest love tale is wonderful, unique and tragic all at the same time.
