Scrolling through Nolan Pelletier’s Instagram page, you can’t help but feel nostalgic. Based in Toronto, Canada, he draws inspiration from ancient and modern history, lost civilizations, and cats.
“Since I was young I’ve loved collecting antiques at sales and flea markets,” he shared with Polpettas. “I’m particularly drawn to both mid-century art, and Victorian packaging and antiques.”
His art is full of geometric patterns and odd creatures. “I find it very fun and stimulating to look at art that is full of pattern and detail, and there’s something hypnotic about the act of creating it,” he admitted.
“I read a good passage in a Victorian decorating book that said that good design should replicate the complexity of nature. The outside world is full of detail and pattern and movement, so why shouldn’t design be as well?”
