Pol Cosmo

Pol Cosmo is a street artist from Ghent, Belgium. There is not that much known about his identity. He draws insects that pop up everywhere in the city. “In school we had to draw these boring objects like apples, a glass, grapes, … and I wasn’t any good at it.

So I came to the conclusion I could better quit drawing, even though I liked it. It took me more than 15 years to realize there is more to illustrating than being able to make an image that resembles the reality as closely as possible.” Pol Cosmo’s style is easy to recognize: black and white drawing, bold lines, patterns, … “Afterwards I copy them and I add some color. When they are ready, I cut them out and then they find their way to the streets.”
