City landscapes, nature landscapes and everyday situations are part of the work of Italian illustrator Matteo Berton. His are landscapes with character, detail and personality to get lost in just by looking at them.
With a palette of solid and striking colors, Matteo Berton tells a story with simple forms
With a palette of solid and striking colors, Matteo Berton tells a story with simple forms. When looking closely at them, one gets the feeling you’re walking on them, as if you were a character in a comic or a story, a part of what you are seeing. In some of its landscapes, the colorful shadows make you feel the suffocating heat of the sun or the peace of nature under the moonlight.
 
His technique and style have caught the attention of several magazines and newspapers including The New York TimesThe New Yorker or Le Monde and brands such as Moleskin, Liberty London and Timberland. Berton has also created illustrations Anna Foa’s childrens book Portico d’Ottavia, about a 500-year-old Jewish ghetto in Rome.
