when we started RES / REI we had one concept in mind: Handmade in Italy with love.
It's where it all started four years ago; it's our DNA.
Handmade in Italy with love, of course, refers to the "Italianness" of the supply chain; but it also means an attitude, a way of life: we try to put a little bit of love on all things we do.
Facing the question "how do we communicate our brand?", we realised that illustration is the perfect means to convey the idea of such Handmade in Italy with love.
We are pleased to introduce Karin Kellner!
Karin, a Milan based illustrator, has a distinctive aptitude for representing human figures by means of different painting techniques that span both traditional and digital media. Wisely mixing abstraction and figuration, Karin’s style is devoid of extraneous details, which gives to her subjects a personal interpretation through the use of light colours and strong marks, straddling a magical line between rigorous and wistful.
