Please give a warm welcome to our new visualising artist, Dominique Gelli.
Here’s his story so far…
Dominique studied to be an artist, and spent six years at the National Superior Art School of Amiens, Reims and Lille (France) before starting his professional career as a art director at a French advertising agency. But it was clear that his heart was in drawing, so he eventually settled in Paris as an illustrator, creating storyboards, key visuals, and animatics for advertising communication. He’s worked with a number of world-renown agencies, including Publicis, JWT, Leo Burnett, Ogilvy, Saatchi… to name just a few!
Dominquie has applied his illustrative skills to a wide range of luxury, fashion, auto and food brands - everything from Cartier to American Express, Levis, BMW and Nestle. His versatility has made him a go-to illustrator not only for advertising; he has provided art direction for film posters (for Peter Jackson and Luc Besson, no less) and comic books.
In his spare time, Dominique moves from pen (and computer) to canvas and applies his skills to fine art. Is there no end to his creativity? Otherwise, you will find him engrossed in music with his son, Tino.
