Antoni Tudisco (born November 28, 1991) is a graphic designer/digital artist based in Hamburg, Germany. His surreal and colorful style has been featured in Vogue, Highsnobiety, and Hypebeast. He has collaborated with major artists like Will Smith, Pop Smoke, Swae Lee, and Steve Aoki.
He has worked for numerous clients, such as Coca-Cola, Reebok Woman, Vans Indonesia, and MTV Philippines among many others and his works and clients may be more than those who are much older than him.
He was born on November 28, 1991, in Hamburg, Germany to a multicultural family and this contributed to his amazing talent.
His mother is a Filipina fashion enthusiast while his father is an Italian chef and he was exposed to the cultures of two sides of the world.
As a child, he always doodled, sketched pictures, and created his own characters. According to him he barely listened to my teachers at school and was too busy to finish his Son Goku masterpiece. He always had his own world ever since he was a little kid.
At the age of 17, he enrolled at the SAE Institute and took up a Web design and Development program. While doing this course, he realized it wasn't for him as he didn’t want to learn the language of computers.
Despite this, he still pulled through and got his diploma a year after. The things he designs presently he didn't learn from the course since it wasn't taught, so he just researched and practiced everything on his own till he mastered his own style.
Since the day he developed his personal website and uploaded his works on the Internet, he got a lot of attention and huge feedback from different agencies as well as ADs/CDs who gave him his first projects.
Initially, it wasn’t a big deal, just small projects here and there but as years went on, he became better in his field and got more and bigger agreements.
His biggest breakthrough started when he uploaded his project KILL ART//TRUST DESIGN. Bigger companies and bigger names contacted him and wanted a piece of it.
He launched his own brand TUDISCO STUDIO as well. Having been featured in Vogue, Highsnobiety & Hypebeast and winning several notable design awards.
He works alongside his brother Marc Tudisco on animating his pieces.
He has been designing some pretty amazing 3D sneakers. Working with Nike, Inc. or Adidas, his sneakers are more like a digital piece of art rather than potential prototypes.
His combination of contrasting colors, textures and unusual elements like concrete blocks, bubbles, furs, or hamburgers give his final compositions a very distinct and trendy style.
In an interview with Digital Arts, he said:
"I'm a big Nike fan; even though I do gigs for them I still love to do personal works based around their sneakers. I'm a big sneakerhead, to be honest".
