Stunning Art Nouveau Fan Art Is Fitting Tribute The Work of Miyazaki and Mucha [Art]


There’s probably more than enough Alphonse Mucha-inspired, art nouveau fan-art to go around on the Internet, but rarely have we seen any that’s so well done or so thematically appropriate. The Pixiv artist calling themselves Marlboro took their cue from the original artist himself when creating these art nouveau tributes to Hayao Miyazaki, the legendary Studio Ghibili animator of such classics as Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Castle in the Sky and Ponyo, among others.

Mucha’s work reflected the values of art noveau not just in its ornate designs but also its inspiration from the natural world, something Miyazaki took to gorgeous extremes in Nausicaä and Castle in the Sky in particular, where we see entire civilizations designed and constructed to function in concert with (super)natural environments. The “compartmentalized” look of Mucha’s designs also map very well over Miyazaki’s films, which always feature a number of distinct characters, landmarks, vehicles, decorative styles and other elements that Marlboro organized and rendered into some truly sophisticated images that pay homage to both great artists.
