“Life is too short to get a real job,” says Elia Colombo, also known as Gebe, and we are nothing but grateful for his unusual motto, as it got this Italian artist to where he is now. Gebe combines his passion for graphic design and philosophy to create thought-provoking, cool drawings.

The freelance designer, illustrator, and self-named ‘free spirit’ turns his views and observations into colorful conceptual deep drawings that hold a mirror to social problems, pointing out its flaws with a fair share of humor and irony. Gebe seeks perfection in simplicity, which results in a minimalistic and provocative satire in an image.

In his polished illustrations, Gebe reflects on controversial topics, such as social habits, media, religion, and self-love making us face the harsh reality of today’s world.

These clever illustrations provide quality food for deep thoughts, so we hope you are hungry!

as a person with many suicidal and/or depressed friends, this hurt. even though I myself haven't even thought seriously about taking my own life, i know they have. please remember that suicide doesn't stop the pain... it just passes it along.

Like the faded hues. It's important to teach self awareness and self appreciation. It's also important to teach common scene and humility.
