Namen Basil

Namen Basil is an illustrator and animator from Colombia, currently based in Mexico City.

Basil’s work is comprised of surreal shapes and characters influenced by 1930s cartoons, which evolve and regress through the animations. Basil’s work touches upon the contradictions found in social behaviour, raising questions on concepts of identity, and considers our inability to properly connect with others. Basil approaches these topics with humour, in a playful and colourful way.
