Raphaël Vicenzi, also known as Mydeadpony, is a Belgian illustrator. He creates layered mix media artwork that combine influences from art, fashion, graffiti and graphic design.
Born in the small industrial town of Charleroi in 1972, he moved to Brussels when he was in my twenties. Entirely self taught, his style is derived from an amalgamation of interest. Becoming more refined over time, his newer work is more thought out, and far more unique.
Over the course of his freelance career, Vicenzi has worked with big clients including Universal, Votre Beauté, Washington Post, Hemisphere, Virgin, and Madame Figaro. His work has been published in Taschen 100 Illustrators and Illustration Now – Portraits. He has also built up a large evergrowing fan base with 12,000 Facebook likes and 64,000 Behance followers.
Last year he published a book of his work called LIVING WITH: My Dead Pony . The book features 32 of his most stunning artworks and has perforation along the spine, making each one removable for framing.
