Melanie Gandyra c/o WILDFOX RUNNING is a freelance illustrator and artist from Hamburg and Innsbruck. The main focus of her work is on editorial, infographic and informative illustration. Her drawings usually start on paper. The colored pencil forms the basis of colors, shapes and structures. These analog fragments are digitized, composed and finally find their ultimate fusion. Expressive color worlds whisk the viewer into symmetrical, often surreal superstructures that metaphorically communicate and inform.
From time to time, she replaces paper with walls and has already had the pleasure of realizing murals for Viva con Agua, interactive city maps for the Hamburg Schauspielhaus, or the window display of the Patagonia Store in Innsbruck.
In 2021, she won Gold in the category 'Scientific Illustration' at the Global Illustration Awards with the series 'Be Aware and Care'. She illustrated just recently for vegan yoghurt brand HARVEST MOON, for WIRTSCHAFTSWOCHE and Schauspielhaus Hamburg. More can be seen via WILDFOX RUNNING.
