Welcome to the world of Cyril Vouilloz aka Rylsee, a universe made of drawings, letters and words. In a new editorial adventure, Moleskine Publishing brings to life the surprising, exciting and playful world of contemporary letter art. How to Play with Letters is a journey into the discovery of drawings and sketches whose raw simplicity provide an accurate and perceptive filter through which to reflect on today’s world .
Rylsee is known for his witty, provocative slogan designs that appear to play on as well as subtly critique the short, superficial communications encouraged by smart-phone culture. He is an artist who expresses himself through the powerful medium of lettering and one of the integral members of the legendary Berlin art & music venue, Urban Spree.
Never far from his sketchbook, Rylsee uses it as a tool for his creativity and work as much as an escape from boredom and restlessness. Like so much of what he does, his sketchbooks are hard to classify as they are the process as much as they are the finished work. In his own words, “We should embrace the fact that people do something, rather than judge the final product. Well done doesn’t mean interesting”.
How to Play with Letters is published by Moleskine Books and is an ideal guide for anyone with an interest in cutting edge art and design.
