Austrian Artist Channels the 1980s With Her Indulgent Food Posters

Liz Studentschnig is an Austrian artist with a taste for 1980’s nostalgia that she transfers to her vintage fast food posters. Her latest series titled Indulgence features four brightly colored illustrations that show typical ‘80s fast foods like glazed donuts and McDonald’s Happy Meals.

The Leeds-based Studentschnig couldn’t help but include storytelling in her art. “I love telling stories,” she writes on her website. “Which is exactly what my work is all about: mixing hand-drawn illustrations with bold typography and sleek layouts to create eye-catching design solutions brimming with character. And if I can put a smile on people’s faces in the process, even better!”

She finished her MA in Advertising & Design in 2014 and immediately started working on her freelance career. Over the past five years, she’s worked with numerous clients from the UK and beyond. She describes her style as “Toulouse-Lautrec meets bright and colourful comics realm, sprinkle with a touch of Pop Art,” and we couldn’t have put it any better.
