Bloodline / Sientelo

Bloodline and Sientelo make up the second EP from Manchester-based artist Florentino. In 2015 I designed the promotional artwork to accompany his debut release, reflecting his trademark romantic character through a composition of roses and marble. The second EP shows off Florentino’s darker, more mysterious and alluring side, so I changed up the colour scheme, introducing rich smoke and wine tones to the marble backdrop. I simplified the composition by eliminating two of the roses, leaving one single flower with refined and heightened levels of detail and texture. The lighting is subtle yet dramatic, and gives the impression that the rose could be floating just above the marble, hovering in suspense.
