Silence Television is the nom de plume of Peruvian illustrator and designer Gianmarco Magnani. His wonderfully crisp illustrations feature clean figurative work that contrasts nicely with highly-detailed renderings of guitars and motorcycles.

You can see more over at his site, where you can also order some mighty fine giclée prints to adorn your walls.
