5+ Interesting Airplane Livery Painting Designs by Master Aviation Painter André Eisele


The Air Navigation Pro team loves hearing about stories from pilots and people in the aviation industry in general; we are always on the search for new and relevant narratives from the aeronautics community. Today, we shine a light on one of the unsung heroes of plane aesthetics and design, a livery airbrush painter named André Eisele.

André, 60 years of age, has been a freelance artist for 40 years, with mediums from motorcycles, cars, walls to airplane surfaces. The Eisele family has had generations of artists. Aircraftstyle Ltd. is a family-owned business with Max Eisele as Director, André Eisele as the creative head and Charles Eisele as the support for the company.


André shared that art is in their blood, and if he wasn't an aviation painter he would probably have been sculptor. He was 18 when he discovered that airbrush was his favorite art tool. He shared that he first got the idea to paint planes when he tried applying for a pilot license to fly an ultralight. 6 years ago he thought about why the planes were so boring and white, about 2 weeks later, he started engaging in aircraft livery with his website showcasing his impressive portfolio. A shift from attempting to fly planes to actually painting them.

Here are some of the most interesting designs from his portfolio:

FC Barcelona for Qatar Airways (Boeing 777)


FC Barcelona jersey was imprinted at the tail area of one of Qatar Airways' planes, commemorating their long partnership.

André Eisele truly has an interesting profession that not only helps planes look better, but also add a bit of culture and history in its surface. He is surely one of the most interesting freelance artists today.
