About the Artist
I was born in Brescia, Italy, in 1978, but now I live in the center of Italy. I started drawing when I was a child, continually looking for ideas that would increase my imagination. After graduating at the Art School, I started working as Graphic Designer in several fields, such as Toys, Apparel, Communication… Nevertheless the illustration has always been my dream in a drawer, that’s why one day, in 2013, I decided to apply completely myself to this art as a freelance. I create covers for Italian and foreign publishers, e.g. Pan Mcmillan, Suhrkamp, Gestalten, Einaudi, Feltrinelli, Mondadori. I also work for important communication agencies and magazines about Science, Psychology and Wellnes, such as WWD, Oprah magazine, New Scientist, The Observer/The Guardian, John Hopkins e Variety. My illustrations belong to conceptual or surrealist art and my style is mainly minimal and narrative. I use chromatic contrasts and rarefied atmospheres to compose onirical scenes. I always try to give a positive, playful vision. I prefer working with companies that pay attention to social, environmental themes. For example I wouldn’t work for brands that make experimentation on animals. Indeed, I’m an animal rights activist and vegetarian, and consider my four cats as my family. In my spare time I love reading books, travelling, riding my old motorcycle and go swimming – themes that often inspire me for my illustrations.
