Visual artisan, gardener of the imagination, irrealistic illustrator, graphic designer & affichiste.

I’m an Italian illustrator with a strong background in graphic design: I think of me as a Graphic Artist more than merely an Illustrator. I’ve been working in communication for over 15 years, during which I’ve been involved in editorial, publisher and corporate assignments, mainly at national level, also as an Art Director and Graphic Designer for great companies (Renault Italy, Materis Paints, Max Meyer Coatings).

I love conceptual illustration, hand-lettering and colorful oddities.
I don’t like realism.
