Azzurra Galatolo

Orbetello/ Italy

WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?

My name is Azzurra Galatolo, I am 33 years old and I am from Tuscany. I live in Orbetello/Monte Argentario and I love my region especially in winter. I graduated in art and specialized in illustration for publishing at the International School of Comics in Florence and Rome. I work independently but I also collaborate with different brands. I have always been drawing, my head is often in the clouds and this is a way to make my visions more real and helps me to reflect and unravel the knots. With time I’ve realized that I prefer raw shapes over refined ones, that I prefer the strong trait to the shy one, that a mistake can be the added value, a bit like the background rustling when listening to music on vinyl.

WHAT DO YOU GET INSPIRED TO CREATE YOUR ILLUSTRATIONS?

I am mainly inspired by my personal growth.

From the simple life, from people or things that enrich me on a human level. Everything can be a source of inspiration if you want to search and understand.

WHAT ARE YOUR LUCIDITY PILLS?

I am lucky enough to be a mother so most of my shine pills go through my daughter by necessity. However, I believe a lot in personal experience, that of real life. And I think that we cannot successfully process (through an artistic work) something that we have not experienced on our own skin.
