WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?

My name is Giulia Sollai, zodiac sign scales, ascending twins. I was born in Cagliari but I live in Bologna since 2006 where I studied visual arts – painting and I specialized in illustration for publishing at the Academy of Fine Arts. I deal with painting, illustration and design for different sectors: from publishing to fashion, furniture and so on… also collaborating with important companies.

The fact that I move in different sectors makes me feel stimulated and enriched because everything I learn becomes part of my cultural background and serves to grow artistically. In 2014 I realized an art project in the heart of the center of Bologna; it is called “La Casetta dell’artista”. From here I took the name of my instagram profile. This project includes many things: it’s my home-studio of painting; it’s an art gallery exhibiting works by different artists that change every time; it’s a blog; it’s a bed and breakfast; it’s my home; it’s a place where cultural events are held also in collaboration with the most important artistic-cultural festivals in the city of Bologna. At the moment I’m in “work in progress” mode because I’m working behind the scenes to create something bigger, but for now I won’t reveal more!

WHAT DO YOU GET INSPIRED TO CREATE YOUR ILLUSTRATIONS?

My ideas are born from the enrichment of my experiences, whether they are work, visual, sensory, etc… and above all from constant exercise. What has a great influence on my art is certainly related to my origins and my childhood.
