WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?

My name is Silvia, although everyone calls me Sil. I am 26 years old and I live in a creamy white house on the edge of the woods in Trentino Alto Adige. I graduated in Set Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Verona, and then deepened my education in Spain, where I had the opportunity to approach the world of illustration for the first time. I then obtained a master’s degree in Illustration for Publishing at the ISIA of Urbino. Today I work as Visual and Graphic Designer for a fashion company and I collaborate as Freelance Illustrator with publishing houses and public institutions. I am a simple girl, I love being with people but I think it is necessary to carve out some moments to be alone, I read books on philosophy, I cook (and obviously eat) with my boyfriend dishes that are not too light and dietary and, finally, I love plants, nature and breathing the mountain air.

WHAT DO YOU GET INSPIRED TO CREATE YOUR ILLUSTRATIONS?

Before drawing I reflect and think a lot. I like to give shape to a drawing if it is clear in my head what I want to communicate with it, where I want to go with it.

My main references are in the art world, I love the shapes and colours of Matisse, the metaphysical realism of De Chirico and the geometry of Kandinsky. Photography also fascinates and inspires me a lot, I recently discovered Carlo Benvenuto, and from that moment on his shots have never wanted to leave my imagination.
