About me
Graphic Communication student at Chelsea UAL. Coming from Milan. Currently based in London. Just finished a six-month student exchange program at FIT in New York. Specialising in the development of creative strategies and visual concepts for the cultural and commercial fields, with a focus on branding, visual design, art direction and editorial design and moving image. Highly interested in social, ethical and cultural matters. My projects convey my personal point of view on issues I am intellectually involved with. My ethical curiosity often makes me a keen observer of specific details that stand out within a context.

    Graphic designerELI KLEIN GALLERY
    New York, United StatesFreelance
    I discovered the Eli Klein Gallery, world renowned for Chinese art. I am passionate for Chinese contemporary art, and have a long-standing connection with a gallery in Milan. Discussing with Eli Klein I learned about different Chinese art movements and about their impact as political and social drivers of contemporary art. I've been designing a catalogue, leaflet and poster for the ZHENG GUOGU exhibition. I also helped to set up the ‘Shen Fan: Works in abstraction, 1992 - 2017’ exhibition.
