With her mixed media collages and fashion illustration work, Ilaria aims to challenge and amuse people, stimulating their minds. Behind every artwork, there is more than just a beautiful figure. It’s not only about capturing an external likeness, a gorgeous piece of clothing or a brand aesthetic, but rather creating a portal to the inner journey of self-exploration. Every piece is meant to leave a message to the audience, it’s meant to stimulate the viewer to open a dialogue and create a connection.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Ilaria is a London-based multidisciplinary artist. Her practice combines working on commercial briefs with brands, art directors and designers with artistic briefs for magazines and galleries.

Her love for art and drawing started at a very young age, and it resulted in her BA in Interior Design at the Polytechnic of Milan (2015) and her Master in Communication Design: Illustration at Kingston University (2017). After her studies, Ilaria has been working and collaborating with the fashion, art and event industries. Since her proper debut as an artist and illustrator in 2017 she has worked for fashion companies like Beulah London, she has been shortlisted for the FIDA Awards in 2020, she brought her expertise as a lecturer in ‘Illustrating Fashion’, a course at the prestigious House of Illustration. In 2021 Ilaria collaborated as an art director with the theatre company ‘El Gavetin’ and she launched her jewellery collection in collaboration with the sustainable brand Lunar James. On top of this, Ilaria worked as the lead designer of the Racing League, a modern horseracing competition and event broadcasted on Sky Sports and she has recently started a new role at Unit London and their NFT platform Institut.

Ilaria’s work has been seen in galleries and exhibitions around the world including the Antonia Jannone’s Gallery (Milan, 2013), Milan Design Week (2014), Gallery Different (London, 2017), Wilton’s Music Hall (London, 2017), London Design Week(2019), Cluster Illustration Editions V & VI (London, 2019-2020), The William Morris Society (London, 2021) and most recently at ‘Decay’ exhibition with the Rise Collective at Arch (Vietnam) and more.

“I really enjoy dialogue and exchanging ideas with industry leaders and creative teams, as this gives me so much inspiration. I strongly believe in creative collaboration and art collectives as for me being part of a community is key to developing my practice.”

When Ilaria creates her collages she starts with an image, a photograph that intrigues her, from there she proceeds with a natural and instinctive approach combining visually evocative elements to create engaging and thought-provoking images. Layering small cut-outs from magazines and textiles, inks and acrylics is not only a beautiful and liberating technique but also a way to combine and merge the history, the feelings and emotions that come with the material Ilaria puts together. Her collage-making process doesn’t follow a precise structure, the artist lets the flow of her creativity run free and the images and brush strokes merge spontaneously. In fact, a little cut-out combines perfectly with another cut-out that combines impeccably with a brushstroke leading to a surprising final result.
