About Ilaria’s illustrations & art
The aim of Ilaria’s work is to challenge and amuse people, stimulating their eyes and mind. In the creation of her artworks, Ilaria applies a natural and instinctive approach combining visually evocative elements to create engaging and thought-provoking images. With her unique way of creating collages, layering cut-outs from magazines and textiles, she is able to capture the body, its movements, and a brand aesthetic in a very unique way. During the collage-making process, a little cut-out combines perfectly with another cut-out that combines magically with another one leading to a surprising final result. Her innovative compositions and elegant and chic colour palette and texture allow the artist to express her emotions and feelings and capture other people’s ones. Ilaria’s work has been defined as extraordinary and sophisticated, able to express strong concepts.
Working in and collaborating with the fashion industry, Ilaria has created a wide range of editorial illustrations, she has been shortlisted for the FIDA Awards 2020. She has worked for fashion companies like Beulah London and Lunar James and recently I brought her expertise as a guest lecturer in ‘Illustrating Fashion’ a course led by Joanna Layla at the prestigious House of Illustration.
