"Everyone is allowed to dream, but rather only at night"
Giulia Palombino is originally from the south of Italy, and holds an Illustration MA from Central Saint Martins, London, and a BA in Visual Arts from IUAV, Venice. She now works as an illustrator and animator in Berlin. Her practice is centered on small-scale drawing and animation. She creates dreamlike and somewhat humorous images characterized by delicate lines, empty spaces, and unusual compositions. She is inspired by the desire to create mysteries rather than solve them. Using a typically associative method — that of combining different moments of her ever-evolving sketch collections — she tries to capture the fleeting visions that come to her mind, before being reabsorbed by the void. Female characters, shown as fragmented but not necessarily sexualized, and mundane objects are a recurring theme in her work.
