Riccardo Fabiani
Motta di Livenza, Italy – 1979

At primary school I found out that drawing was the best way to communicate with the world, since then, I have never stopped.

I play unhindered between contemporary art and writing. Frontman of a rockband, poet and book lover, I have a natural tendency to explore and connect. After some workshops in Europe, I am now working as an illustrator in Italy and abroad.
