Giulia Landonio is an illustrator currently based in Napoli, Italy. Before landing in the south, she lived in Estonia for many years where she complited her studies in international relations at the University of Tartu and in print making at the Estonian Art Academy. Giulia started her carrier as an illustrator during a field trip in siberia with a group of sociologists. Her approach to illustration consists in a double movement – getting closer to the text, making the author's words become her own, and distancing herself from the text in order to leaving space for personal images to arise. This process brings out the visual metaphor of what she perceives as being the main message of the text. Giulia mainly works with acrylic, pencil and various pritining techniques.
