The pictorial research of Giulio Noccesi (born in 1996 in Florence, lives and works in Turin) starts from the contrast between the serious legacy of pre-Renaissance Italian painting and the playfulness of illustration for children.

The need to combine play and solemnity leads to the distortion of the depicted forms and the insertion of surreal elements. Representations linked to everyday life blend with colors and visions belonging to play and fantasy, all with a pictorial language that seeks agreement between contrasting elements.
