Personal Website:

My name is Fabio Buonocore and I am a Milan-based illustrator. Ever since I was young I have loved the art of the Costiera Amalfitana fabrics used for silk scarves, trousers and the Mediterranean style in its style and forms. Also japanese art and graphic design have had a strong influence on my art and way of thinking. In my personal practice I explore themes of humanism, identity, love, and genetic transformations.
