Simone Rotella was born and grew up in Italy where he graduated in Graphic and Virtual Design from the Polytechnic University of Turin. He recently moved from the UK, where he worked for three years, to France. He has just completed an illustration project for an archaeological book: “For the Gods of Girsu” for the British Museum.
His eclectic inspiration and approach enables him to create a varied and wide range of illustrative work: from historical illustrations to illustrations for novels books and children’s tales. He also worked for a year creating textile designs.
Some of his artwork is inspired by street art (his first love) and artists such as: Blue, Alessandro Gottardo “Shout”, Dran Niels Shoe, Sergio Toppi and Hugo Pratt.
