Fernando Cobelo

Fernando Cobelo (1988) is a Venezuelan illustrator based in Turin (Italy), known for his clean, defined, essential and sometimes even childish illustrations. Fernando depicts universes full of surreal dreams and vivid nightmares that trigger our thoughts and move our feelings, with naive lines in which it might be easy finding fragments of ourselves. 


This emotional approach has given Fernando the opportunity to work with clients such as Disney, Lavazza, Moleskine, Lonely Planet, Ryot Studio, Swatch, TIAA, Skillshare, Doctors Without Borders (among others), and publish books with Penguin Random House and Ediciones Hidroavión.


In the educational field, Fernando has taught in some Italian institutes like IED, LUISS  and Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo and has held different didactic activities in some other international universities in Mexico, India, Russia, China, Venezuela, Bulgaria and Turkey.
