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 and shapes in which it might be easy finding fragments of ourselves. 


This emotional approach has given Fernando the opportunity to work on a wide variety of  projects, including editorial, advertising, books, storyboarding and murals. In the educational field, Fernando has taught in some high quality Italian institutes and has held different didactic activities in some other international universities in Mexico, India, Russia, China, Venezuela, Bulgaria and Turkey.
