Meet the Tutor

Cesare, is an Italian designer who has spent the last 14 years working as a professional designer and lettering artist, first entering the world of visual arts during the late 1990’s as a graffiti artist.
After graduating in Design and Communication at IED in 2003 in Rome he began his career as a designer working in the industry, later went on and developed a passion for calligraphy and lettering.
Throughout his artistic career as a graffiti and lettering artist and designer he lived and worked in many cities including: Rome, Bologna, Milan followed by a year in South America – precisely in Santiago de Chile- , where he became influenced by ‘muralism’ and South American culture, which has had an deep impact on his artistic production ever since.
He later moved to London where he worked for various communication agencies, carried out projects with luxury brands while continuing his artistic research.
Influenced by a visit to TATE he became fascinated by the great works of contemporary artists such as Gerard Richter, Franz Kline, Rochko and various informal Italian painters of the 50s and 60s like Emilio Vedova.
Cesare, finds great fascination and creative inspiration through the parallels and similarities in the attitude of informal painters with graffiti where the speed of execution and creative instinct are at base.
He has been creating various works in London commissioned by globalstreetart.com and sets for the large-scale Teatro di Calabria.
