Profile

He graduated from the School of Applied Arts in Lugano, worked for many years in graphic studies and agencies between Milan and Ticino and then settled in Zurich, where since 2008 he works as a graphic designer and art director. The illustration for Mirko is a parallel but not a secondary career, given the numerous collaborations and international awards that have punctuated his professional career. He has found over time his style that has been enriched with realistic details and vibrant colors without renouncing cleanliness and compositional synthesis. Irony allows him to deal with sensitive, social, political and topical issues, avoiding being didactic or too empathetic.
