The first time I got in touch with Daniele Serra it was because we both are musicians and our respective bands were signed to the same Swedish label, Cold Meat Industry.
At that time (it was almost 10 years ago, I guess ..) we discussed about a possible split release but because of our label closing doors and other occurrences in our lives we eventually did not realize the project. Back then, I was not aware that Daneiele, aside being a great musician is also a stunning illustrator.
Since his art related posts on various social networks, I started following his journey in the art field and I must admit I am really impressed how fast he did grow. He developed a personal and very peculiar style lying between painting and illustration and using more and more traditional mediums as oils and watercolors he cranks out lots of stunning pieces.
The talent of Daniele, has been celebrated and recognized abroad before than on our country (as unfortunately often happens), with prizes (2012 British Fantasy Awards as Best Artist) and illustrious publications such as the graphic novel “I tell you it’s love” in collaboration with Joe Landsdale.
