A current day Italian artist who recentaly grabbed my attention in an online art blog happened upon a month or two ago. While Ceccoli is gaining recognition as a painter, she is already well known as an award winning children’s book illustrator. She has published many books in Italy, the US, and the UK.
I think the main reason I like her work is how she combines reality with thought. The mind is a curious thing and it often mistakes the impossible for the usual. Her work takes things 'figurative' to literal. And I absolutely love the way she paints in such pale, macabre colors.
