Nicoletta Ceccoli

Surrealism, fantasy, magic, strange creatures and a beautiful doll-like character among all these with very distinct innocent facial features. There’s definitely much more in Nicoletta Ceccoli’s work to make you feel absorbed in a timeless and spaceless world she paints. I came across this brilliant Italian artist’s work through Bak Magazine and enthralled since.

Nicoletta Ceccoli, an award winning children’s book illustrator, has illustrated over 30 books since 1995 mainly with USA, UK , and Italian publishers. Her clients included among the others Random House, Simon and Shuster, Houghton Mifflin, Mondadori, and Grimm Press.

In 2001 she was awarded the Andersen prize ‘Baia Delle Favole’ as the best illustrator of the year in Italy. In 2006 she was awarded with a silver medal from the Society of Illustrators of New York. Nicoletta Ceccoli has exhibited her work in group and solos shows across Europe and North America.

    I love Nicoletta Ceccoli’s art/illustrations. I was first introduced to her work in a children’s book. I immediately fell in love with the surrealism, the air of whimsy combined with melancholy and the innocent, fairy-tale-like settings and characters. I have written 2 or 3 posts about her work on my blog, http://lespetitsmorceaux.blogspot.com/.

    It is charming, wonderful!
    I bought all the books with her illustrations available on a market! I am planning a tattoo as well, she is addictive and calming, inspiring and perfectly beautiful!!
