My name is Barbara Simone, I’m an italian freelance illustrator and graphic designer. I like: pick up objects, modify them, cut, paste, draw … So were born “the collage”, using screws, bolts, buttons, hooks, combining them with the graphics and a touch of madness on wooden boards.

In a collage, a rusty nail can become the bent stem of a rose; a button turns into the moon, and the stars are a handful of small bolts, and there is no difference between matter and narrative.

I love Dada and Surrealist art from the 900, I love all that is vintage: pictures and objects retro, ’50s advertising. Italian neorealist cinema, one of the ’70s and of early French cinema. Music, theater, graphic novels, literature and everything that stimulates my imagination.
