Fernando Cobelo (1988) is a Venezuelan illustrator based in Turin (Italy), known for his clean, defined, essential and sometimes even childish illustrations. Fernando depicts universes full of surreal dreams and vivid nightmares that trigger our thoughts and move our feelings, with naive lines in which it might be easy finding fragments of ourselves.
This emotional approach has given Fernando the opportunity to work with clients such as The New York Times, The United Nations, Google, Penguin / Random House, TED, Walt Disney Studios, Corriere della Sera, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, UNICEF, The Washington Post, Vanity Fair, Lavazza, Montblanc, Lonely Planet, Zanichelli, Swatch, Barilla, National Chamber of Italian Fashion, and WeTransfer. Moreover, his work has been awarded and recognized by The Society of Illustrators of New York, Autori di Immagini, The Association of Illustrators of UK, American Illustration, among other important illustration bodies.
In the educational field, Fernando has taught in some Italian institutes like IED, LUISS and Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo and has held different didactic activities in some other international universities in Mexico, India, Russia, China, Venezuela, Bulgaria and Turkey.
