Biography

Anna Paladini was born in 1989, in a little village deep in the countryside of Marche (Italy). Due to her true passion about any form of visual art, she starts experimenting with drawing techniques at a very young age and never stopped ever since.
She graduated at the School of Arts of Urbino and specialized in illustration and animated-film making. In order to continue her path through experimentation, she moved to Milan and attended the IED Fashion conveying her passion for comics and cinema through dressmaking.
She now is a freelance and works mostly as illustrator and textile designer for important companies such as Moschino and Bulgari and every now and then she takes part in indie projects as consultant and art director.
She recently started an Instagram page named @rawfragments where she posts personal illustrations that would like to explore (and hopefully unfold) contemporary social issues.
