2023 Winner

Jury Statement

The drawings of Andrea are very compelling. We could easily relate to the funny characters with their strong personalities and sense of humor. It all looks so light and depurated but we recognize a great mastery. The limited palette of shapes, colours and a few lines create a vibrating graphical expression, reminding of electric city lights.
The set-up is not accidental, each element has its own, well-defined weight and a clear intention. Each one of his illustrations express a clear intention for all kinds of audience.
The decision was unanimous and the Jury is sure that Andrea will continue his career following his own voice even more radically.
