Beatrice Cerocchi Architect – Artist
Beatrice Cerocchi isn’t just content with one career as a qualified Architect, she’s also a pretty fine Illustrator too. I came across her Tumblr page and thought I’d share her work with you. Somehow it’s not surprising that buildings often feature in her paintings !
From a brief resume on her agent’s site over at Plum Pudding Illustration, Beatrice says that she born in Rome in 1989. “I took a degree in Architecture in Rome at the university “Roma Tre” and then I went to Milan to take a post graduation course at MiMaster where I obtained a master in editorial illustration. During my university years I’ve never stopped cultivating my inclination towards illustration taking part in a number of illustration courses and competitions, in order to keep challenging and improving my skills. In 2012 I won the second prize at the contest Talent Next at Pisa Book Festival and I was selected at Secret7″ contest. Thanks to MiMaster my works have been featured on The New York Times, Liber Magazine and Picame Mag. ”
Her observations are superb, these kids above made me smile by they way that they were saying ..”but I want cake”. The placement of her characters is also very clever. Bringing the viewpoint down to the child’s perspective, makes the viewer see things differently and gives the child more importance in the illustration too. Like in the illustration below where the headless adults get on with their day to day life, whilst our world stops for the little girl to notice a bee.
Beatrice does like to play with different drawing media, textures and pattern. Probably another reason I spotted her work.
Her scenes have a serenity about them. Calm not chaos, peaceful both in their colour and perspective.
Her collections also caught my eye, I love the way that some of these birds are just outlines and that they are drawn differently, even within the same illustration.
Plants and space.
We are just the casual observers of the world Beatrice wants us to see. Sometimes it’s great just to be taken on that journey and not have to get there on your own : ) Keep up the wonderful work Beatrice and good luck with your two careers!
