Paola Pagano Studio is a creative studio specialised in illustration and pattern design. Its focus is on creating original work and products that stand out.
Paola is a Milan-based illustrator with a weak spot for watercolour (and pizza).
She graduated in Graphic Design and multimedia at La Sapienza, in Rome and after spent 6 years in NYC working for a variety of institutions and brands. She recently moved to Milan.
A naive graceful touch and a colourful, moody palette of textures characterise her work, yet there is a certain melancholic energy in her work that conveys a subtle unease and often a dark humor.
It has been written of her work : "When I was reviewing Paola's work I was immediately struck by the depth, richness, and emotion within each pattern. Her work is simple in some ways, yet so powerful and enchanting"
