Hi, my real name is Emanuele Pepi, I was born on 9th November of 1986 in Ragusa (Sicily, Italy).
I make art for a living and it usually is through the way of graphic design, illustration, pixel-art, logo design, game development and music production... I make more other things in my life, but they're not relevant to this general description of my work as an artist.
As an artist, I'm still "growing up", learning new techniques, learning new theories, my studies haven't finished yet and they never will. I've earned a degree in Graphic Design at the Academy of Fine Arts of Catania, but I trust my own method and I'm currently studying on my own all the subjects that I find useful to complete my skills and improve even more.
I challenge the rules, but I believe that rules must exist. They just need to be... questioned more often. Graphic composition has too many dogmas, I want to simplify them to the necessary, I'm not willing to use any "trick" to make the viewer like what I do, I'd rather do what I like and let the viewer agree with me or not. It's about freedom of choice, not loyalty to rules. Human beings are free, so must be their art. If we make things just to please the rules, then we can achieve order... but not art, as art has always questioned the order itself. Of course, thought, we must know what order is, or else we can't challenge it, and that's why I'm continously studying whenever I can, continuously learning what I think it's necessary for my personal, intellectual and artistic growth.
In this gallery I show what I think they're my best works, including drawings and illustration which I've made by following various digital and traditional techniques.
Please let me know if the prices are too high or too low, or.... whatever, I'm free and available for any critique.
Enough said, I guess, one last thing, check my website : http://emanuelepepi.altervista.com it contains all my work, my info and my other internet profiles!
