Simone Rea is an accomplished artist and illustrator, born in 1975 in Albano Laziale where he lives and works today.
After studying at the Fine Arts Academy in Rome he showed an interest in illustration and participated in special courses organized by the Foundation Sarmede in Treviso. This way he started his artistic career by developing his characteristic 2-D graphic style. He creates surreal atmospheres, fantastic creatures, half human and half animal, represented by a subtle delicacy that is nearly melancholic.
His passion for art history and the world of illustration is reflected in all his works. The artists he likes most are Hieronymus Bosch, Toulouse Lautrec, Marcel Duchamp, Carll Cneut, Beatrice Alemagna and Lorenzo Mattotti.  In 2006 he was selected at the competition Figures Futur in France with two illustrations inspired by Alice in Wonderland. In 2008 he was selected for the exhibition of Illustrators at the Bologna Children Book Fair and again in 2011. Last summer 2011 he had his personal exhibition entitled “Humans and other Animals” at La Casina di Raffaello at Villa Borghese in Rome. (fishinkblog.com)
