Born and raised in Italy, Giordano Poloni has had a long history with art and illustration. He began working as an editor and motion graphic designer to several Italian-based advertising production companies in 2006. In 2010, he was commissioned to create illustrations for clients such as Volkswagen, The Guardian, The New York Observer, Wired UK and Einaudi. Inspired by his huge collection of comics, movies and photography books, and above all, color, he creates digital artworks highly reminiscent of his Italian heritage. His last book, ‘C’est toi mon papa?’, won several awards including a Gold Medal at the New York Society of Illustrators. 🎨

About the collection - “I really love painting landscapes and finding an original point of view that is easy to relate to. I’ve found that art is the cheapest way to travel and see places I’d like to visit. This job has had all these things I enjoy - bringing my friends and family together [on Houseparty] and visiting places I love.

In this collection, you can stare at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and a second later you’ve flown to Mount Fuji, Japan. I’m thankful to Houseparty for the amazing trip around the world!” - Giordano Poloni
