Meet the Illustrator: Olimpia Zagnoli

One of my favorite contemporary illustrators is Olimpia Zagnoli who lives and works in Milan. This short film, made by Mercedes Benz, introduces her and shows us how thoughtful she is as a maker and a communicator.


Non-Stop Curiousity


“To all the young students watching, and listening, I want to emphasise that feeding one’s imagination is an ongoing task – a journey of curiousity and discovery can never stop. There is no arrival. It is a process, and perhaps the most significant player in it, is time.

Critical thinking, creativity and collaboration are the three tenants on which I have built my entire understanding of being an artist.”
