After years dedicated full time to music, he decided to resume his first passion, closed for so long in a drawer, drawing. He began to ink black on white the emotions he felt and from that moment on everything happened. His illustrations reach thousands of followers in a few weeks, becoming known on the web, where every day he is followed by many people. After a short time also came the editorial consecration, in fact Rizzoli published his first collection of illustrations.

Finché regge il cuore, BUR Rizzoli

A contemporary love story in the simplicity of a black and white stroke: uncertainties, abandonment, looks, silences, small daily gestures, impulses capable of overcoming every fear. Gianluca Gallo’s minimal and powerful drawings know how to win people’s hearts thanks to their disarming sincerity, embodied by two vulnerable protagonists who invite us to mirror ourselves in the emotions we are afraid to express, and to follow the lines of an illustrated poem in which to find our tiny universe. In all its melancholy beauty.
The book, which has just been released, was 4th in the Amazon Bestsellers list and 1st on the IBS Internet Book Store and won some awards for emerging publishing. Finché regge il cuore, it has also struck the international market, in fact Korea and Japan have decided to publish his collection of illustrations.

On Tuesday, April 28th you will find on Collater.al’s channel the making-of video of the unpublished work that will be auctioned on 32actions where it will remain until May 8th.
