“I collect thoughts of cats, autumns and dirty things.”
The young Sicilian illustrator Rosario Ferraloro in art “dolori intercostali” draws situations and events recurring every day in our lives with devastating simplicity.
Rosario Ferraloro is an engineering graduate from the University of Palermo, but despite this commitment, he does not abandon art, one of his passions.
A creative style that at first glance can be natural and obvious, but in reality, it is the opposite, he manages to convey a lot while always remaining linear and synthetic in his sentences.
Few and essential lines, but with a decisive stroke they manage to capture the attention of those who know how to look at them, every simple illustration, in fact, has a precise meaning behind it.
A handwriting trembles, absolutely one of his distinctive traits, as if he sometimes struggles to share his message to those who follow him.
Sometimes melancholy, sometimes reflective, his “dolori intercostali” are children of a handful of memories.
The artist always manages to propose characters and subjects that are almost always different, but that remain connected to the only common thread, him and his cat.
In his cartoons, he simply wants to enclose and talk about current problems and not only, discussing them in an ironic but never trivial way.
Everything seems a beautiful mixture of phrases, perfumes, and dry tears that remain stuck in the ribs and when the weather changes you feel like intercostal pains.
