Marco Goran Romano, an illustrator who previously worked with The New York Times, The New Yorker, among others, and for years illustrated the print editions of Wired Italia, works in Jesi. Next May 14 and until June 5, the designer will present his solo exhibition entitled “Always Hungry,” curated by Gianluca Folì and set up in the spaces of the Di-Se Artoteca in Domodossola.
The weekly magazine Adweek included Goran in its list of the 10 Best Young Designers, while Print Magazine in its list of 20 Under 30 New Visual Artists. On the occasion of “Always Hungry,” the artist will exhibit some of his most famous works, but also the 12 plates of Heritage. Sediments of Time, the 2022 edition of the Epson calendar that chronicles the world of crafts related to creativity since the 1920s.
Marco Goran Romano’s illustrations are many small stories realized through images and typographic signs that place him in a vein of illustrators linked to communication also written. It is no coincidence, then, that major publications have involved him in editorial projects, also thanks to his style and color palettes that show awareness in visual communication for paper and web. “We are what we feed on, visually” is how Romano sums up his artistic vision and which is realized in this exhibition.
Another element that visually defines the illustrator’s style is the attention to typography, Goran’s great passion and research topic, to be sought in every detail around us.
