Illustrator Olimpia Zagnoli (YG9) was recently interviewed by Ganzo Magazine, an online community dedicated to Italian taste, style, and people. In the article, Olimpia discusses her sense of humor, her love for New York, and how places evoke their own unique colors.
“I just came back from a two weeks trip around Sicily. Even though i’m Italian, I was blown away by the mix of unexpected colors and shapes the island has to offer. I don’t think there are a lot of places like that in the world. What I have learned to love about Italy is that you can have all kinds of scenarios and palettes, from tyrolean greens to the reds of prickly pears in the south. Milan to me is some sort of sage green, very discreet and smoky. New York is silver like the aluminium coating of its roofs, dark red like its bricks and fluorescent orange like its cocktails and its sunsets.”
