Who is Frelly?

Enrico Focarelli Barone, alias Frelly, is a full-time freelance illustrator with more 10-year experience

born in Catanzaro, Calabria, south Italy. Actually based in Rome.

He graduated from the European Institute of Design in 2012 and, after finishing his studies, he started his career as an editorial and conceptual illustrator for publishing and advertising studios.

Pastel colors, simple lines, surreal worlds and a wise use of textures are the common thread of his illustrations where dreams and reality meet.

He loves traveling, Vespa, volleyball and, of course, drawing.
