Fausto Gilberti was born in 1970. He is a thin little man, with big and staring eyes, with a static and flat body, and a surprised and puzzled look. His ideal place is the kitchen where he works, drawing day and night on a table that was used to make pork salami.
He won the ACACIA Prize at MiArt 2004 and the CAIRO Prize in 2007, he has a record of over a hundred group and solo exhibitions, national and international. For the last three years he has also devoted himself to illustrated books and he has published with Corraini — the publishing house from Mantua — the book Rockstars, a sort of very personal illustrated history of rock music; and L’Orco che mangiava bambini, his first book for kids. He lives and works in Brescia.
