Ciro Marchetti has had a successful graphic design career that has spanned working in Europe, South America and the US. Parallel to his corporate design, he is also a renowned digital artist. Widely acknowledged by his peers in this field, his work has been featured in various books and magazines and he is a five-time recipient of the distinguished Photoshop GURU award, and three time winner of the Worldwide Photoshop Competition ( artistic category and grand prize) presented by the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, among many other competitions. The current content and style of recent illustrations directly reflects his sources of interest and inspiration. From early student days when he first came across the delicate pen and ink work of Arthur Rackham, to the discovery in later years of the beautiful characters of James Christenson, and surrealistic dream images of Michael Parkes. These combined with a personal collection of old mechanical instruments and artifacts such as compasses, theodolytes, sextants and kaleidoscopes provide the inspiration for creating richly detailed images that conjure up retro-tech worlds of fantasy and imagination.
