Valerio Schiti

Artist

Schiti counts himself as a proud native of Rome, Italy, born and raised in one of the world’s oldest centers of culture, where he came to appreciate art from a young age. “I always loved to draw since I was a little kid,” he reflects, “As soon as I learned how to hold a pencil, I started drawing all day long.” Early influences ranged from classic '80s cartoons to Italian comics featuring the likes of Mickey Mouse and others rendered by the likes of Dino Battaglia, Giorgio Cavazzano, Gianni De Luca, and Sergio Toppi. “At the time, I was more attracted by modern sci-fi stories," he notes, "but the pages of those amazing artists left an indelible mark on my imagination.”
