My name is Giuditta Mello, but a long time ago I decided that the name for every improper activity I could have done in my life would have been “Antisocial Yards of Thought” (CANtieri ASociali del PENsiero).
Yards, because in my gourd there are so many projects that build and demolish themselves continuously.

My name is Giuditta Mello, but a long time ago I decided that the name for every improper activity I could have done in my life would have been “Antisocial Yards of Thought” (CANtieri ASociali del PENsiero).
Yards, because in my gourd there are so many projects that build and demolish themselves continuously.
Antisocial – with all the dignity that this word deserves – because I think that a right deal of isolation from the external buzz can make a difference in the survival of a creative mind.

I was born in those years when a girl dreamed of marrying Simon Le Bon, when the film “Ghostbusters” was showed in the cinemas, and the fact of having a hairstyle similar to a big Persian cat was not yet considered unbecoming.
I grew up in the countryside like a rustic tomboy, with permanently dirty and grazed knees in summer, and rheumatisms in winter.
I devoured as many films as possible, and I still do it; the fact of having been initiated to the cinema through Bergman and Truffaut should have deeply influenced my melancholic, rebel and a bit disturbed temperament.

My destiny, however, was already determined at the time of the nursery school: I couldn’t close my pencil cases easily, because they overflowed with coloured pencils, pink pens, felt-tips and all kinds of highlighters.
At the Arts High School I really learned how to draw, and I met my mentors and masters.
At the School of Fine Arts I discovered and immediately fell in love with engraving and graphics.
Thanks to The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design it has been my turn to enter the digital era, and I definitively decided that art and design had to be my future.
With this great mish-mash of old and new, mixed with Antoine Doinel, foggy days and a touch of red… I’m going on to where I want to be. Read Less
