I don't consider myself good enough to define my work, so I usually borrow these words some magazine put on me.

«Kero has been an artistic force for as long as she can remember. She prefers to take inspiration from images that aren’t proper illustrations and has a particular eye for pieces that aren’t too overworked or showy. That way the Italian, now London-based artist can uncover the true intention of the creator in order to best appreciate their work and understand her own.

Although she claims that she’s not yet fully satisfied with her own work, Kero pushes forward without selling out her style to conform to gallery or mainstream standards. Her work often stitches together imagery with text in a collage type of format, opting to proudly exhibit marks of the artist rather than trying to achieve a flawless or “cleaned up” approach. The results are graphic, colorful, and yet still contained and clearly thought out. Seems like her style is working, as she’s been turning out posters for musicians, filmmakers, and art heads.»
