Cesare Davolio


I am an Italian designer based in Rotterdam, operating as a freelance animator and illustrator, I also teach in the Illustration and Animation department at the Willem de Kooning Academy of Art and Design.

Through the medium of illustration and animation, I explore themes such as social justice, appreciation of the animal

world, and the peculiarities of everyday life.

Benefiting from the combination of cultural and commercial commissions, which in turn inspires my personal work, I have had the opportunity to work for a variety of clients, such as Amnesty International, Submarine Productions, and

collaborated on commercial projects with creative agency Shop-Around. My animations have been shown in international animation festivals.

I am influenced by folk art, textile patterns, mid-century design and animation.
