Emi Haze, digital artist & illustrator.
Hello / I am Emi Haze.
Emi Haze graduated from the Institute
of Design in Verona with
a degree in Graphic Design
and Advertising Design.
I live in the north-east of Italy and my huge passion is digital art.
Art and painting connected to technology have always been my strongest passions.
People think I am calm, quiet, sometimes introvert, really creative, inspired and perfectionist.
In my opinion everything in every moment has an artistic side, the aesthetics of things, people around me…
for me everything has its own importance, images, textures, sounds, fragrances, my creativity is costantly stimulated.
In my first works i focused on a graphic style based on construction and deconstruction of the human body
using various tools and graphic effects that render it almost a sketch.
In my recent works I tried to merge the human body with nature or rather with the four elements of fire,
air, water and earth, and even with a fifth esoteric element: the Aristotelian ether, that includes all the others,
the essence of celestial bodies, eternal and unchangeable in comparison with the earth as a place of change.
The result is the vision of my imaginative world hanging between reality and fantasy, dream and utopia
and in which color and sensitivity have the predominant role.
Photoshop is the software I prefer to conceive my works, in which I also include the digital version of hand-made elements,
such as scratches and ink marks, acrylic or watercolor stains. The outcome is technically always appealing and intriguing.
Music is the key of this creative process. I could mention Sigur Rós, Radiohead, Bloc Party, Coldplay, Bjork etc.
I’m also fond of movies, I love every kind cinema, especially indie movies and art movies.
I collaborated with the agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners of San Francisco to be part of the Photoshop 25th Anniversary
special advertising campaign commissioned by Adobe. They licensed two of my artworks and one of them “Cosmogony
Reloaded” is on the Adobe Photoshop 25th anniversary “Dream On” Oscars Spot which was featured during the Academy
Award Oscars 2015 ceremony and was also used in other media as part of an international bigger campaign.
Today it has been watched over 2 million times on YouTube and recently has achieved three awards at Cannes Lions
International Festival of Creativity 2015, a Graphite Pencil D&AD Award, two AICP Awards and a nomination for
Outstanding Commercial at Emmy Awards 2015.
My work “Cosmogony Reloaded” was also used on adobe.com to present the new features of Adobe Creative Cloud 2015.
My works have been published on international digital arts magazines and specialized websites all over the world and
are on sale in many art galleries.
