Massimo Fenati – Illustrated Comic Books

  • Credits of the picture to Massimo Fenati from Arte Pinguina

    Donna Fugassa, as part of its Fügassa & Arts series, proudly have in store and sell Massimo Fenati‘s beautiful and witty illustrated comics books like his latest work ARTE PINGUINA (Artpieces from MoPA, Museum of Penguin Art).

    Massimo was born in the Italian town of Genoa, the homeland of focaccia, but has lived in London for over 20 years.

    After a childhood spent on comics and picture books, Massimo thought that being a cartoonist wouldn’t pay the bills and decided to become a product designer instead, working at some of the most important British design studios: Jasper Morrison, Pentagram and David Chipperfield Architects.

    But destiny didn’t let him get away with just being a designer and his new career as a cartoonist started unexpectedly in 2005.

    His first work was a series of books on a couple of gay penguins named Gus&Waldo: Gus & Waldo’s Book of Love (2006), Gus & Waldo’s Book of Fame (2007) and Gus & Waldo Book of Sex (2008). These were translated in 6 languages, published in several foreign countries and turned into an animation that got a number of festival awards.

    Massimo has also published a humour book titled 101 Uses For a Dead Meerkat (2011) and regularly produces motion graphics for programmes for BBC, Channel 4, ITV and Sky. He runs a cartoon food blog on the website of the Italian Newspaper Corriere della Sera. He’s also the proud owner of a 44 year old sourdough starter and is an amateur but passionate baker.
