Virginia Mori is an Italian artist

She lives and works in Pesaro and Milan. She studied animation and design at the State Art Institute in Urbino. During this time she nurtured and honed her distinctive artistic imagination. Her favourite media are pencil, ink, and ballpoint pen on paper. In 2008 she won the “SRG idee suisse” prize at the “Annecy call for project” during the International Festival of Animation at Annecy, France. This enabled her to produce her first short film, “il gioco del silenzio” (“The Play of Silence”), which has won nominations and accolades at international events, launching her career as an illustrator and director of animated shorts. At the same time she has worked freelance for a number of clients and galleries like Withstand (Milan), for whom she created the illustrations for the video “Walt Grace’s submarine test, January 1967” by John Mayer, directed by Virgilio Villoresi and the animated book “Vento”, Blu Gallery (Bologna), Fendi (Rome), Valentino (Milan), Galleria Disastro (Milan) and 25Films (Paris), Club Sensible Gallery (Paris), Pelledoca editore, Penguin Random House (Spain), Edizioni EL, Einaudi Ragazzi, Vogue Arts, Gucci, Feltrinelli editore, Bollati e Boringhieri, Mini, Sammontana, Film Tv magazine, Libreria di Frusaglia, il Venerdì di Repubblica, Popshot magazine, The Washington Post, Virginia Living, 5280 Magazine, Domestika
