Lorenzo Petrantoni was born in Genoa in 1970.
After graduating in a graphical school in Milan he started working as an art director for Young & Rubicam France
and later on moved back to Italy where he still lives and works.
His passion for graphic design together with a passion for the period of the late ‘800 brought him to create illustrations, through
the assembly of images retrieved from old dictionaries of that period, giving life again to books, events and characters that would otherwise
have been forgotten on the shelves of some dusty bookshop.
He has created numerous advertising campaigns for Nike, Urban Outfitters, Burton Snowboards and other prestigious international companies,
collaborated with the most popular international magazine and displayed his works in various exhibitions all around the world.
The illustrations have been published: Time, Time Out New York, The New York Times, Business Week, Newsweek, Wall Street Journal,
Los Angeles Times, Harvard Business Review, Chicago Magazine, Columbia Business School, Wired, GQ, Billboard Magazine, Sunday Magazine,
Cigar Aficionado Magazine, La Repubblica, Sole 24 Ore, El Pais, The Globe, ETC.
