Graduated from the Institute Design Palladio in Verona with a degree in Graphic Design and Advertising Design, Emi Haze is an Italian freelance digital artist and illustrator with a strongest passion for art and painting connected to technology.
His digital works are a mixture of textures and hand-drawn ink marks, acrylic or watercolour stains.
Piles of tree branches, clouds forming hair, faces that melt with air and sky, human silhouettes that arise from expanses of earth and roots...
In the “ethereal world” of Emi Haze, human body merges with nature and its four elements of fire, air, water and earth to give birth to his inner world, visionary and imaginative, hanging in balance between reality, dream and fantasy, in which color and sensitivity have the predominant role.
An art that at first glance stands out for its aesthetic beauty, given by countless graphic and natural elements, which while immersed into a deep and immense ocean of colors shape themselves around a perfect human figure.

The human being merges 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 plance of change.
The result is the vision of an imaginative world hanging between reality and fantasy, dream and utopia and in which color and sensitivity have the predominant role. An harmony that binds man and nature in a perfect way and which unfortunately nowadays seems to be a utopia.
Piles of tree branches, clouds forming hair, faces that melt with air and sky, human silhouettes that arise from expanses of earth and roots... this is my visionary world.
Some of these artworks had been chosen for international advertising campaign by several big brands and agencies like Adobe, Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and Wacom.
