Also as an art director on various projects such as “Eurodynamics” – a multi cultural, multi-media European event for the “Life Long Learning Programme” of the E.U. He has created several animated videos including but not limited to, experimental, advertising, music videos, or insertions in movies, such as animated ads for the film: “il pezzo mancante” of Giovanni Piperno (winner of the “selezione” award at the Turin Film Festival 2010).

Musician and graphic artist Diego Cusano defines himself as a “fantasy researcher” who has translated his passions into a job. By watching things from a different point of view, Cusano started creating the illustrations that, since then, he has been publishing each day on the social networks. In the artworks displayed below, Cusano’s eccentric implementation of animals into his illustration provide a whimsical and 3D effect.
