Thread and Nail Portraits by Pamela Campagna
Thread and Nail Portraits by Pamela Campagna and Thomas Scheiderbauer seem to be clean and pure geometrical. Pamela Campagna is a self-taught graphic designer. After working for various cultural organizations such as Franklin Furnace Archive in New York, Pistoletto Foundation in Biella and Esterni in Milan, in 2006 she moved to Seville, where she co-founded with Thomas Scheiderbauer L-ABLE, a small itinerant design studio, concentrating its graphic work on cultural and social issues.
L-able has designed several campaigns for Solidaridad Internacional and his creations have been used by the WWF, by Piemonte Parchi, by Tufts University in Medford (Massachusetts) and by UNICEF to illustrate social problems.
Their work has been exhibited in several museums, cultural centers, galleries such as the CAS – the Art Center of Seville, Arts decoratifs – Palais du Louvre in Paris, Triennale in Milan, Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome, Galleria Civica di Modena, the National Museum of La Paz and also exhibited in international graphic events such as Graphisme dans la Rue in Paris, ManifestaZOOne in Cuneo, 100% Design in Tokyo and Seoul, the triennial AntiAIDS Ukraine-Kiev, the 11th Triennial of Political Posters in Mons (where they were awarded with the 3rd
prize for the creation of a work about freedom of expression) and they will attend the 18th Lahti Poster Biennial in Finland.
L-able was also part of the pre-selection jury of poster4tomorrow a well known graphic competition on social issues.
At the moment L-able is based in Polignano a Mare, on a small terrace overlooking the sea.
