Rasato is an emerging illustrator and graphic designer currently based in Shanghai, China. Committed to exploring the relationships between humans and the world they inhabit, his work reveals often disregarded connections and experiences of life. For example, through drawing trees and people, he questions himself and his surroundings.

In this way, personal thoughts, passions and values are revealed to the audience and community. Combining digital painting with traditional media such as coloured pencils, acrylic and charcoal, allows him to comprehend the significance of illustration and its boundaries. By using visual arts practice to establish intimate connections with fellow human beings, Rasato attempts to redefine the field of contemporary illustration as an infinitely diverse and productive area of creative possibility.
