I’m Stefania Chiaselotti and I work for a publishing house as a graphic designer. For some years I have been dedicating myself to black on paper, to the creation of characters that arise exclusively from symbols, graphic signs, numbers and letters. The idea is in fact called Tipanera, baptized with a small booklet with drawings made on the computer and printed black on white. White paper, black ink, printing on various papers, transparent resin for small jewels.
White paper or cardboard for very small, small or oversized prints: strictly black as the ink.
But Tipanera goes beyond the typographic sign, in its decorative meaning, it becomes a drawing, it appropriates the paper, the wall, and contextualizes itself in the spaces. If Tipanera leaves the stories, it does so with the sense of getting involved and becoming an ‘atypical citizen’ of places, objects and accessories. The characters multiply and invade the spaces, observing themselves as funny, ironic and different protagonists of small or large “stories”.
