Sabrina Gabrieli – Illustrator & Poster Artist
Hi! My name is Sabrina Gabrielli but, since university, friends call me Bri.
I am an illustrator, designer, and poster artist, I work with creative agencies, publishers, and international artists and bands. Here you can jump to my portfolio website.
I began my career as a product designer, a job that was too tight for me, so at the end of 2011, I decided to return to my first passion: illustration.
To promote my work I started a collaboration with a music venue here in Rome, and for two years, I designed a new poster every two weeks. It was a long commitment, but it helped me to receive my first work contracts as a freelancer.
In 2013 I started screen printing, after meeting the marvellous Ver Eversum guys who helped me put my very first poster on inks and paper.
Slowly I started to get in touch with band and promoters, my portfolio has grown month after month until I designed and printed for international artists such as Belle & Sebastian, The Flaming Lips, The Zombies, Editors, Courtney Barnett, Rufus Wainwright, Motorpsycho, The Dandy Warhols, The Horrors and… all the other bands you can find in this website!

Since 2016 I’m in the API, an association that brings together international poster artists who design and print official gig posters.
Every year I exhibit at the Flatstock (poster artist exhibition market organized by API) in Barcelona, during the Primavera Sound Festival, and in Hamburg at the Reeperbahn Festival.
Thanks to screenprint and poster art, I rediscovered the magic of the story through an image, the wonder of hand-printed paper in its small imperfections, in the relief and scent of colour.
I love to share what I’ve learned during these years, so I periodically organize screen printing workshops for those who want to experiment with artisan printing, even at home: I started printing in my kitchen!
