I'm a Paris born, Italian artist and award winner freelance illustrator since 2006. 
My works are surreal, dreamlike, darkly and full of details. 
I like mistakes, the dark and the bright, the small surprises between the lines, and I love to use in my works an hyperbolic language.
To see more about my work, please visit my blog noumedacarbone.wordpress.com.

Recently my work was exhibited at The Illustration Biennial 2016 (Haarlem, The Netherlands), Palazzo della Triennale (Milan, Italy), WEAR(E) [Wear We Are] Exhibition, @ The Urban Garden Room at One Bryant Park (NY), Urban intimacy - The Strand Gallery (London).
