About the author

Stefano Berganto was born in Switzerland and studied Fine Arts in Paris, France from 1986 to 1990. He works as an artist, illustrator and author

At the age of 18, I traveled to the "City of Lights" to deepen my artistic and cultural knowledge and to breathe the mythical air of Paris.

After seven years, I settled in Geneva with a portfolio full of drawings, notes and sketches from those years of artistic creation. When I looked at it one fine day, the memories came to life and formed a story: Yopiki was born and the foundation for a series of books was laid.

Art is the golden thread that runs through my life and it's not hard to see that I thrive on creative work. My writings and drawings reveal a poetic approach that places the vibrant colours of life at the centre of my visual stories.
