The journey of the artist behind the design of The Sandman
Chiampo worked for over two years for Disney and spent a lot of time designing the Netflix series.
“In this series, you see at least five drawings made by me in each episode”.
Even when Desiderio appears, in episode 7 titled “A Doll’s House” – the heart-shaped setting Desiderio lives in was made by Chiampo.
The Sandman is actually based on a comic created by Neil Gaiman and was designed by Sam Kieth in 1989, from which Chiampo drew inspiration for the Netflix series.

The collection deposited on SuperRare is titled “Futured Past” and includes illustrations full of symbolism.
Although the works appear to be made using lithography, they actually use 3D rendering and digital sculpting created with programs such as ZBrush with which Andrea create dreamlike creatures and worlds.
Chiampo has also shown its NFTs in several art exhibitions dedicated to the sector, such as at the DART in Milan, the Metaforum event in Luganoand the exhibition organized by the collector Poseidon DAO entitled “The future is not written” organized by Ivan Quaroni and Linda Tommasi.
