Silvio Cadelo is an Italian comic book artist. After working as an industrial designer, advertising professional, poster artist, and a stint with an experimental theater troupe, Silvio Cadelo finally turned to comics in 1979.
In 1981, he released his first book, Skeol, inspired by the school of Métal Hurlant, and, most significantly, Moebius. Cadelo displayed a propensity for creatures with exotic morphologies and began to work with Alejandro Jodorowsky. They produced Le Dieu Jaloux and L’Ange Carnivore, two stories later reprinted as La Saga d’Alandor, before diverging over creative differences. Nevertheless, these works made him known and have familiarized the public with his particular style imbued with symbolism.
In 1987, for the magazine À Suivre, Silvio Cadelo continued the adventures of Envie de Chien, previously created in Frigidaire. This character is his most famous creation and his favorite. He also produced two erotic albums, Perverse Alice and La Fleur Amoureuse, first published in L’Écho des Savanes.
