Collection: Valentina

Valentina is a 59 year old Italian artist.
She was raised in a household filled with books about psychotherapy(her mother's vocation), law (her father's vocation) and art (her father's hobby and passion).
Her dad was the first person who taught her how to use brushes and transform art into colours. He also painted a copy of Klee's painting in her childhood room. Her mother instead, showed her how to look beyond appearances and embrace metaphoric communication.

Valentina lived in Milan and Florence, where she attended the International University of Art. Over the last 28 years, she has worked as a painter and fresco restorer in Italy, France and Germany. She moved to London in 2018

I love to create my work with oil, acrylic and water colours, or to experiment with everyday products and heterogeneous materials, such as glues, resins, golden leaf,plastic leads, metallic powder or silk filaments, using canvases of all sizes and shapes. I started my career painting landscapes, mostly inspired by British romantic painters such as Constable and Turner, or French impressionists such as Pissarro.

Recently, however, I have become more focused on abstract art, which I believe can often create more immediate emotions. Indeed, I love Klee, Kandinskij, as well as Frederich Hundertwasser (an Austrian architect). I am always looking for new techniques and tools to "talk" to people through colours and art. To do this, I sometimes use poetic communication by mixing quotes with artform. I also believe contradiction is a sign of progress and authenticity, so, as an artist I contain " multitudes", and so does my art.
