Hallo, everybody. My name is Mara Braidotti. I was
born in Genova (Italy)
on 4th December 1965.
of you will expect to read :" I studied figurative art at the Art
Academy of... ", or " ...holder of a Diploma in Artistical Art
Design...". No, not at all! In fact
a musician and music teacher.
"What a musician's got to do with paint?", you could ask: "A lot!",
don't remember myself playing any instrument, but drawing since
was a little girl. I had a Diploma in Fashion Design, but a don't care
much about it.
don't feel shame when
almost an "autodidact" artist.
spent years and years trying to understand what a really wanted to do
with my life and time.
Since 2001, when
had my very first art exhibition,
found myself thinking:"I feel
A painter and nothing else!"
bit of encouragement, and the selling of a reasonable number of my oil
paintings and watercolours, helped me to find my own way. At the
beginnings a just paint for fun, for myself. Between colours and canvas
was having a kind of "personal catharsis" moment. Recently, When a saw
on web the huge number of artists from all over the world, and their art
works, I decided to share my own art with each one of you. About what I
put on canvas, my personal way to make art, I don't think there's much
to say. Just watch what i did!
dream in colours, not in black and white. My fantasy suggests me the
themes step by step.
hope you'll enjoy my way along this "complicated" path called ART.
