Simona Fedele 🇮🇹
Portraits from Italy
Simona was born in 1967 in Udine, Italy, where she still lives and works today. Despite the geographical distance to the art capitals of the world, she has managed to present her works worldwide. Twenty years ago, an Italian gallery made sure that her art reached America. Today she exhibits worldwide and is especially popular on the European art market. The self-taught artist did not attend an art school. She has been painting since she was a child and took up portraiture early, beginning to paint her younger siblings. Simona never wanted to be an artist and modestly tells that even today she would not call herself one.
The self-taught artist knows how to capture sensuality, beauty and self-irony on canvas. In her works, she combines reality and fiction through the photorealistic representation of women. Colors, as well as materials overlap. Parts of the canvas were torn and reconstructed. Although a lot happens in the paintings and there is much to discover, they radiate harmony.
Simona Fedele experiments a lot with different materials. Canvas, fabric, stucco, cement, leaves, flowers, paper and cardboard of all kinds served as materials. It is important to her that these are as recyclable as possible and do not contain polluting substrates.
