Artist of the week: Simona Stivaletta


Simona Stivaletta is an Italian artist born in Vasto in 1970, who savoured her diverse studies including puppetry and restoration of antiques in Florence.

Influenced by these experiences and by artists such as Klee, Lowry, Mondrian and Wallis, the artist created a unique and timeless language to connect past and present.
Described as “deceptively naif”, Stivaletta’s work discloses an intriguing capacity to blend different pictorial traditions from across time and space.

Even though her work is such deeply influenced by the past, the artist finds a way to show the viewer an insight of her vision of the conjunction between past and present. As a result Stivaletta achieves a “musical” composition by the mingle of forms and colours, both poetic and harmonious.
