I’m Fiorella Gianini an Argentinian artist and designer, I lived in London for 6 years, and now I’m currently based in Barcelona. I merge my costume design and artistic background to create colourful and striking paintings. In 2018, I was the winner of MelissaNext competition. Me shoe design was launched at Galeria Melissa London and sold worldwide.
I’m driven by trying to provoke a strong reaction from the viewer. This developed from the first moments of my understanding of the contradiction between attraction and repulsion. This combination of feelings led me to my current project, “Beyond Process”.
My inspiration comes after I have started working with the mediums themselves, is an organic process in nature. I begin with a kernel of an idea, building generous layers of contrasting unrelated materials and creating form with texture. I work with a variety of materials and I also experiment with irregular surfaces, which allows the medium applied to fully penetrate the canvas. The whole process is documented in its different stages while the paint is still fresh, as I believe the piece to be more than the final result.
