Artist's Statement/Bio-Award winning Italian artist Federica Campagnari successfully incorporates the abstract imagery onto different media and styles which allows her to create visual elements that move in an endless interaction.
“ My artwork is an extension of my emotions, " she says. "It is a dreamlike dimension in which there are no rules and anything is possible."
Federica Campagnari has many years of experience in stained glass and textile designs which played an important role in her artistic endeavor. Originally from Verona, Italy, Federica Campagnari has paintings displayed in Italian and American venues including the County Art Museum of Los Angeles, Art Rental Gallery.
Tales of Inner City - In her abstract series titled “Inner City” (paintings) and "Tales of Inner City" (drawings), Federica Campagnari depicts the dynamism of a city by utilizing an interplay of colors, shapes, and sounds: an incessant flux of elements and emotions, a metaphor of our internal changes.
