BIOGRAPHY.

When we are kids, we all sat too close to the TV, droving our moms mad. We didn’t go blind as she over-exaggeratingly suggested, but we did discover a magic world composed of millions of tiny colorful dots on the screen. Only after few years we discovered that those dots are called pixels, and they work together as micro spots of color to create the broad image that we perceive as our pictures, movies or TV show. But it doesn’t end here. Anything with a display screen, as smartphone and laptop, most likely uses pixels to build an image. Pick up a newspaper and look very closely: pixels.

We might not notice it but we are surrounded by pixels.

Italian artist Chiara Del Vecchio uses a similar technique to create her breath-taking paintings.

Chiara Del Vecchio was born in Milan in 1985. Since the beginning of her career, Chiara decided to combine her passion for motors and painting, while striving to become one of Europe’s leading emerging artists. After her studies at the Boccioni High School of Art in Milan she joined the law faculty at the University of Milan and she continues her artistic career by attending courses at prestigious colleges and universities in Italy and abroad, such as the renowned Central Saint Martins of London and Accademia delle Belle Arti di Brera in Milan.

But it does not end here. During her personal path of research, she develops interesting collaborations with Mondadori e other Companies as Ferrari and Alfa Romeo.

Supported personally by the illustrious Prof. Carlo Franza and other internationally renowned art-curator such as Vittori Sgarbi, who immediately identifie her figurative genius, she established herself in the Italian and European art world. In addition to galleries in Turin, Brussels and London that deal with her works regularly, significant appearances are organized and others are scheduled in Milan, Rome, Florence, Venice, Portofino, Berlin, Essen, Monaco, Monte Carlo and Paris.

In 2013 the State of San Marino commissions an art-work that is given to the Holy Father, which was produced in a limited edition of a postage stamp.

In 2011 she was selected by Vittorio Sgarbi to participate at the 54 Venice Biennale of International Art - Italian Pavilion - Turin.

She was also a candidate for the XIII Prize of Arts and Culture 2011 and the youngest artist included in the Catalogue of Modern Art, CAM 47, edited by Cairo Editore.

She currently lives and works in London and Milan.




THE OLD ERA. THE FIRST YEARS.

Immersed in the din of the two cities, Chiara takes a journey of reflection and research, which demonstrates a deep knowledge of several representative techniques.

Her conception of art is based on the uniqueness and unrepeatability of the creative gesture. Filling the empty space through the action of the artist, the work assumes a deep meaning of truth and form through research, distant memories and at the same time a deep intimacy with herself.

What strongly characterizes the activity of this young artist is her attention to the hyper-civilization of our age. Through the choice of pictorial subjects, which evoke the nostalgia of return to simple values, Chiara describes her vision of mankind and reality, composed of artificial elements but sometimes sprinkled with magic… maybe the dream of a distant memory of how we were.

Chiara does not lose the importance of excellent artistic techniques in her work. So that the recovery of the value of manual and craft of making art are never separated by a continuous search for artistic avant-garde. In her works, which is the predominant emphasis on the creative quality and execution of every work of art developed with particular attention and precision, there is a particular balance between innovation and tradition.

The contrast between the present and the past can be found both in the themes and technique. So that the artist is able to skillfully combine ancient techniques, such as graphite and china, to more modern forms, materials and colors, while never forgetting the deep origins of painting. 

HER NEW WORLD. THROUGH THE FUTURE.

After her artistic studies and works in the design sector, in 2008 Chiara Del Vecchio chooses to pursue her greatest passion: painting.

During the first years her artistic careear, her work was characterised by a meticolusy research of perfection and irrepitability of the artistic gesture. Over the years, her works became always more abstract. Chiara explores new techiniques of painting, swiching from china to acrylic colors, up to lead to the oil colors, her real passion.

Throught evident brush strokes and thick splashes of colors, she confronts the viewer with raw images, maily portraiture as a subject, mysteriously situated in decorative and non-figurative spaces.

From the black and white era, now her work is surrounded by colors. Her ispiration comes from the hypertecnologic world where we live in.

When we are kids, we all sat too close to the TV, droving our moms mad. We didn’t go blind as she over-exaggeratingly suggested, but we did discover a magic world composed of millions of tiny colorful dots on the screen. Only after few years we discovered that those dots are called pixels, and they work together as micro spots of color to create the broad image that we perceive as our pictures, movies or TV show. But it doesn’t end here. Anything with a display screen, as smartphone and laptop, most likely uses pixels to build an image. Pick up a newspaper and look very closely: pixels.

We might not notice it but we are surrounded by pixels.

Her latest series of paintings - Poli Opposti - which will be presented at the beginning of 2017 and currently in production, represents her deeper artistic maturation. At the center of her paintings there is almost always a human face with the looks and the stories that a facial skin can tell and the feelings that the reflection in the eyes may suggest.

30 paintings that will be displayed in pairs will rapresent the contrast of the today civilisation and an implied prayer. Men and women, different religions or ages, black and white, heterosexual and homosexual. There is no difference in the face and in the eyes of a man...because at the end we are all the same.

Many exhibitions are already organised for the 2017, in Europe and America.
