“make your life a dream, and a dream a reality”
antoine de saint-exupéry
Chiara Del Vecchio is an Italian artist born in Milan, Itali. Currently, Del Vecchio maintains studios in New York City and Milan. In these private ateliers she produces Neo-Expressionist paintings as well as sculpture. She paints in both oil and acrylic, often incorporating mixed-media, collage and resin.
For over 10 years Del Vecchio has built a body of work, which varies significantly in motif, though consistently explores themes of sexuality, opulence, and vitality in his signature style. In this distinctive hand, Del Vecchio layers fantasy and reality, luring the viewer into her potent, cosmically beautiful world. Known for her signature "Incontri" series, which first gained her critical acclaim, more recent work focuses on themes including her attention to the Invisibiles where sge exposes her deeply poetic imagination by incorporating text and visual cues into many of her works. In this way, her images coax the viewer into her realm where fact and fiction persist simultaneously, fortifying each other’s beauty, depth, and meaning.
Named an "artist to watch," in 2011 was selected by Vittorio Sgarbi to participate at the 54 Venice Biennale of International Art.
Another illustrious milestones for Del Vecchio was preparing a poignant, commemorative painting for the Holy Father, commissioned and donated by the State of San Marino and produced in a limited edition of a postage stamp.
She currently lives and works in new York and Milan.
