Artist Of The Month - Roberta Diazzi
Roberta Diazzi was born in Modena in the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy. The artist graduated in 1992 from “A. Venturi” art college, specialising in graphic techniques.
From the very start she understood the importance of the act of painting to achieve instant visual communication: the creative brush strokes of her oil painting give her works the great expressive impact that has since become her signature.
This signature, which connects to her most celebrated quality, truth, materializes itself through the texture of her canvases in the extraordinary effect of a very personal post-modern style of art. Even with explicit references to the great masters, including those of the recent past, Roberta manages to retain her own stylistic and expressive code. A code that can be traced back to the great artists of the international Pop Art movement, above all in the choice of colours: Andy Warhol with the mass production of his artwork, and Roy Lichtenstein with that original style based on comics.
It is this artistic mix that has made Roberta Diazzi’s works successful. It is not by chance that over the course of these years of intense activity she has received important commissions from illustrious Italian families, struck by the quality: including the Ferrari family, the Montezemolo family and Luciano Pavarotti.
That said, this artist from Modena is a thoughtful and eclectic painter: she often paints urban landscapes and vistas, showing signs of globalisation and the mix of artistic cultures typical of contemporary Neo-Pop, and which she, as a dynamic and sensitive artist, captures completely.
The result is therefore a picture in which the harmony of contrast combines with the appeal of the artistic style, giving the viewer the privilege of things done aesthetically well.
Roberta Diazzi has found her way into using certified Swarovski Crystals in a collection titled 'SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS' to give her portraits a greater impact and to create pieces of glamour. The number of crystals used can vary between 5000 to 20,000 and the crystal stones varyy between 1 and 4mm diametre, so that each space can be precisely filled. Some portraits are a mixed medium production using oil paints or resin, and the stones are used to add details such as earrings, necklaces, jewellery in general, or parts of clothing.
We adore Roberta Diazzi's work and it has been our guilty pleasure to choose 4 of our favourite pieces of her work.
