My name is Cecilia and I'm an Italian-Argentinian artist based in Italy.
In 2013 I began to develop my artistic career in Buenos Aires. My first individual exhibition, inspired by the Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges, was presented at the "Borges Cultural Center" in 2016. The project was recommended by the Institute of Culture of Catalonia when it was presented at the Argentine Consulate in Barcelona. In 2018 it was sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Argentina and considered of cultural interest.
After an initial period in Paris, where I studied Art at university Paris 8, I decided to settle in Genova, Italy.
My artworks are in private collections all over the world and have been featured in “Forbes Argentina” magazine, HODINKEE, Watchonista, and Watch Books Only.
I work primarily on hyper-realistic, large-scale, oil paintings on linen and colored wax pencils on paper. I love to add different textures and color combinations to each artwork.
I'm currently working on a series of watch paintings and drawings inspired by vintage icons.
Using varied techniques to create precise details, my drawings and paintings can take a long time to be complete.
