1st Place Bio:
I was born in Cagliari in 1973, in the beautiful Sardinia island, a harsh land of strong flavours and emotions. I would often stare at the sea horizon dreaming of capturing it for good. This is how I had my first contact with colors and canvases, while trying to capture the taste of those images to hang them on a wall.
I’ve lived in England, Germany, France, Spain and then became a professional traveler as an air stewardess. In Tuscany I met my husband. I moved to Florence, where my artistic growth was taken to the next level.
My husband’s association with martial arts inspired me to paint martial artists, samurai, geishas, sports celebrities and more (receiving significant commissions in Italy and abroad).
I’m specialized in acrylic realistic portraits on fine linen. Every soft fold, every detail, the highlights bring my paintings to life. The obsession for perfection in all details proves my very special sensibility in the process, I merge with my technique to such an extent that I become one with the soul of the subject I paint. This is how I manage to carve the white canvas with colors, exposing it with detail and emotions from reality, that very image, that moment, which will last forever. www.raffaellausai.com
