Alessandra Viola is a self-taught Italian abstract artist, her paintings have been collected by art lovers across the globe. Alessandra’s work possesses that unique quality found in all great art;- it connects on a deep level with the viewer and elicits a strong emotional response. Through her bold use of colour, texture and evocative abstract forms, she draws the observer into her world, tapping into a broad range of emotions. The intention is always to create art that moves and lifts you out of the ordinary world but can often be very personal in its meaning to the individual.
Alessandra’s work centres around her combinations of texture and colour, the acrylic paint latching onto the plaster she often applies to her base coat, creating depth and intrigue when the light hits it from different angles. She loves to use a variety of implements from wide brushes to spatulas, pallet knives and squeegees to apply the paint in striking colour combinations or at times, shades of the same colour to create the intended mood.
Alessandra’s creative process starts with her inspired loosely by a striking memory and although she will work to see its fruition, it is common that the idea evolves into something else as she allows her emotions and intuition to dictate where she should go. The abstract form gives her the creative freedom to do this.
Creating art makes me feel free, it is my time without time, I am painting following my mood, my feelings and my energy slide on the canvas through my brushes.
Each painting has its own story, it is my perception of the world in constant evolution.
Art can be expressed in many ways, it is up to each of us to find our own.
Although I have been inspired by numerous abstract artists over the years, I am taking new inspiration all the time, from my experiences and travels. From the incredible scale of street art on the side of a building in Berlin to the neon signs covering Tate Britain or the sights and shapes, I encounter on a local walk along the River Thames. Hopefully, this keeps it interesting enough for you to come back for another look!
Please feel free to contact me about my work, I will be happy to answer all your questions. Thank you for your interest in my art.
All my artworks are created at my home/studio in London. They are made with passion and love for art. I find my inspiration through everything around me; natural elements, people, travelling, transferring all my emotions on canvas.
“Great art is the outward expression of an inner life of the artist, and this inner life will result in his personal vision of the world.”Edward Hopper
