Antonella Privitera



Antonella Privitera was born in Rome in Sicilian family on the 19/05/1960.

Antonella Privitera started her artistic career a few years ago with great personal satisfaction: her work is present in various private collections even in the houses of fashion and enterprising personalities.
She spends a lot of time in Africa, teaching "Art and Creativity" in Kenya's schools. Thanks to the experiences in the land where everything has started,  her creations are the reflection of a spiritual path and inner growth in search of the sacred meaning of Namasté: " my soul greets your soul." Over the years, she has not interrupted the production of art, especially during those periods of life that today, after years, Antonella calls "intense and decisive", letting it be understood as the artistic expression for the Roman artist , that Art for her has never been an accessory, but the very essence of one's own existence.

Antonella, wife, mother and active professional, after spending a few days in the Fendi Press Office, becomes the designer of her own swimsuit line. After the experience in fashion world, she begins to look for the same color combinations that she used to compose in the fabric, giving it a new life on supports such as wood or metal: her favorite materials "as the base of a recognized and recognizable style". The coldness of the metal is warmed, not only, in contact with the heat emanated from the wood, but also by the approach to other elements that belong to the earth, such as the stones and sand collected in journeys in every part of the world. Most of the work where Buddhist philosophy emerges, are characterized by a marked antithesis between a strong structural intensity and a human figure, mostly feminine, whose presence is sometimes only suggested and others (often dramatically) represented. Her artwork investigates spiritually about the mystery of life and encounters, becoming a tangible representation. Antonella's new poetry, premiered this week of RAW the concern for a world increasingly deprived of its political, social, climatic and economic stability ; the world is changing, we feel unable to come up with effective solutions. This is the foundation of Antonella Privitera's most recent artistic production, and is from here that one seems to coach , despite all, a glimmer of light of hope: In these pieses the world is black gets burnt, cut out, but the crystals gets squashed onto the better surface  implies the idea of brightness. Antonella truly suggest there's rebirth beyond the shattering.
