Vilma Maiocco


Born in Rome, she trained first at the Liceo Artistico di Via di Ripetta and then at the Istituto Europeo del Design. She has always cultivated a strong passion for art that led her to deepen over the years, in parallel with the acquisition of experiences in the field of advertising graphics, decoration and design of furnishing accessories, her pictorial research, which she considers a metaphorical journey of introspection, of self-knowledge. The constitutive datum of this journey starts from the feeling of belonging to one's own roots and culture. Existing or plausible landscapes are reinterpreted from a more rural to a metropolitan aspect. everything develops on an ultratemporal line and the building is never completed: the emblem of the ability, of the need to continually re-create oneself. In 2008 she exhibited her first solo show (I like to imagine) at the exhibition space "Bottega d'Arte", in the historic center of Chieti. This was followed, in the following years, by numerous solo shows throughout Italy, including Forma Libera Essenza (edited by Chiara Strozzieri) in Urbino at the Galleria Barocci repeated in the gallery La ricerca in Bergamo (2009), in Rome at the Lupigiada space in Via dei Fori Imperiali (2010) and in Rovereto (Appunti di viaggio) at the Sala Baldessari in 2011, the year in which he participated in the XXXVIII edition of the Premio Sulmona.
