Magda Chiarelli, pittrice performer e visual artist

Born in Milan and grown up between Emilia and Romagna, I have always brought back the enterprise and the eclecticism of the first place, joint with the enthusiasm and the joy of living of the second ones.

I started painting when I was a child, thanking to my family teachings and I continued following the studios of some maestros and drama schools: thanking to a degree in Modern Literature and another in Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, I started a new research on colour and painting and on the world of performance, installations and visual arts in general.

I am really interested in experiencing several media and materials and in proving myself with no limits to make my job increasingly meaningful and personal, so in 2017 I began the PhotoPaintingFusion, a technique in which a photograph and a painting specifically created are melted, losing concreteness and substance, in order to create the sensation of being immersed in a thick atmosphere with a different time and space thanking to their fusion: the colours are communication and magic, so we lose ourselves in their never-ending possibilities to feel every new evocation and this makes us free and give us the possibility of going out of our cages.
