Alessandra Chiappini was born in Piacenza in 1971 and graduated with distinction in painting at Brera Academy of fine arts in Milan under Paolo Baratella. Her mythological/philosophical thesis on Dionysus was later published in various issues. She has also studied in Dijon, Venice, London (UAL, St Martin’s) and Barcelona. Over time she has achieved a style that originates from a gathering of memories and archetypes which recreates images of vast landscapes, using solid brushstrokes that have immediacy and tend towards abstraction. She exhibits solo and collectively in Italy and abroad and has been collaborating for a number of years with the Scoglio di Quarto arts centre in Milan.
