Hello! My name is Maria Costantini, I am a painter who also creates jewellery. I grew up with my father's enthusiasm for art, the odd drawings my mom used in her story-telling, and the smell of wood from my grandparents' house.
I have also studied other subjects but I have always remained firmly grounded in art and manual crafts. Every moment for me is an opportunity to savour colours and shapes.
My work combines values, memories, symbols ponderings and random chance. I assemble and associate things be they large, small, precious or commonplace, the hidden colours and the gaudy ones, found everywhere such as in a neighbourhood, on sidewalk tiles, or a house, a body, a day.
I try to pass on my passion to those who wish to wrap themselves in and see colour, harmony, contrast, surprise and joy.
My works are carefully executed as well as colourful and playful. Where there was nothing, my work fills the space with something colourful and good.
