About me...

A multifaceted artist who ranges from painting to sculpture, design, poetry, illustration for children and visual design; Year of birth 1983, manifests her art through many forms and materials, an innate passion that soon met art and led her to exhibit her works as a young girl by actively participating in solo and group exhibitions, obtaining significant awards and recognition as well as positive critical acclaim. Graduated with honours in Visual Arts and Entertainment at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples, where she began a first important approach to the study of colour and sign through different methods from visual perception and experimentation with the same. She continued her studies qualifying herself as a Web and Graphic designer at the Istituto Superiore di Comunicazione ILAS (NA); for over ten years she has been working in her studio in Pompei in the continuous change from art to design. The art of Grazia Santarpia appears as the summary and exegesis of an intimate journey, a slow and meticulous journey towards the discovery of the self, assimilable in the experience to the only universal.
