DATE OF BIRTH
Annalisa Cestelli was born in 1991 in the beautiful landscape of Chianti. She studied in L.B.Alberti high school, than she gradueted with honors in Sculpture at the Accademy of Fine Arts of Florence in 2015. She realized the first artistic route along the Pesa river in an unattended area(2015) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vImg5fmERL4 . She has exhibited at the Ghelli’s Museum (2018 )with curator Elisabetta Rogai, at the Fortress of Montalcino (2018), at the Florence Biennale (2019). She was the youngest member of the circle of artists "Casa Dante" (Florence) and she is a artist member of "ArtArt" (Impruneta). She worked at the art foundry "Art'ù.
She try to combine art with an ethical value.This is possible, in her opinion, through the union of the Platonic triad: the good, the beautiful, the true. Her art proposes the aim of the ancient and Renaiussence: to educate the best part of man. The forces of nature are the same forces that create art. For this reason she wants to show that not only science is knowledge but also art. So she borrows elements of plant nature that follow clear mathematical proportions like Fibonacci sequence, golden section and golden spiral used by the artists before the scientists. For her the union between art and science is in the fractal of the roman cabbage. Her pseudonym also derives from this. In italian the people used to say something unprofessional like “made with cabbage”, so her name became also ironic, because art it is serious thing but also must be close to people. Art doesn’t grow under cabbages, art is born of the free creative volition of man for this reason teaches the freedom. This is how Artista del Cavolo (Cabbage Artist) was born. She combines the human figure with the vegetable nature just as she combines materials: terracotta, brass, wood, bronze.
