LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Serena Maisto is a Swiss artist born in 1982.
Her career has begun as a consequence of a very strong attraction towards Jackson Pollock’s work.
In accordance with Pollock’s abstract expressionism, her work is a color flow almost inundating the canvas, like a reflection of her personal emotions and feelings.
Serena initially expressed herself with a more classical acrylic on canvas technique, later she experimented alternative techniques like painting on Plexiglas. This media allows her to create works for specific sites to be seen through their transparency.
In 2017 she developed a deep interest in photography, she started playing with this media and its different applications and in 2019 Serena start to work with her new "lines" named De-Composition Project.
Serena work with Cortesi Gallery, Imago Art Gallery and Artrust SA.
Solo show in Lugano (Switzerland) and London.
Born in 1982, lives and works in Lugano.
