Fiber Art painter, Luisa Longo, works mainly on silk organza and satin, fascinated as she is by the luminous effects that can be obtained on this medium when using special techniques.
Her work is conceptually decorative and is in constant evolution exploring the cosmos, the rhythms of nature and music.
Born in Bologna, she began painting 25 years ago in Paris, where she studied at the École du Louvre and devoted herself to studying fabrics from different cultures.
Her research continues today under the guidance of sculptor Camillo Bersani in search of inexhaustible sources of innovative techniques.
She has lived in her guest house – Fiber Art Studio Buonanotte Garibaldi in Rome since 2005, where are examples of her unique work, which are on sale.
Techniques used: water colours for sil mixed with special acrylic pigments. The paint is fixed by steam in a special container.
Luisa Longo has exhibited her works in numerous art galleries in Italy and abroad.
