Roberta Savelli was born in 1969 in Giussano (MI), has a diploma in set design from Accademia di Brera, and lives and works in Milan. 

A renowned artist, she uses painting and drawing to create her contemporary portraits and pictorial installations.

Roberta uses acrylic on transparent gauze to stage faces and figures of children and adolescents, alone or in groups, surrounded by idyllic landscapes.

Her creative process begins with photographs taken in the studio, capturing the character of the individual portrayed at a particular moment in time, then finished with oil paint on overlapping layers of deep, impalpable gauze. Roberta’s portraits capture what makes her subjects unique, and she also uses painting in site-specific installations to establish a powerful relationship with space.

Her technique involving use of diluted oil paint on very thin layers of gauze helps to underline the great psychological introspection present in her portraits, underlining the purity and fragility of the world of adolescence.

She has exhibited her work in numerous solo exhibitions and international group shows in recent years.
