Arianna Matta painting

Arianna Matta was born in Rome in 1979. She holds a degree from the city’s DAMS University for the performing and visual arts and also studied at the Rome University of Fine Arts (RUFA).

Matta’s work centres on her research into space and light. Her paintings offer glimpses of natural elements in otherwise exclusively architectural spaces which are void of human presence. She paints with a limited palette and breaks the surface up into cube-like segments, allowing her paint to drip and smudge in places. The overall effect is compelling and pulls the viewer into the canvas.

Matta has held several solo exhibitions in Rome where her work is becoming increasingly well known. She has also been the recipient of finalist awards in Los Angeles and Venice.
