If you want to describe angela verdi’s style of painting it varies from naturalistic realism to modern abstraction – sometimes even combining both. But all works relate to her love for fashion! This love either appears in the shapes, silhouettes or in the texture of the paintings.
She likes to experiment with different techniques: oil, acrylic (glossy and matt) and egg tempera.
Since 2014 she has started to add metallic foil, glass crystals/pearls or rust to her paintings to give them a more lively and 3 dimensional touch, which make her work so unique. These materials show their richness of effects best when viewed life, because depending on the source of light and angle of view will change the character and colour of them.
With her latest creations she is uniting her past in fashion business with her passion for painting.
