“I am a creator of material dreams. Nature is my main inspiring muse. I use polymer clay, I love it.”
"The beautiful material is the same for everyone. Creating beauty with a modest material is instead of a few. The beautiful material, then, does not exist. The right material exists. " - Giò Pont
Italian figurative artist, Elisabetta Visentini lives in Milan and holds a Bachelor's Degree and a Specialiazed Degree in Product Design from Politecnico of Milano.
"I consider myself a creative hybrid, emerged from the needs of this particular period of our history, a forge of self-production and self-invention initiatives. In fact, I was born as a Product Designer, with a Master's Degree in Product Design at the Polytechnic of Milan, and then discovered an incredible passion for everything that is manual, lasting as a furnishing item or a jewel, but also ephemeral as an advertising scene.
I came into contact with the most diverse product categories, from dog furniture to lighting, from giant mock-ups to microscopic miniatures, from classic furniture to clothing label graphics.
I taught graphics ... and now I teach material modeling with different fine art products ... material innovation and experimentation are a constant part of my artistic life. In short, I could define myself as an artist, characters' designer, modeler of material dreams, designer outside the box ... genetically creative. I love making different types of projects, very often fantasy, going from sweet creatures like fairies or mermaids to terrible orcs. Animals, pieces of art or nice characters. I like to change subject and type, I like challenges.
I'm looking for a realistic style, creating unique pieces, cured in the smallest detail. Each piece is unique, in an OOAK, One of a Kind and born from my great passion. I'm married to Davide and I have two wonderful babies, Leonardo 5 years and Alessandro 3 years. They are a great, amazing and incredible inspiration for my work."
