About the artist

Loredana Messina, was born in Palermo, Sicily. She was a pupil at the Maria Adelaide public school progressing to study Law at the University of Palermo. She currently lives in London from where she teaches Italian. Her passion for art has become her great interest in life.

She is a self taught artist whose art started in the expressionist painting genre progressing into textile printing. Her art is realized on different media and printed on various fabrics (cotton, silk, etc.), creating highly appreciated designs.

Landscapes, seascapes and street scenes are Loredana’s favoured subjects which she portrays with great spontaneity to immediately evoke magical vibrations and fresh atmospheres. Her works are formally casual, with delicate colours that play and live freely in their own rhythm, providing spacious musical horizons, full of charm and intimate emotions.

The artist has a clean and modular style, with a fluid and secure gestured capacity to convey an extraordinary, spontaneous and instinctive serenity. Recently, her creativity has lead her into the world of abstractionism where her strong and contrasting colour bands give free reign to her imagination.

While over the years Loredana has concentrated on commission work, lately she has resolved to make herself more visible in the art world. In 2013 Loredana was invited to participate, and then became a commission selected finalist, in the International Art Competition organized by the Taiwan International Contemporary Arts Association. Her two commission selected works can be viewed by following this link:

Manifestly, the selected works, known as “Sutera: Rabato Antico” and “Villaggio Antico” are also published on this site. The originals of the two works were on show from 3rd to 6th May 2013 at the Taipei A.R.T Revolution show held at the Taipei World Trade Centre.

Further international presence has been bestowed upon the artist in exhibitions and on contemporary art sites in North America, Germany and Australia that have both curated and featured a number of her works giving her pride of place on the front page.

The artist remarks that while painting has provided her manifold satisfaction over the years, she realizes that it is time to embark on new ventures. Firstly in making her work more widely visible and secondly by harnessing digital technology to compliment the classical oil on canvas base and so produce re-mastered mixed media and abstract paintings giving rise to fresh, young and contemporary work.

Lately the artist has become established in the printed textile sector with her works being reproduced on silk, cotton, etc to produce creative dresses, scarves and other items of clothing. Cited by the specialized press, her works appear in various public and private collections. Her works have always attracted great attention and sincere admiration for both chromatic finesse and compositional gesture.

Some of her works are in private collections in America, Europe and the Far East.
