Federica Frati, Healers, 70 x 50 cm, monotype and collage on paper, 2019
Federica Frati was born in Brescia in 1977 where she lives and works. She
graduated from art school Foppa where she learned the main artistic techniques.
After two years of attendance at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, she graduated
in art at the University of Milan in modern literature. Since 2009 Federica creates
engraving prints at the Luciano Pea laboratory.
In parallel to the works of engraving, the artist produced,
from 2010 paintings following models and techniques of medieval painting: the
synthesis and the solemnity of some frescoes, the non-descriptive urgency, the
glimmers of gold, and “verdaccio” backgrounds, mark the pictorial production of
Federica. The sign becomes prevalent and predominant in her paintings as in her
prints, so often the paintings and engraving prints were exhibited together.
