Viviana is an Italian-Canadian painter, illustrator and creative producer based in Berlin, Germany.
She paints and draws her internal tension between pathos and logos, northern lights and southern sunsets, the Canadian wilderness and the Mediterranean shrubland.
Her blurred contours and undefined strokes aim at evoking oneiric imagery where dream and reality merge.
In 2015, she helped curate the gallery installation for Lorenzo Mattotti’s illustrations of Neil Gaiman’s version of “Hansel and Gretel” novel at the Italian Cultural Institute in Toronto. In the same year, her children’s story “Virginia and the Forgotten Teacup” was published and awarded in the multilingual book “The Best of All Worlds” with the support of At One Press and the Canadian Commission for UNESCO. Her work has been recently featured in several art events, blogs and magazines, following some local exhibitions in Frankfurt and Berlin.
In 2022, she collaborated with the MetFilm School Berlin as an art consultant and featured artist in the graduation film "Akin".
Viviana is a fervent human rights and environmental activist and creative producer who has helped shape the reputation of companies in the Global South through documentary-style video productions.
A certified Brand and Communication professional, with a BA and MA in Foreign Languages and Literature from the University of Bologna, she continued to study Art and Illustration at the Freie Kunstakademie Frankfurt and the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver.
