Gisella Biondani (@gisellabiondani) is my pick for today’s talent!
If you don’t know what A Year on Talents is here you can find the description of the project: A Year on Talents Project
Gisella is a watercolor artist and calligrapher based in Milan, Italy. She is inspired by nature and her purpose is to create stories through art. To do that she combines the fluidity of watercolors, their ability to be unpredictable in a sense if you want with the expressive and controlled lines of calligraphy.
The most beautiful thing is that she is always able to keep the whole artwork so balanced, delicate and light. It’s so hard to describe that it makes me think her art really reaches the highest level, it sorta is like a personal way of looking at her creation which I hope she can take like a very big compliment. The fact that I think I can see and feel my own version of her piece to me is fantastic and a very good feeling.
The first image is just wow! Let’s skip the part in which I say the photo itself and the composition are gorgeous, have you seen this calendar? The watercolor flowers paired with an ancient Japanese poetry each (Haiku) create such wonderful pages. If you want to have a peek at all the months there’s a link down below to her website in which you’ll find everything you’re looking for.
The second image is a piece I like so much, the title is “shadows”. What role does calligraphy have here for you? What’s the meaning of the shades of blue? Not what do they represent to you but what do they mean? Do you feel balance or is something capturing your attention first? I love to lose myself in my mind while I try to get out of this net in which, after all, I want to stay. Wonderful.
