Fiber Art painter, Luisa Longo, works mainly on silk organza and satin, as she is fascinated by the luminous effects that can be obtained on this material when using special techniques.
Her work is conceptually decorative and is in constant evolution: exploring the cosmos and the rhythms of nature and music.
Born in Bologna, she began painting 30 years ago in Paris, where she studied at the École du Louvre and devoted herself to studying fabrics from different cultures.
Her research continues today under the guidance of sculptor Camillo Bersani in search of inexhaustible sources of innovative techniques.
She has lived in her Fiber Art Studio - Buonanotte Garibaldi guesthouse since 2005, where one can find examples
of her unique work for sale.
Techniques used: water colours for silk mixed with special acrylic pigments. The paint is fixed by steam in a special container.
Luisa Longo has exhibited her works in numerous art galleries in Italy and abroad.
