Roberta Volpe is an award-winning set designer. Born in Milan she trained in Set Design at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera and in Set and Costume Design at the Opera Academy of Verona.
She did her apprenticeship at Teatro La Scala in Milan where she mastered her skills as a sculptor and painter.
Her painting style expresses itself through textured explosions of colours and silhouettes that emerge from a blurred background that are expressed in energetic brushstrokes.
“Painting, like any other form of art, is a language and as such, must speak in itself. To use words to describe one of my paintings would be using another medium. I want the observer to find himself; recognize himself by observing one of my works, and for this dialogue to happen, you don’t need words. My research aims to represent what words cannot express. My works have their own history and a life of their own expressed in their titles.”
