ABOUT THE ARTIST
Barbara Lo Faro is a self-taught artist born in Rome, in 1967. Drawing and painting are her main artistic expressions. Her work is mainly influenced by the 20th-century figurative tradition, in particular by the Austrian Expressionism of Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. She tries to rework and blend these influences with her personal style, fused with postmodern techniques such as acrylic, ballpoint pen, charcoal, and watercolor. Her first love was the biro pen, doodles everywhere, on any kind of support, with her head in the clouds. Acrylic, charcoal, metallic pigments, and oil pastels compose most of the techniques she uses for her artworks on canvas, fabric, and cardboard. Watercolors and ink on paper, with their lightness and transparency, have recently taken the lead over everything… but the final touch is always with a biro pen.
