About Valentina Piscopo
Born in Italy, raised in Kenya and now based in London. Valentina has showed her work in New York and London. Her artworks reflect a powerful connection with the African continent which brings an exotic touch to her work. Using recycled materials and working in layers she is able to create tactile textures. Her work is inspired by the colours and patterns she encountered during her childhood and adolescence life, often portraying in abstract forms beautiful landscapes, wildlife and textiles patterns coming from Kenya and its rich culture.
