About Cristina Bernazzani

I'm an italian artist, born on april 1963 in Milan, I've studied graphic art in Monza.
After 28 years as editorial illustrator in 2010 I started painting and realizing humor drawings.
These years I have partecipate in a numerous group exhibitions around the world, receiving several awards.
My reference are surrealist, but the greatest artist in my hearth is Brad Holland.
Acrylic is the material I prefer for the cromatic intensity.
My immagines follow a streamline: listen the inner voice, why we exist, love, hate? Why we become victims or rather victimizer? Is the voice itself to create the images, all I do is shape them on a sheet.
I think laughing is a way of being not only a way of drawing, if I move away emotinally from an event I may find the funny side, i can see me as a little crazy ant rotating inside my convictions, How many time we feel like kings but in fact we seems like jesters?
Only condition for laughing at others is to be willing to laugh at ourselves, if not it would be a little cocky.

I'm still living and painting with my two teenager sons near Monza
