alessandra desole

I was born on the small island of Sardegna, but have lived in many places.

I draw my inspiration from the profound beauty of the people and diverse cultures I encounter on my travels through Africa, Europe and the Far East.I create a powerful synergy of realism and an intense atmosphere rich in expressive moods. The works are characterised by the simplicity of striking visual images.

The paintings are oil on canvas done on a large format using clear bold colours.
My love for portraits and figurative work is evident when looking thru the galleries.
The charcoal drawings are large-scale, strong and energetic pieces that are both modern and classic.They are done on strong thick brown paper that I use as my middle tone.

My work is for sale and I accept commissions.
