Laura Calafiore was born in Solarino, Sicily in 1974.
She graduated from the city’s Institute of Arts , with a diploma in fresco and gold leafing in the early nineties.
Laura then moved to Venice to study at the Academia of Fine Arts, graduating with a BA in Theatrical Set and Costume Design.
Whilst studying, Laura gained regular solo exhibition experience alongside her work in scenic design. Throughout this time she explored and developed her style using acrylics, watercolour and pencil.
In 1999 Laura moved to London with a view to widening her artistic & linguistic horizons. While in London, Laura has worked with quite a few well known faces through her work in West End Theatres. These people have given her lots of encouragement and support with her art work.
In the Spring of 2005, Laura exhibited for the first time in London, adopting a deliberately abstract style, influenced by Vincent Van Gogh for the choice of colour and application of dynamic brush work.
Laura’s background continues to feed her work with an exuberance, vitality and honesty. Her paintings are direct, evocative and uplifting.
