About

I am Carolina Festa, 25 years old. I'm currently a full-time Jr Art Director based in Milan, but my passions are painting, researching and constantly creating new stuff in various creative fields, in order to express my personal vision of life. I'm trying hard to work out to change my current lifestyle and start to be not only interested in my personal artistic production, but 100% committed to it.

A practice I want to explore further and that I'm already working on is the possibility of the reuse of waste materials in my artworks. In fact, I usually use construction materials and non-paintings elements together with common painting colours, with a particular attention now to plastic waste materials, that not only adds huge volumes to the materic pieces but also makes me feel that I'm helping in a little way the environment with my artistic practice

I've been recently selected for a 1 month non-profit Artist Residency happening in June 2019 in Pada Studios, Barreiro. The residency aim for me is to produce a serie of materic artworks that involves an interaction with the environment of Barreiro's abandoned industrial lands, with the reuse of lost and found materials.

I am very happy  to have the chance to do this project in PADA and, during my residency period in the studios, I also want to produce a photographic book of my paintings placed  in Lisboa and Barreiro lands, in order to witness the "artworks-environment" visual interaction I want to achieve. 

The residency costs for one month is 950€, for the full use of studios, materials supplies and accomodation in Barreiro. So this amount will not cover the travel expenses or the whole production of the book, that I will manage to pay on my own.

I really hope to get the chance to spread my production further and take a lot of steps in the future on this marvellous path.
