About Artist&Art

Born to immigrant parents, Chiara has spent half her life in China and the other half in Italy, soaking up the rich cultures of both, while dealing with the contrasting values each brings, viewed through different perspectives.

Considered herself to be deeply influenced by the surroundings, Chiara likes to design the environment for her characters to reside in, with a hint of Pop culture and Italian Futurism thrown in.

Currently, Chiara’s work is all about exploring digitalization, wellness vibes, and the complexities of human connections.
