ARTIST BIO

Antonella Manganelli Antonella Manganelli moved to the U.S. in 1999 from Italy, where she was born and raised in a family of art collectors who exposed her to the beauty of art from an early age.
Growing up in such a nurturing artistic environment, Antonella opened herself to the arts, embracing and experiencing it through different lenses -- as a student, collector, curator, art dealer, and artist.
Antonella lives in Reston, Virginia, where she paints and works from her home.
She is a surrealist painter; through her art she depicts a surreal vision of the world and its history. Her interest is to communicate her understanding and evolution as a human being in this life, sharing the vision through artwork and collaborating with other artists and people who come across her journey.
Antonella draws her inspiration from her life that she lives fully, experiencing everything that is offered with gratitude and curiosity. She believes in the power of Nature as an great ancient healer; looking for symbols and messages to decode the indecipherable language that Nature whispers to us. Through meditation and connection, she finds her balance painting her journey through life. Her art reflects the surreal vision of her world that she explores traveling among Europe, North and Central America, Canada, and Asia.
Antonella is also an active board member of the League of Reston Artists. She has exhibited her art throughout Italy in Naples, Rome, and Milan, and in the U.S. in Northern VA, Maryland, and North Carolina.

ARTIST STATEMENT

I’m free in my art when I paint my heart is connected with the universe. I listen and interpret stories suggested from my everyday experiences. I’m inspired by objects found during my walks and travels: shells, wooden sticks, stones… they are the alchemical magic formula to transform my memories into a surreal journey.
I’m painting stories emerging from my spiritual meditative space, I’m listening to what life tells me, and I’m painting freely.
My feelings change from painting to painting, and I create artwork different from each other, experimenting with different materials, techniques, and styles… my paintings change, as my life does too.
