She briefly lived and studied art in beautiful Florence, now she lives and paints in Milan, Lombardy, Italy. By the end of 2019 she started to exhibit her art in group shows around the world.

MEET THE ARTIST
- Start off and tell us your name! Who are you?
My name is Federica but for my art I go by Quiete. It means “calmness”, “stillness” in Italian. It has a profound meaning to me.
- What kind of art do you create and what medium do you work in?
I find inspiration in pop-surrealism and illustration. I like to think of my art as a “place” of calmness, where time is non-existent and everything is still.
There you can find my children made of paint, in the twilight sleep made of unconscious feelings.
I work mainly in oil and acrylic, sometimes mixed techniques. I also love watercolors and now I’m experimenting with gold leaf.
I don’t know what an artist is, really, but I always strive to make something meaningful.
- Le Fae is about all things magical fairy! Tell us about why you applied to the show and what inspired the work you made for the curated collection?
I applied to the show because I’m attracted to otherworldly and magical creatures, and I think all of us have a little magic inside.
My work for Le Fae was inspired by moths, they are such beautiful beings of the night and their longing for the light is bittersweet and poetic at the same time.
- Where did you hear about Bubble Pop Gallery and what made you want to be in the show?
I’ve heard it from a lovely collector and I immediately was inspired by the theme.
- Have you ever done a gallery show before? If yes, how many?
I started to exhibit my work in shows at the end of 2019.
As of now, including Le Fae Art Show, I’ve participated in five shows and I hope to participate in many more!
- What is your favorite thing about being a creative?
What I love the most is the possibility to enter a different state of mind.
- What inspires you?
I’m inspired by alchemy and dreams.
- How does art make the world a better place?
When you watch a painting, a little piece of beauty enters your heart and it never leaves. And then, people carry this beauty inside of them not consciously knowing it’s there but it is. It enriches everything, even the gloomiest day.
- Where are you located?
Right now I’m located in Milan, Italy, but my soul belongs to the beautiful city of Florence where I lived for five years.
- What projects are you working on that you can tell us about?
I’m working on three different group shows at the moment and I’m so excited!
- Where can people find you?
I have a website: https://quieteart.com and an Instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/__quiete__/
- Anything else you would like to share?
I know things have been rough lately, for everyone, so I just want to say thank you. Thanks for letting me share my work with all of you. I hope it brightens your day just a little bit. Try to find the joy in the adventures in front of you, even if they are still a little bit down the road. And don’t forget to say hello to the people around you, it’s nice to feel seen. I see you. Hello friends!
