Mariarosaria Stigliano

Mariarosaria Stigliano

After graduating in law at La Sapienza University in Rome, she decides to focus on art studies and gets a second degree in painting at the School of Fine Arts and the qualification for teaching painting disciplines.

The Artist, very interested in the fleeting nature of human figures in urban contexts, industrial wreckage and room interiors, has developed a personal pictorial technique based on scratching her paintings’ surface with a mix of lead, oil and industrial enamels.
Her images, immersed in vibrant, restless atmospheres, capture the spectator’s gaze and stay suspended in alienating framings between dream and wakefulness.

They have hosted her works, in prestigious collective events: Art Ramat Gan Museum of Tel Aviv in Israel, San Salvatore in Lauro Museum in Rome, Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation in Venice, Venanzo Crocetti Museum in Rome and the MLAC (Museo Laboratorio di Arte Contemporanea) of La Sapienza University in Rome.

There are numerous solo displays in important exhibition spaces, including the Italian Cultural Institute of Bogota in Colombia, the Italian Cultural Institute of Wolfsburg in Germany, the Aragonese Castle of Taranto and the Neuhaus Castle of Wolfsburg.

Mariarosaria Stigliano was among the top 10 Italian artists invited to China (Hangzhou) for the project “Following the path of Marco Polo” and participated in several painting symposia in Germany where she frequently returns.
