Anna Tozzi, aka Atò, born in Rome, on 10-6-1965.
Graduated in Graphic Design and Advertising at Istituto Europeo di Design (European Institute of Design).
Two-year working experience for a design studio followed by a series of collaborations for the conception and design of logos and brand identities.
Following her passion for pictorial art, she has been working as a painter for years exploring and testing a painting technique that revolves around the expression of emotions through the color and the matter.
Mirroring the ever-changing spirit of the artist, Atò paintings begin showing their inner expressive content during their actual making: the mix of acrylic and PVA glue is poured on top of the canvas and spread with the brush or the spatula thus creating lines and boundaries.
The initial paint brushes and color tones are nor the real ones, and the painting takes on its ultimate shape and colors only when it dries forming a more distinct “sign”, as if to convey the imprint of the artist’s emotional state.
