First artwork sold this year! "The embrace", a 50x50cm limited edition print of 15, featuring a woman's back embraced by red/pinkish long hair.

This image is part of the series "Creatively" and is one of the 5 images I made with long hair being the main focus.
I had long hair at that time (not that long of course) and for the artwork purpose I dyed it red.

Hair is a powerful symbol of individual and group identity, extremely personal and public at the same time.

When I was creating these "hair inspired" images I investigated a lot about how hair was perceived by different cultures.
In most cultures hair represents beauty, strength, freedom, wealth and health and is often associated with youth and sexuality.

According to other cultures long hair is needed to cover women's body when they're buried as they lack clothes. This is where the idea of "The embrace" came from.

Client from Thailand

Magic flowers, fine art photography by Alessandra Favetto

I'm so excited to have this artwork reaching Thailand because it's the first time I have a collector from this country.

Since I started my career as a fine art photographer and visual artist I've sold my images all over the world. Cannot explain how grateful I feel for having small pieces of me in all these countries.
Thank you!

This artwork is named "Magic flowers". It's a small edition of 10, 25x25 cm.
There's also a larger edition of 10, 50x50 cm, available through Saatchi Art.

Gifting art and a collector from the Netherlands


December is alwyas a busy month for art sale with Christmas aproaching.
Love the idea of gifting art because it adds value to a place. Weather it's for family, friends or business, art is always a thoughtful gift.
While artwork is a material gift it can also be incredibly experiential and emotive, the perfect gift from a minimalist point of view.

"Pray", 50x50 cm self-portrait fine art photography print, is flying to a collector from the Netherlands.

Flying to the US

 

I'm always very excited, happy and grateful to prepare an artwork for a collector. 

Each piece of art I make is like my baby to me because I invest so much love, effort and time to create it that it ends up being a part of my soul. So when I'm preparing the package for shipment I feel like a mother who is packing the luggage for her child's summer camp :-) 
I don't have children but I guess that's pretty the same emotion. 

So here is "Smoked", number one of a limited edition of 20 from the series "Fabula and Drama de la soledad", ready to leave. Have a safe trip to the US! 

Most of the images of this series have a main title (in english) and a subtitle (in spanish). The subtitle is an important part of the image, it's a thought, a short verse, that completes the whole sense of the artwork.

"Smoked - Sucumbo indefensa e impasible a tu llegada silenciosa y arrasadora."

Client from United States


This print, "Dark moon", arrived to its new owner in the United States. It's number one of a limited edition of 20 from the series "Fabula and Drama de la soledad" where I explore the the facets of solitude and loneliness in a self portrait project.

Most of the images of the series have a title (in english) and a subtitle (in spanish). The subtitle is an important part of the image, it's a thought, a short verse, that completes the whole sense of the artwork.
Dark moon
La sombra de la luz me hunde en la oscuridad.
  Enjoy my artwork!

It happened again!



It happened again! And the subtitle would be "How to change something bad in an opportunity".
So here's the story: I have a limited internet connection, this means that when I've used all the GB available in my monthly package I'm cut off of the Internet (unless I want to navigate at 256k, sort of Flinstone's age!). Upgrading to a higher package is non-viable as I'm not willing to pay 100 or more euro to be connected so when there are no GBs left I only have two options, either get frustrated or change the bad situation in an opportunity. I chose the second one :-))

Having no internet connection turns out to be a blessing! I'm much more productive, I take more photos, I have better ideas, I write more, I produce more art and feel better :-))
Being forced to stay away from the net has helped me start out with analog collage (I'll write a post about it soon), increased my creativity and led me to write more posts on my blog.

Believe or not, an internet connection can trap you against your will and suck a lot of your time without you even noticing.
Here's an example:
You check your email boxes every 10-15 minutes because you never know if something important may come in and you don't want to miss answering back as soon as possible, you read the morning news and end up watching a video about whale and dolphin salvation and decide to make a donation to the WWF, you open facebook to wish your friend a happy birthday and end up writing down that avocado recipe that looks great, you get an email from one of your 30-50 subscriptions and decide to take just two minutes to check out that funny article about a lost dog that walked 100 miles to reach his home, you scroll the Instagram just to have a quick look on how many followers liked your latest photo and while you're there you record a video for the story stream, you open that youtube video your sister suggested to watch and it's so addictive that you go check the author's site, read a couple of articles and subscribe to his newsletter, you check the weather forecast to plan your weekend but an ad on the right hand side catches your attention with a super special discount on that bikini you were thinking to buy so you click on the ad but in the meantime you get an email from amazon reminding you of that book you added to your wish list and that you totally forgot about so you open the link to read once more customers reviews........and the list can go on and on and on.

Did you recognize yourself in any of these situations? I did, that's why I'm not going to wait for my total data usage consumption, I'm not going to wait until it happens again. I decided to take 1 day off a week from the internet to recharge my creativity and do useful stuff. Like cooking that avocado recipe :-))))
