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!
