Bianca Raffaela is a painter, illustrator and make-up artist based in Dublin, Ireland. She was born in London and studied and graduated with honours from the Fine Arts Academy in Rome.
Bianca draws inspiration from fashion photography and 80s music, bright images of surrealist Magritte and contrasted play of light and shadows in the works of Caravaggio. Her art often features women wearing abstract or futuristic outfits. Clean lines, intricate details, abstract settings and contrasted colours are the techniques that make Bianca’s works instantly recognizable. Mostly she uses acrylics, oil paints and ink.
After graduating in 2007 Bianca participated in various arts projects in Italy. In summer 2009 one such arts exchange project brought her to Ireland and the Fashion Illustration series was born. While actively creating artworks Bianca also started working as a professional makeup artist in 2012.
Through her art Bianca aims to bring out a sense of beauty in people and stimulate feelings of delight and pleasure.
