Silvana Martinescu Exlibris


Silvana Martignoni was born in Busto Arsizio, she attended the Art High School and the “Brera” Academy of Fine Arts in Milan with her final thesis on the “visionary” poet and engraver William Blake. Later she specialized in engraving techniques at Urbino .

Since the early years of her artistic activity she focused her interest on the purest engraving techniques (drypoint, mezzotint, etching, etc..). She has a passion for mezzotint (graining the plate with rocker only), an ancient technique that lends itself to her design, subtle, strong and decisive , enriched in tonal values close to painting.

In general she has many solo exhibitions and numerous participations in all the major graphic international events, obtaining prizes and honorable mentions. In 1983 she was awarded first prize in the XXII edition of the Joan Mirò International Drawing Award from the Fundació Joan Mirò in Barcelona.
