Maria's Parallel World

A few words about me..

 I was born in the wonderful Florence, in Italy. So many amazing memories. As a child I used to write stories about parallel dimensions and mysterious creatures.. Growing up I always felt that there was something missing in my life until one day in London in early 2002, I discovered the love for painting and found my purpose. I had the urge to paint on a piece of wood that I found near Victoria Station. I bought two acrlylic colours, black and white and two brushes. That night, while I was painting, I felt this incredible feeling of belonging and I never stopped since.
In 2003 I started to sell my paintings at Greenwich Market at the weekend.. I loved that long period of my life, full of fun and adventures. It ended in the early 2020.. 

Well, better things where about to come:)

In October 2022 with my best friend John Lynch, I have opened a funky gallery studio in Nunhead, here in South East London. So now you can meet me and see my work at Hidden House Gallery, open to the public every Sunday 11:5:30pm or by appointment. 

About my work..

I have a very unique style maybe because I'm self-taught artist or maybe it was meant to be like this. I have a big love for old buildings, the ones solid and full of character. We are all surronded by but most of us don't even notice them. Growing up in Florence it was so normal to see the Cupola del Duomo every day. Now I can truly appreciate its full glory. I love Victorian buildings, they are so beautiful and made to last. This passion is reflected in my cityscapes for sure!

I have created a parallel Universe in my imagination called "The Futuristic World". It's fun, bright, vibrant and full of hidden messages and symbols..
I believe that the world we have been raised in is full of lies and with my art I want to wake people up to a different way of thinking.

I love what I do, new ideas always flow through me and more collections are constantly created!
My paintings are held in private collections all around this world.. Oops! Dimension..

You can contact me for more information about prices or commissions or even to give me some feedback :)
