Pop Art is an art movement born in the United Kingdom and the United States in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
This movement is an expression of society and of the collective imagination, and it is an art aimed at the mass and not at the single collective.
It is so called because it derives from the English term "popular art", always ready to look at and assimilate stimuli coming from external society.
Translated " mixed-media art " is mixed material art (or in Italy called "miscellanea").
It is a very modern and popular form of art that originates from the fundamental visual arts which are: painting, drawing and sculpture. Mixed media is a work of art in which more than one medium or material has been employed.
Assemblies and collages are two common examples of art using different media. They will make use of different materials including: fabric, paper, wood, and found objects.
Falli begins to paint since she was a child, under the guidance of her maternal
grandfather and ofthe arts she has done
her professional activity. She
has studied Decorative Painting at the Art Institute, Advertising and Publishing Graphics at the
European Institute of Design in Rome and Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts.
artworks are exhibited in several museums of Contemporary Art. She has received
prizes and awards in Italy and abroad, she received the Lifetime Achievement
Award at the Chamber of Deputies in Rome. She
has exhibited her “Pollage” in the
great Galleries section of the main Italian Contemporary Art exhibitions, next

is historicized inside the Catalogue of Mondadori Modern Art and in De Agostini
Atlas of Art. She is a member of the Interdisciplinary Centre of Contemporary
artworks are inspired by the Pop Art painters with revisions, experimentations,
provocations. Her experimentation skill
has urged her to the creation of an innovative way of ‘artistic work’, where
painting and decoration are contaminated by the opportunities of the new digital
continuous research leads her to the production of “Pollage”, which are
arousing interest from critics and historians and they are spreading among
collectors. The chaotic, distorted and emphasized landscapes which we find in
her exemplary works are the expression of the mental and visual chaos provoked
by the earthquake which happened in her city in 2009.
these last months her production has been enriched by a new topic:
ignorance, everybody paints, everybody feels artist, everybody wants to express
oneselfthrough the pictorial art but
many do not know or study the history of art and here we find some references,
somemockeries towards the false artists
andfrom these ones the provocative idea
of herworks (inspired in their titles
and compositions by the great names of art history) was born. “Van
Coc”, “Chi è Pollok”, “Poll - Gauguin”, “Pollo della Francesca”, “Magr.it”,
Poll.klee are her last inspirations.
