Art is salvation, "feeling", burning passion, inspiration, communication, self-esteem, breath, light in the darkness and care for the soul. Life connection between what you create and your person, says the artist.
Tiziana Stocco, lei Born in Udine in 1981, Friulian, she has always lived in the territory lapped by the river Stella, from which she lets herself be inspired.
Solar personality, melancholy, instinctive, sensitive, always with a smile.
Since she was a child, a pencil in her hands, with natural and spontaneous gestures, she made colorful fantasy worlds emerge from the sheets of paper. She also invented small bijoux and jewels with poor metals, semi-precious stones, natural pearls.
The contact with his paternal aunt, a painter by passion and Paolino Pelizzari, a realist painter, neighbor, influences the artist's shaping in the childhood / adolescent period.
Her education increases, attending the "G. Sello art school" in Udine, currently "G. Sello artistic high school", learning to use, with various tools, many artistic techniques: drawing, painting, sculpture, processing of poor and precious metals.
She deepened her studies by getting to know world-famous artists closely, she was fascinated by Michelangelo Merisi - Caravaggio, Giotto, Vincent Van Ghog and by the Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí.
Thanks to the school, she participated in the creation of female statues in plaster, in permanent paintings intended to enrich the institute itself or in the wards of the civil hospital in Palmanova (Udine).
She graduated, she focuses on oil painting, continuing as a self-taught, deepening the search for stroke, material, colors, and expressiveness.
The year 2017 "marks" her person and her art.
She discovers that she is suffering from an autoimmune disease (Endometriosis), in severe form, which had painfully afflicted her for 23 years, forced to undergo surgery the following year, she gets a great awareness of herself and a rapid maturation.
She gave strong inspiration for all the works that will be created from that fact onwards, trying to transform her feeling into images, with an eye aimed at portraying beauty, in an attempt to leave a message, an emotion, in the eyes of who looks.
Naming evil serves to stand up to it, accept it and fight it.
This is the origin of the Light Inside painting, oil on canvas, 30x40. Self-portrait of Tiziana and one of the most significant works.
Painted a dreamer woman, wearing a torn red dress (bleeding menstrual cycle), from whose belly rays of light (adenomyosis) come out that defeat evil, represented by a black devil who shows himself on a cloud at the bottom right. The purpose of the work is to convey a strong message of what I feel and how I live it, to ensure that this disease is socially recognized, and a sign of closeness to millions of suffering women, (some famous such as: Laura Torrisi, Rossella Brescia , Merilin Monroe, Woopi Golberg, Hillary Clinton, Queen Victoria, etc ...).
To create a work, she closes her eyes and listens to herself, observes nature, is inspired by real facts, direct and indirect life experiences. Sometimes her subjects are mainly realistic, or realistic-imaginary, the mixed stroke between fluid and precise, defined and nuanced, giving a pleasant result.

An icon of inspiration is the king of the pop art current Andy Warhol who said: «Don't think about making art, just do it. Let others decide if it's good or bad, if they like it or if it sucks. Meanwhile, while the others are there to decide, you make even more art ».
