Manuela Gallo was born in Cosenza.
The love and passion for painting are transmitted to her by her grandfather, a landscape painter.
Her artistic career was born in a private art studio where over the years she acquired the techniques of classical art and then perfected herself in the atelier of the famous Neapolitan painter Gianni Strino.
Her art is figurative, she uses saturated colors to give character to the figures constantly trying to update them. Author of book covers and theatrical sets, her works are exhibited in many European galleries. Her artworks are scanned in various collections. The last, which the painter defines as more mature, is “Waiting Room”.
Waiting intrigues her, it is in this suspended space that we rethink the future and the images take shape modelling on how we are, how we have been, how we would like to be. Her figures are mostly women, strong, independent, contemporary. The artist tries to translate into canvas that emotionality that transpires from each of them using vivid colors to give more intensity and brightness to the characters.
