About the Artwork

Color Against Concrete is a journey into a historical moment in which physical and mental boundaries are well delineated and its aim is to delete them through a chromatic decontextualization of urban spaces and everything that composes them. Rome is the reference playground, but there are other Italian cities. Color pushes the gray/concrete urban context to an unexpected visual & sensorial level.

About the artist

Cristiana Bezerra de Menezes Signorelli is a fine art photography artist who specializes in surrealism. She comes from a mixed South American-European background, with half Italian and half Brazilian roots, and was born in Quito, Ecuador in 1986. As an internationally recognized artist, she is constantly traveling around the world and currently resides in Rome, Italy.

Her journey began with a degree in photography, followed by a career in advertising, film, and fashion photography. She has had numerous magazine publications and has taught photography while also managing photography-related projects. Her experience has led her to fully dedicate herself to fine art photography, where she explores new surrealistic perspectives.

Influenced by artists such as Maya Deren, Marc Chagall, Michal Pudelka, Claude Chaun, and André Breton, she uses the archetypes of beauty and visual narrative insolence to investigate a complex milieu parallel to the surrounding reality.

Proof of Provenance

A Proof of Provenance is an official document that establishes the genuine nature of an artwork. Issued by a credible authority, this may be signed directly by the creator, the gallery representing the creator, or the specialist who collaborated with the artist. In cases of traded artworks, authenticated bodies or designated foundations may issue such certifications.

These documents are comprehensive, usually detailing the artist’s name, specifics of the artwork (including title, creation date, materials used, size), and ideally, an image of the art piece itself.
