Letizia Zombory. A Dutch visual artist who is based in Italy. An award-winning member of the Academia. Letizia’s artistic journey has been given its due exposure and recognition globally, in Asia, Europe and USA. Her life trajectory has been truly celebrated in the international arena. Indeed Letizia has been felicitated and has received applause for her substantial body of work, including coverage in diverse catalogues, journals, magazines and publications in Italy and worldwide.
Furthermore, she has participated in multiple art fairs and group exhibitions which were hosted by galleries and museums in Florence, Genoa, Rome, Vatican, Monte Carlo, Innsbruck, Vienna, London, Stockholm, Miami et al. Letizia’s foremost and primary motivation pertaining to her artistic journey is to explore, delve and probe deeply into the soul of her subjects. Her paintings are a subsequent depiction, illumination and manifestation of the innermost recesses and secrets of the human soul.
According to Letizia: “In my paintings, I am always searching for the inner soul of a theme. A soul, a face, a hidden truth. The image can be either reality or surreal. The image has to belong to the theme and the hidden must be expressed, by any means necessary. I am always looking for the feelings of people, landscapes, and inanimate objects.”
In this connection, the artist’s wide-ranging themes encompass the history of ancient Rome and Venice as well as the tales of eminent historical beings and figures with fascinating personalities and journeys such as Casanova, Caesar, Cleopatra, Nero, and many more.
Letizia reiterates “In my Venice series, I want to show a less well-known image of this wonderful city, an image that has not been painted during the centuries. I am a little ironic and playful, but so is this city too, always different, and incomprehensible. Everything revolves around the gondolas that have grown into half-human beings. I also wanted to show my love and humility for this wonderful city.”
“My Rome series tells the story about the Majestic Capital of the old, the Lost World with her glamorous palaces, great emperors and the common people. This tale is about the Eternal City that is nowadays just as colourful, pulsating, majestic and eternal as it ever was.”
Noted Art Critic Giampaolo Trotta sums up her artistic oeuvre perfectly: “Her works show us that the invisible world can become visible thanks to the magic of colours that sing and dance in absolute freedom…The creatures that soar in her paintings bring the world of everyday happiness and sweetness of poetry, as well as a certain degree of velvety irony and are infused in the magical value of myth.”
