Ylenia Roma

Layers, texture, and an intense blend of reality and fantasy characterise today’s mosaic artist Ravenna-based Ylenia Roma.

Using found materials as diverse as seashells and pine cone scales, and well as the more traditional bricks, stone, and tile Roma’s brings images of wildlife vibrantly to life. Feathers, fur, and whiskers are laid with intricate detail whilst varied relief adds dimension.

Her portraits of people are crafted with a similar gift for fine features as colour, shapes, and dramatic embellishments augment each character, giving the artworks an enhanced sense of ethereal beauty, creativity, and mystique.
