New work by Vittoria Grant
I have focused on re-creating a narrative of African life as I experienced it as a child and later on as an adult revisiting the places of my early years. I have portrayed the east African coast through a series of black and white sketches that make the African people come to life like in a film an intimate and lively movie of my mind.

From black and white there is a slow progression into coloured sketches and finally into painting. This is just the beginning of a project on Africa that feels like a truly inexhaustable reuptake and reflection of my own memories. A past that feels mainly like a dream is reborn into a new form through my artwork.
