ABOUT the artist
Tina Figarelli is a realistic figurative artist from Chicago, IL. The concepts she loves to explore are realist portrait work inspired by Neoclassicism and Rococo themes. Her portraits are based on ethereal goddesses, including the beauty and power of women and femininity.
She aspires to create a fluid sense of narrative and story-telling. Her inspirations are drawn from tales of myths and legends that creates a flowing and fascinating story. Using that wonderment, she paints the story she wants her piece to convey.
Tina is currently studying for her Bachelor's in Fine Arts.
