Chiara Mecozzi was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. From an early age she was exposed to an artist life through her mother, Miriam Costanza, a prominent painter, and her father, a fashion photographer. Growing up in an artist studio, Chiara was able to develop skills and a curiosity for the arts that led her to continue her education in the arts.
After graduating with a Bachelor’s in Art History and a minor in both painting and drawing, she felt the need to explore different tools and eventually began her career as an artist and photographer.
Her mixed media work consists of fragmentary juxtaposed photographs painted on large format canvases.
“Each mixed media piece is a collage of objects and people that at one point have become part of my life. My work is a reflection of an emotion felt and a capture in a particular moment.”
Her photography consists of capturing everyday objects we encounter and provoking a narrative by adding a juxtaposition through the use of a figurative form. Each inanimate subject she photographs can be seen as lifeless—but how many stories exist or instances have happened within that subject that give it life?
As a live painter, one of Chiara’s greatest fortes is being able to connect with people. Through that connection and exchange of energy, her live art becomes a captivating experience. She uses different techniques and unique mediums throughout her work, not only to create an engagement with the audience, but to create a correlation between the painting and the client or event.
Her goal as a live artist is to create a new form of engagement within a crowd, stimulating their creative senses in such a way that the audience becomes an additional element in the final art piece.
Chiara lives and works in New York City.
"In a world with so many distractions, I strive to connect with my audience to engage their senses when least.” -Chiara Mecozzi
