Chiara Mecozzi was born in 1985 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. From an early age she was exposed to what it means to live an artist’s life through her mother Miriam Costanza, a prominent painter, and her father Horacio Mecozzi, a fashion photographer. Growing up in an artist studio, Chiara developed skills and a curiosity for the arts that led her to continue an education in the arts.
After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in art history with a minor in both painting and drawing, she felt the need to explore different mediums and eventually began her career as an artist and photographer.
Mecozzi’s photography consists of capturing elements that identify and represent specific instances in her life. Through the juxtaposition of figurative form and context, she provokes a narrative that is left for the viewer to perceive through his/her own lens.
More Than This is a series of photographs demonstrating an expression of self-discovery, self-acceptance, growth, and rebirth. It is the ultimate expression of the artist’s own journey as she experiences separation, a new city, and the start of a new life. Through her photographic juxtapositions, she reveals personal narratives such as the language between men and women, self-acceptance and worth, and relationships, among others.
Mecozzi lives and works in New York City.
"In a world with so many distractions, I seek to connect the audience with my inner voice, inviting viewers to engage their senses and to be immersed when they least expect.”
