Daniela d’Arielli (ITA, 1978) lives and works between Pescara and Rome.
In her multidisciplinary artistic practice she works with painting, photography and installations.
The relationship with water is a deep and ancestral one. The source of her work is water as life, resource, memory and magic.
After having spent a year at the Kent Institute of Art and Design (UK) in 2003 she graduated in Fine Art Painting at the Urbino Academy of Fine Arts. In 2015, she earned a specialization in Photography from IED in Rome. She has held art shows in a variety of museums and galleries. From 2008 to 2018 she worked as a photographer and art producer for Pollinaria, an organic farm and research organization based in Abruzzo, Italy. In 2013, as part of her residency at the Brazilian gallery Graphos:Brasil with who she has collaborated from 2012 to 2016, she crossed the Atlantic Ocean on a Cargo ship sailing from Le Havre to Rio de Janeiro. Some of the reflections developed during this voyage, have later inspired her solo exhibit "a’mare" curated by Enzo De Leonibus held at Museolaboratorio - Ex Manifattura Tabacchi in Città Sant’Angelo (Pescara, Italy) which closed in February 2018. She is the finalist at the Rospigliosi Art Prize 2018 with a work which was shown at her a’mare exhibit.
