Silvana Martignoni was born in Busto Arsizio, she attended the Art High School  and the “Brera” Academy of Fine Arts  in Milan with her final thesis on the “visionary” poet and engraver  William Blake. Later she specialized in engraving techniques at Urbino Academy. In 1983 she was awarded  first prize in the XXII edition of the Joan Mirò International Drawing Award  from the Fundació Joan Mirò in Barcelona. In the early years of her artistic activity she focused her  interest on the purest engraving techniques (drypoint, mezzotint, etching) and  black and white drawings. In the recent years her language approaches  painting, the artist embarks on a search based on color and brightness in the splendor of the natural world. She paints stories in pearl colours with a technique of thin glazes which  contribute to the realization of an intense dreamy effect.
