About me

Tiziana Sanna italian wildlife artist

My work starts from the observation of the reality that surrounds me, caught as a whole and then in its individual details, trying each time to grasp the shapes, colors, lights and shadows, and then tell them, offering my personal vision. 

The choice of the subject to be realized is for me every time a journey, a continuous research, the creative process of each work is the result of the sensations that transmits to me the subject and the emotions that I feel at that moment.

In my first artistic phase I painted mostly portraits, subjects that I continue to carry out on commission: the choice of the subject to be realized is for me every time a research, an exploration of the human condition and its relationship with the outside world, the creative process of each work is the result of the sensations that the subject transmits to me and the emotions that I feel at that moment.

Later I painted urban landscapes, some of the cities I visited, with their lights, streets, squares, glimpses, perspectives, with a colorful and material style, akin to pop art.

In the current artistic phase I paint exotic animals, mostly endangered, such as elephants, rhinos, tigers, lions, jaguars, leopards, giraffes, zebras and animals typical and endemic to my land, the Sardinian territory: the Sardinian deer, the mouflon, the wild boar, the flamingos, the owl, the beard.

In my paintings the subjects are paint in every smallest detail: the countless folds of the skin, the patterns of the individual hairs that are painted one by one. To achieve these results, when I work I use gigantographies of the chosen subject, caught in different shots, and the computer that allows me to enlarge every single part to capture every detail. In the compositional choice I prefer a photographic cut, shots that enlarge and focus the user's attention on the subject.

I use different techniques according to the subject and the effects I want to obtein.

I'm Tiziana Sanna, an italian artist, who lives and works in Cagliari, Sardinia.

I graduated in literature with artistic specialization and thanks to private courses of drawing, oil, acrylic and watercolor painting, I developed my passion in painting.

I chose the name of art Tisha because I wanted the initials of my name will merge to create a new sound.
