Roberta Maddalena (aka Biró)
Her drawings, paintings and illustrations have always had spontaneous references to the East and to Nature.
The subjects she draws are morphologically connected to our world, evoked solely through her use of colours and shapes,
and thus showing Nature's sublime power and divinity. Her unique perception and observations brought her to study Chinese
calligraphy and musical cultures reaching beyond the European confines.
She works in fashion, advertising, publishing and music.
At times she makes incursions in worlds akin to illustration
such as animation and video, type design and calligraphy.
She collaborates with Nurant Illustration Magazine.
As a creativity trainer she teaches illustration, hand-lettering and drawing
to Classes and Corporates and does live drawing-performances.
