Introspective

Keziat

On exhibit 8/27/18 to 10/1/18

Born in San Severo, Italy as Kezia Terracciano, Roman artist Keziat graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Foggia in Puglia. She initially began creating paintings on canvas and during that period worked with major publishing companies doing cartoons and illustrations. Around that time, Keziat also began to collaborate with Violipiano Visual, creating and producing interdisciplinary performances of dance, music, visual arts, and theater, creating an unusual and extraordinary visual impact. Her first cycle, Visionaria starting in 2009, began with black and white drawings and were followed by performances, videos, and installation. Hybrid, her second cycle of exhibitions debuted in 2016 and again traveled the world to great acclaim. Introspective, Keziat's third cycle now in our Galleria, takes the viewer on a visionary and imaginary journey, stimulating all the senses. Using her interdisciplinary skills and imagination she brings us on a new and exciting path of discovery. Introspective will next venture on to Asia and Oceania.

Exhibiting throughout the world from Rome, Johannesburg, Bangkok and Stuttgart to Miami, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, and more, Keziat continues to offer viewers a window in to a world of imagination and illusion. Come experience this unique exhibit!
