Barbara Mansi Art

I am a self-taught professional artist. I specialise in mosaics and drawings. All my work comprises one-off pieces and I also accept commissions to work on bespoke items. My drawings sometimes form the basis of my mosaics. I started my career as a mosaicist by creating descriptive pieces of art and I then gradually developed into a more abstract artist developing a style which I now fully own. My choice of colours is influenced by the vibrant landscapes of my country of origin, Italy and by the Mediterranean where I spend most of my holidays. I use glass, tiles, marble and stones. I believe that what makes my art unique is its vibrancy, colours and use of suggestive shapes. What I intend to show in my art is not necessarily what you see and it is its subjectivity that I find very precious and exciting.
