Adriana Glaviano

di Ivan Quaroni

Born in Palermo, but graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan, Adriana Glaviano has worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for several fashion magazines, becoming first Fashion Editor of "Vogue Italia," then working as deputy fashion director of magazines of the RCS group such as "Amica," "Io Donna" and "Anna" and, finally, assuming the role of Fashion Director of "Vogue Gioiello" and "Vogue Pelle." Today she works both in the field of publishing and fashion and as an artist, author of sumptuous wallpapers inspired by painting and the trompe-l'oeil genre. The influence of Baroque art is also visible in her digital works, populated with exotic animals and scattered with architectural ruins immersed in a lush natural landscape. The work "Jungle Palace," created exclusively for the art gallery NFTART.CH in Lugano, is a monument to wild nature, but also the art and architecture of the past, a perfect combination of an exotic bestiary and an Arcadian landscape revisited in the light of the impending climate catastrophe. With this work, Adriana Glaviano opposes consumerist and late-capitalist society's destructive effects on the eternal values of beauty and art.
