Giorgia Oldano is a young Italian artist specialized in drawing wildlife. In order to construct her paintings, the artist photographs her subjects, and uses these pictures as a first inspiration. Her preferred medium is pencil, and her absolute master over it permeates through her artworks, conferring them a strong and unique identity.
From early on in her life, Giorgia Oldano used painting as a way to express herself. Now the artist does this by denouncing the slow disappearance of precious forms of life, by making the subjects of her paintings animal species that are facing extinction. This effect is achieved by capturing the gaze of these animals, revealing the emotions that arise when one engages with nature.
To translate her personal connection with nature to her paintings, in 2014 Giorgia decided to abandon color to devote herself to pencil drawings. This technique allowed her to evolve, giving her the opportunity to delve into a more accurate study of animals in their natural habitats.
In 2012 she won the renowned award of Italian champion of Natural Drawing (Oasis drawing nature competition), which allowed her to live a unique experience in Africa between Malawi and Zambia. In 2013 she won the title of International Artist in the Mammal category of the BCC Wildlife Artist Competition (UK). Lastly, in 2013, 2014, and 2016 her paintings were selected to be exposed at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, in central Wisconsin, USA, for the prestigious yearly exhibition BIRDS IN ART. In 2017 she won the first award during SELVATICA Festival, the most important national wildlife festival in Italy.
During 2018 she was invited again for the exhibition BIRDS IN ART, USA.
