“Words like ‘cut’ and ‘paste’, used daily in computer language, have regained their meaning in the real world through paper and its infinite possibilities of use. It is a process that takes a lot of time: I learned to think with my hands and to practice patience, precision and perseverance.”
Anna Chiara Valentini was born in Paris and moved to Rome, where she studied and trained as an architect. She discovered, by chance, quilling art, a simple technique that involves the placement of carefully cut and bent strips of paper to make three-dimensional paper artworks. Passionate about calligraphy and lettering she decided to reinterpret the alphabet letters from her point of view. In February 2018 she has been selected among the best 100 creative talents of the Lazio region of Italy.
