The artist of this work, Juliana Lupacchino, is a native of Savannah, Georgia. She experienced much of her childhood in the downtown historic Savannah district. She eventually graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2017, with a degree in fibers. During her time at SCAD, she explored both pattern development and material exploration through large scale installation work. Throughout her life, she has always been passionate about color, and how it could be explored through methods such as pattern, installation fine art, and now, finger painting. Her unique method of finger painting is both childlike, and expressive. She believes that there lies a sense of freedom when you leave the brush behind. Juliana finds that finger painting brings about unique shapes and texture that a brush would not lend itself to. Whatever she is creating, it is important that the audience gains a feeling of joy when viewing Juliana’s work. Joy is a key element throughout all of her work. She expresses that through color, shape, and scale. Juliana currently works on large scale paintings and murals. Her paintings are colorful, abstract, organic, and adventurous.
