About

il favola di LA VITA DESIGN

Ciao! Welcome. We’re Tiffany & Andrew, and we run the La Vita Design shop. Our philosophy is simple- create artwork that enriches and improves the world. As artists and designers, we believe art captures and conveys inexpressible aspects of life. We’re not Italiano, but aspire to the life, language and culture. Italian craftsmanship, aesthetics and style influences and inspires our art.

Our shop contains an assortment of artwork created by us. Even though we’re always working together, not all of our work is collaborative. We both often work solo as artists and studio assistants to each other because of our distinct art styles. In the artwork description the artist is credited (the pieces are also signed and are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity- in case you were wondering).

Please continue reading if you’re still wondering more about us; Andrew has a menagerie of opinions.

Andrew’s Story
I’m an artist who studied graphic design, printmaking and philosophy. My artwork is primarily figurative and immersed in concept and narrative. I have been influenced by an immeasurable amount of the universe. But, my favorite subjects are mythology, games, science, magic, technology and existence.

Every piece I make has a story behind its creation. I have a tendency to find myself in unusual circumstances and situations of which the art becomes a resulting incarnation. My work often blurs the reality of these events with dreams and imagination to arrive at pieces which are perceptual composites. In that way the pieces I create are reflections of my personal experience rather than actual objects or places. My objective is to create work which communicates the knowledge I have gained from my experience.

About Tiffany
I’m an artist who studied fiber art, printmaking, sculpture, and painting/drawing, among other disciplines. My current artwork is primarily mixed media paintings that incorporate rust-printed silk into compositions that explore themes of iconography and natural formations in nature. Some topics I’m partial to are social and environmental issues, history and science, or existential notions like identity and the self.

On iconography: The intrigue, culture and controversy surrounding sacred icons and relics inspired the creation of my icon themed work. The “Shroud of Turin” in particular has been a source of inspiration and a great example of a relic that embodies this. Iconoclastic or anti-icon movements have also been of interest. I am especially interested in memory and the practice of memorializing iconic figures.

I create icons whose images are memorialized in iron oxide, or rust, that has been stained onto silk cloth. The images function both as icons and relics. The compositions are minimalist to highlight the ethereal, organic forms. They appear transcendental and spiritual. I typically blend abstraction and figuration in my work to create a contrast between the ephemeral and the concrete.

On natural formations:
I can’t escape my reverential attitude towards nature and the landscape around me. I’m always awestruck by it and therefore it’s a theme I keep coming back to. So my interest in memory also traverses into geological and abstract landscape themed works which examine history as it is recorded in the natural world. I consider the concept of memory in the context of the landscape and the earth processes that maintain a record of its past.

So that sums up who we are as artists...

Insert paragraph detailing our extravagant lifestyle outside work here. Yes, the previous sentence was intentional.
