Bianca Lever Bianca Lever was born in The Hague in The Netherlands and graduated from the Art Academy in 2015. Since then she has been working as a fulltime painter and lives most of the time in Italy in Sassoferrato where she has her own studio. Through the years her work has evolved from artistic nudes in black and white towards expressive, colorful portraits into the figurative realism paintings on large scale canvases that she creates today. Bianca’s paintings are like snapshots, emotions caught in the moment telling small anecdotes. Inviting the viewer to guess what is happening. There’s an interaction between the playful background in mixed media and the realistic figure in oil. This causes a tension field which creates a feel of separation of the figure from the background. Apart from the Netherlands she has shown her work internationally in Stockholm (Sw), Dresden (BRD), Sassoferrato (It), Fratterosa (It) and now in Milan (It).
