Assaya is a contemporary painter, living and working in Rome. Her colorful artworks are a reflection of her inner experiences and a desire to break out of the shell of established stereotypes. The artist's career began quite recently. It was preceded by 25 years of professional activity in the field of financial analytics, saturated with mathematical algorithms, formulas, and econometric calculations. Life took a turning point when she was diagnosed with cancer in the summer of 2014. Fate gave her a second chance at life, which radically changed her future destiny. Having behind her a big life experience, professional career as a financier, a Ph.D. in Economics, but she decides to start her life from scratch. Her creative nature finally finds her refuge in painting. In 2020, Assaya enrolls at the Rome University of Fine Arts, to receive a master's degree in Painting. From this moment, the artist's conscious creative activity begins.
“I got into the world of art from the field of financial analytics, it was a very unexpected transition even for myself. However, an analytical way of thinking, received through practice over the years, is certainly one of the tools that I use in the creative process.” - the artist states.
In her works, she follows the disclosure of the inner content of things in external forms. On the path of creativity, she attempts to overcome prejudices, to free herself from the usual attitudes and imposed preconditions, to move away from methodological templates and clichés. This approach is reflected in her work. Assaya is not attempting to impose her vision on the viewer. Each contemplator has the right to form his own understanding of the artist's painting through personal perception, personal life experience and feelings. This is what the invisible dialogue between the artist and the viewer is.
Assaya works in different genres and uses mediums and techniques that correspond to the meanings and objectives of a particular project. The process of creating each painting is not only another experiment and ways for improving technical skills for the artist, but also ways of expression is another discovery.
