ANNA PAOLA PIZZOCARO
I was born in Milan, successfully graduating in Italy from the Fine Art Academy of Milan, and in France where I obtained a post-diploma qualification at the ENSAD ( Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Décoratifs ) in Paris in 1998, I later pursued and achieved an MFA from Sorbonne University in Paris with Honors (Paris 1).
After Graduation in Paris I worked for Mikros Image and Duran Duboi and I was involved in the Post Production of some famous movies such as Polanski 's "The Ninth Gate", Asterix and Obelix vs. Caesar" by Claude Zidi , "Joan of Arc" by Luc Besson and "Epouse - moi" by Harriet Marin, to finally move on to work on various advertising campaigns.
I graduated from ICP of NYC (USA) in 2009.
I had the wonderful chance to work for David LaChapelle in his New York Studio for three years in a motivating environment.
My first solo museum exhibition was held at the Lu.C.C.A ( Center of Contemporary Art in Lucca ) in Tuscany back in 2012, under the artistic direction of Maurizio Vanni, where was exhibited my series "Unanswered Prayers", featuring a full 30 large-format works.
During my career, I received various awards in New York, in London, in Milan, Linz in Austria and in Monte Carlo. In Linz, back in 2000, I was conferred a very significant recognition : the Honorary Mention for the International Prix Ars Electronica in Computer Animation.
In 2014 my series "Unanswered Prayers" has been object of a solo show at the Italian Embassy in Washington DC, USA.
