Artist - Paola Pivi
Paola Pivi, born in Milan, Italy. Designed poster for Transport for London 2004
Paola Pivi is a young artist living and working in London. Although in the early stages of her career, she has exhibited internationally and is represented by galleries in Italy, Paris and Frankfurt. Working in a range of media, she has become best known for her enigmatic and witty photography. Pivi's photographs are carefully and often ambitiously contrived; making her artistic practice as much about the preparation and process as the final result. In one series of photographs she presents animals in unexpected places. These include zebras against a backdrop of snow covered mountains and a donkey riding in a small boat.
