Virginia Tozzi was born in 1988. Originally from Florence, she is currently based in London.
In the course of her artistic career, Virginia performed several personal exhibitions within Italy, United States, and the United Kingdom.
During her painting studies at the Academy of Fine Arts, Virginia got intrigued by photography, moving from raw film Lomography towards sharper digital captures. In line with this, photography is still a major part of her creative process for paintings and drawings.
Virginia considers painting her best form of expression, fluctuating from conceptual to informal compositions and occasionally, this last is merged with other techniques and materials.
Virginia’s artworks pivot around defined themes. Nature is a recurrent topic, and it is often used to explore different concepts, including the alteration of reality and materials, as well as time lawlessness.

Nature is a recurrent topic in her artworks, and it is often used to explore different concepts, including the alteration of reality and materials, as well as time lawlessness.
In her artworks, in fact, emerge the use of different techniques and raw materials mixed with the use of material colours.
The capture of the state's changing of the material, in fact, is another thematic used very often by the artist, whether you speak of colours whether we speak about different processing stages.
At the base of her creative project, there is also photography. They allow her to deconstruct the reality captured through the film to create an informal painting, maintaining relationships among the subjects/objects and the space surrounding them.
Project's name: Rétro
Because a new object, even if it recalls the past, will never be defined as vintage but rétro.
Phrases and words sometimes appear in between my brush strokes, painting atmospheres, emotions, and actions difficult to express. They may be nothing special, but they surely exist.
