Silvia Pelissero, better known as Agnes Cecile, is a self-taught artist in the midst of taking the art world by storm. Much of her success is accredited to her videos of speed-painting, such as the one below.
Born in 1991 in Rome, her only formal art education was obtained in high school. She is renown for blending realism with abstract elements. Using mostly watercolour as her medium, combined with occasional others (such as ink, acrylic, pencil, and pen) she creates fantastical portraits that breathe with life and movement. Her paintings contain a vibrancy and life that is formidable for such a young artist.
