Roberta Boffo (b. 1986) is an Italian artist, based in Sai Kung, Hong Kong. She has been an art lover and a passionate creator from an early age when designing for her mom’s knitting business, in Oderzo, a small town in the province of Treviso, Italy. Later on she moved to undertake studies in Chinese and Asian languages and cultures at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, which brought her to Beijing, China. Here, she studied business and marketing at Capital Normal University of Beijing and started her career in the education field as a language and art educator and later as education director at an international school.
Working with enthusiastic peers and children Roberta was able to further discover her talents and apply her skills to design highly artistic and creative learning environments for children, whilst exploring and developing her techniques and style.
With an extensive experience in early childhood education and a strong art background, Roberta now resides in Hong Kong, where she continues to produce her works, whilst collaborating with art institutions and various organizations and the local community to spread the joy of art.
As an artist, Roberta takes you into the journey of abstracts and intuitive art. Strongly driven by emotions, Roberta’s art comes alive in monochromatic, lengthy and detailed works that develop from her love for Kandinsky and her passion for Chinese ink and calligraphy.
Roberta explains her monochromatic ink work reflects her peaceful, calm and content state of being, highlighting its therapeutic and meditative power. In her process of creation, Roberta feels as if she becomes a vessel bringing a projection of her mind and all its secrets to life. Since an early age, Roberta was drawn to the colour black and now after many years, she realizes that her crave for a balance between black and white is the driving force in her desire to instil balance in her life.
