Barbara Nati, born1980, is an italian artist, living and working between Britain and Italy. She took classes at Parson School of Design, New York. She has since established an international reputation for her complex compositions-hybrids.
Barbara Nati’s oeuvre lies beyond what is commonly intended as photography, mostly standing out for its estranging effect. Her profoundly lyric investigation takes shape through a wise and skillful use of digital and technological tools. Her language always hovers between poetic and ironic, delivering essential social and ethical messages, with a particular focus on environmental issues. She was awarded the The Ingram collection purchase Prize in London, she won the People’s Choice section of Bridgeman Studio Award, London, she was awarded the Ashurst Art Prize Employee’s choice award, London in 2015, the Andrea Mantegna Prize in Mantua in 2014 and the Renaissance Art Prize by the Italian cultural Institute of London in 2010. She has exhibited at several Art Fairs including MIA Milan Image Fair, Asia Contemporary Hong Kong, ArtVerona, Peckham international Art Fair and The Other Art Fair in London. She has been a resident artist at European Artists in Olofström, Sweden in 2013 and Digital Arts Studios in Belfast in 2009.
