EPstyle - handpainted pillows.

My name is Eva Pianfetti. I am an Italian painter.
I started painting at the age of ten. At fourteen I enrolled at the art school and, after this, at the Academy of Fine Arts.
In my pictorial production I differentiate the "decorative" works, among which those I propose here, from those concerning artistic research properly so-called .

I realize the EPstyle works with a passion for painting that has been with me for a lifetime and with the professionalism gained over years of practice.

The works I propose are all unique & original. I do not do the same painting twice, because I think that one of the most fascinating features of applied pictorial art lies in making unique objects.

EP as "Evolution is in your Personality" is my "slogan". I want to underline the importance of the uniqueness of the individual, who, with his particular personality, with his way of being and existing, can give a boost to the evolution understood as positive growth of society and of the human being. Individuality but not individualism.
