Stefania Nicolo

The sculptress
of fairy-tales.

Stefania Nicolo was born in Biella in 1989. Ever since she was a child she loved drawing, a big passion of hers that will lead her to attend Arts High School and then enrol at Accademia di Brera, from which she got a degree in painting. She approached and deepened the art of woodcarving in her father’s workshop and, little by little, this simple hobby transformed itself into a full-fledged profession. In fact, from 2013 she attended several symposia and high-profile competitions that made it possible for her to refine her technique and establish herself with her own personal style, in which painting and sculpting blend and blur in three-dimensional representations of great visual and emotional impact.

Stefania takes us to idyllic and wonderful worlds, in which the sublime of nature speaks directly to the soul of those who watch these works not only with their eyes but with their hearts too

During the eighteenth edition of the International Symposium Luci ed Ombre del legno, that was held at Castello Tesino in the summer of 2019, Stefania impressed both the jury and the public with a work that made her win the third place thanks to its suggestive and quaint style. With The legend of Pale mountains, a work that got a great approval and which won the Public Choice Award, Stefania drew inspiration from the homonymous Trento legend, which tells the story of two young lovers who couldn’t love each other because they came from different worlds. The young girl sits on a crescent moon and dreamily watch the Pale mountains – another way to call the Dolomites. This work, just like the others before it (The legend of Misurina and Alice in Wonderland, to name a few) takes us to idyllic and wonderful worlds, in which the sublime of nature speaks directly to the soul of those who watch these works not only with their eyes but with their hearts too.
She experiments with compositions where the fantastical and magical element tends to ennoble itself and catch the attention and the admiration of the public, who feels like they are being carried in a wonderful and colourful world. Therefore, she is called “the sculptress of fairy-tales”; her works serve as a mouthpiece for childhood dreams and memories, but they are able to move even an adult public. Her pastel shades – laid gently and without covering the natural grain of the wood – creates a chiaroscuro game of lights and shades, giving the work great impact and vibrancy.
