Lara Messina is an Italian abstract painter.

In her paintings the impulse to create is brought out by a wide, conscious use of mixed media and composition, which shows the dual nature of her education, both artistic and technical, and her inclination for graphic design.

Her journal-like approach carefully breaks down her experiences and rebuilds them into new, colour bursting shapes. Lara’s works convey her perception of life and events to the observers, turning introspection into reflection.


Acrylics, oil colours, pastels, pencils, collage, stucco, natural and synthetic materials.
