Rachele Moscatelli, born in 1993 in Como, Italy, currently lives and works in Milan. She holds an M.A. in Graphics from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera and is an interdisciplinary visual artist whose work spans painting, collage, calcographic engraving, monotype, and digital photographic manipulation. Her distinctive style is characterized by bold lines and vibrant colors.

Moscatelli's art explores themes of female identity, approaching the subject with a non-prejudiced yet non-ideological lens. She often draws inspiration from ancient art, juxtaposing it with ultramodern elements that disrupt traditional imagery, creating a sense of floating in an aseptic space or a space defined by signs. Her subjects are frequently derived from the world of fashion, where she meticulously layers colors to create rich textures and surfaces.

A hallmark of Moscatelli's work is her obsessive attention to detail. This focus invites viewers to engage closely with her pieces, discovering hidden worlds and personal connections upon closer inspection. From a distance, her compositions appear beautifully cohesive, but up close, they reveal intricate details that evoke personal memories and emotions.

Her creative process is deeply rooted in her childhood memories and an extensive photographic archive. She blends and reinterprets these past memories, transforming them into contemporary forms. The skin in her work serves not only as a theme and texture but also as a dynamic canvas, giving her pieces a lifelike quality as if the surfaces themselves breathe.

Moscatelli has a profound connection with the world of artists' books, using them as a medium of expression. She has also ventured into digital and illustrated animation, creating hybrids between analog and digital techniques. Her work continuously seeks to harmonize these mediums, achieving a successful integration and balance between them.
