Eloisa Gobbo is an Italian
artist currently based in Padua, Italy. In recent years, she
has expressed her creativity using different media such as
painting, sculpture and digital graphic artworks. Her main
interest is in decoration as a form of expression of
personal and social content and repeated pattern, which make
a colourful show in her paintings and carpets.
Her work has been noted for its
use of colour, the incorporation of motifs from both Eastern
and Western decorative tradition and popular culture, and
for its flat surfaces. Among the recurring motifs are
flowers, abstract, geometric and organic ornaments,
arabesques, popular logos, maps, characters and signs.
The artists' inspirations are
not always immediately apparent until examined closely. For
instance some artworks tell a story without words or promote
a personal point of view.
Eloisa Gobbo has won some competitions to create public
works of art, such as those for the Pile-dweller Museum
(Museo palafitticolo di Fiavè) in Trento or for a Nursery
School in Ravina, Trento.
In 2009 her work was shortlisted
for the prestigious Fabbri Prize (Premio Fabbri terza
edizione, Bologna). She has given several solo and group
exhibitions in Italy and abroad, among the most important of
these public shows were "Pop Up Italian Show" Hubei Museum
of Art, Cina (2014), "Italian Newbrow", Civic Museum of
Palazzo Volpi, Como (2012), "Arte italiana 1968-2007
Pittura" Royal Palace Milan (2007), The "Prague 's Biennial
4", Karlin Hall, Praga (2009).
