Engraving Atelier

Claudia Casaletti

I attended the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan, where I was awarded my diploma in 1992.

From the same year onwards I took part in personal and collective graphics exhibitions in several Italian towns (Milan, Genoa and Urbino with the National Artists Syndicate and  the Association of Engravers from Liguria, Contemporary Art Fair in Venturina (LI) and Torino, in the exhibition of original prints of the Italian register of ancient and contemporary engravers at the Art Gallery in Bagnacavallo (RA),  graphics triennial of Brescia, graphics biennial in Castelleone (CR), and so on..

In 1998 I opened a bookshop specialising in art books, which became a meeting point and an exhibition space for young artists. I also worked as an art printer in Milan and Biella and I worked  with the production of “ex libris” at the request of collectors.

In 2007, during my wedding trip, I visited Finnmark for the first time and was fascinated by its irresistible charm; in May 2008 I left Italy and moved to Kongsfjord where I started my Engraving Atelier.

Since 2010 I  collaborate with local art galleries all over the Finnmark area and northern Norway .

Exhibitions followed in different cities and with nice results.
