"Art manifests our inner world that we carry with us but that is completely unknown to us"
Silvana has been a very famous Sicilian chef with participations in radio and television programs and important international projects (Usa, Ireland) connected to the gastronomy of her island. But, fundamentally, she has always been a 360 degrees artist, not only of food. A natural talent with top marks at the Academy of Fine Arts, Silvana ranges with great skill from painting to sculpture, from ceramics to papier-mâché. She left the kitchen to devote herself entirely to creativity, her first great love. SicilianArtisan Foundation has chosen her for papier-mâché.
“I love my land, because I am Sicilian to the last drop of blood in my body.”
The opinion of the Governance
Silvana Recupero, famous and cultured chef capable of enhancing – in the wake of a millenary gastronomic tradition – the flavors of our Island, reveals herself as a versatile and multi-faceted artist when she expresses her creativity through different forms of expression, from painting, to sculpture, to ceramics, up to the very original works in papier-mâché. Iconic creations (paladins, dame, knights…) and at the same time playful, often crossed by an irresistible vein of subtle humor and irony. Creations that speak of Sicily with the language of art.
