Cristina Metelli was born in Milan and studied at art school there as a teenager. She later immigrated to Adelaide where she continued her artistic education, completing a Bachelor Degree in Visual Art (Honours). Her studio practice is based on painting and sculpture.
Inspired by the diversity and beauty of nature, her work investigates the depth to which human lives are entwined and connected to the natural environment through subjects of belonging, spirit of place and nature’s vulnerability. Cristina’s work has been extensively exhibited and collected in Adelaide, interstate and overseas.
