PAOLA GRIZI

Paola Grizi developed her love of art when she was still a child, while watching the work of her grandfather, who was a well known Italian painter and sculptor. After graduating from high school in classical studies and earning a first class honors degree in literature, she worked in the journalistic and editorial field. Her artistic imprinting reemerged later with great strength and was responsible for her choosing to dedicate herself to art full time

She had the opportunity to refine her skills when she encountered Maestro Salvatore Rizzuti, Professor of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Art of Palermo, who perfected her technique in shaping human figures.

In 2015 she won the “CICA 2015 Public`s Prize” (Museu de Ceramica de L`Alcora –Spain), in 2014 the 3rd Biannual International ceramics contest of Ascoli Piceno, in 2009 the special critical prize in Florence (La Pergola Arte). In 2014 and 2015 she has been invited by Chinese Changchun Municipality to represent Italy at the 3rd and 4th China Changchun International Ceramics Symposium. In 2016 she was invited by the Museu de Ceramica de L`Alcora as a member of the jury of 36° CICA 2016.
