08.11.2023 SOLO EXHIBITION OF RAISA AMBROS “The Colours of My Infinity”

On November 8th, at the Central State Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan, will take place the Opening of the Personal Exhibition “The Colours of My Infinity” of the Italian-Moldavian artist Raisa Ambros.

Raisa is a multi-award-winning artist based in London and has a special passion for colour, which she mixes in an original way to create her captivating abstracts. Her paintings are rich in details, which playfully open up to an infinite number of interpretations.

Raisa was born in the Republic of Moldova in 1973, and her first contact with art happened at the Pedagogical College in Soroca, which she attended for 4 years. The painter continued her studies in Audio-visual Communication at the Academy of Theatre and Film in Bucharest (Romania), Faculty of Film and Television, where she studied in detail all the techniques of creating a film, from concept to editing and film review.

During her years at ATF (between 1992 and 1997), she took a Storyboarding course headed by artist and professor Mihai Bandac, himself a well appreciated painter in Romania, who discovered her talent and had the generosity to guide her towards mastering her visual skills. Countless images were drawn to create various storyboards, and each film frame had its own visual message and composition. Professor Bandac noticed from the very start that the lines in Raisa's paintings are not straight, but in continuous movement, and suggested that she has graphic qualities which could enable her to create cartoons. Her first collective exhibition took place in 1996, in the hallway of the Faculty of Theatre and Film in Bucharest, and there Raisa stood out because she was the only one in the group who created a portrait of a monochromatic character, in blue.

After completing her Master's studies, Raisa Ambros chose a career in television, where she worked for several years as a screenwriter and created ideas and concepts for many successful shows for MediaPro, which were aired on the company’s famous TV station, ProTV.

In 2002, she moved to Rome, Italy, where she specialized in journalism and qualified as the first person from the Republic of Moldova to become a member of the Union of Journalists in Italy.

Raisa returned to painting in 2019, after she moved to London, UK, where she realized she had enough time and resources to dedicate herself to painting full time. She gradually gathered a lot of experience and her talent could not wait to manifest itself on the canvas in all the colours of the universe. After being immediately discovered by a gallery in Paris, the artist was invited to participate to numerous exhibitions all over the world. She resumed contact with teacher Mihai Bandac, who was happy to guide her in her new but welcoming new career and entrust her with the greatest secrets of colours and painting. In parallel, Raisa Ambros had been studying Abstract and Fine Arts privately with various artists from the USA, UK, Italy, Germany, Russia, Moldova, Romania, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and France. Her signature and personality in art were clear and recognizable from her very first pieces. Her unique style and movement of forms, as well as her playful and masterful use of an infinity of colours was appreciated both by her peers and by art houses from all over the world.

Raisa Ambros has exhibited her work internationally, with Solo show in Los Angeles (USA), Seoul (South Korea), Solo Booth shows in Paris (France), Venice (Italy), Osaka (Japan), Barcelona (Spain), and in over 30 group exhibitions at galleries, museums and art fairs. Her artworks are featured in prestigious magazines in the United Kingdom, like British Vogue, Tatler, The World of Interiors, House and Garden, and in The Untitled magazine in New York, and can be admired in private collections in the USA, Europe and Asia. The magic of her outstanding colours also shines in print, in many art books and catalogues.

Raisa's art received important awards in different countries, like Claude Monet award, Leonardo da Vinci award, Top Artists award, Michelangelo award, Career Art award. In September 2023 the Italian Ambassador to Montecarlo, H. E. Giulio Alaimo, offered her the Oscar Prize for Creativity, an award granted every 2 years by Art Expo Gallery. She was also nominated for the Leadership in Art award in Washington (USA), Global 100 People to Shine in Seoul (South Korea), and Luxembourg Art Prize, to be received soon.

The Colours of My Infinity Solo Exhibition will feature over 20 of her masterpieces that perfectly mirror Raisa's personality and signature. Most of her pieces are in 3D optical effect, as her style reflects the infinity of movement of the forms and shades, through many layers of paint as textures, that make the artwork even more mysterious and the viewer curious to discover a variety of interpretations and meanings behind every layer. The infinity of colours and movement shows the freedom of expression of the artist, with no barriers or limits of creativity. Her abstracts are unique, being the work of pure imagination, making it impossible to copy them, as it is impossible to copy a free mind and person like Raisa. The special quality of her pieces is that they could be hung in all 4 positions, obtaining a different image and understanding of the concept.

Raisa has already participated in few group exhibitions with the Kazakh artists in galleries and museums, and is known in the art community in Kazakhstan, but this is the first time she will have a Solo exhibition in Almaty. She is also a co-organizer and co-curator for the group exhibition "Out of time. Emotions and accents", held at the same time at the State Museum in Almaty, where she is bringing over 10 international artists to exchange the values of their art.
