Jennifer is an young Italian artist (born in the 1985), passionate about drawing since childhood and always been self-taught, this artistic vein grew steadily over the years up to join in 2010 at the Institute of Fine Arts in Vercelli (Italy). Here, attending the drawing class for one year and the painting class for two years, she honed her skills and produced highly detailed drawings, from the simplest design traced in graphite Jennifer comes quickly to have excellent knowledge of various techniques to not only drawing but also painting, we can find her works made with charcoal, graphite, sanguine, dry pastels, watercolor pencils, colored pencils, oil pastels, chalks, watercolors, acrylic and oil paints.
Jennifer performs her works constantly going in search of reality, perfection, harmony and beauty who can excite the viewer.
She loves to draw and portray different kinds of subjects but she’s specialized in making automotive drawings and drawings about the Carnival of Venice.
Because of Jennifer’s deeply rooted artistic passion and talent, she was welcomed to display her creations on the international stage at an exposition in Venice, Italy. To that end, her drawing titled “Portrait of a Mask, Venice Carnival” was showcased in the Venice “LIV8 Art Gallery”. Further, Jennifer Egista’s “Venetian Artistic Masks” and the drawing “The Diamnond Mask” were prominently displayed in the acclaimed Italian “San Gallo Theatre” for two years and also in the “Hotel Casa Petrarca”, both in Venice.
Not only the purely artistic projects in which Jennifer is committed, but also graphics. Wherever needed creativity, Jennifer does not hold back ..! She has designed the livery of the P1 offshore crew Official World Championship of Belgium in 2009.
The 2B1 Racing Team owner personally recruited Jennifer to develop and design a new, fresh approach to their existing team powerboat designs. Built by the American company “Fountain”, and sponsored by “Furnibo”, the powerboat and its new graphic design truly became the face of the team. The boat was featured in numerous brochures and pamphlets throughout the powerboat racing world. In this literature, Jennifer was lauded as the boat’s sole graphic designer. The boat ultimately competed at the World Championship of the Powerboat P1 class: the most competitive mono-hull class. Having participated in some of the most grueling events, the boat, adorned with Jennifer Egista’s design, has been featured throughout Europe, on international television programs, and
nautical magazines all over the world. This world-wide exposure ultimately led to other design requests, as other professionals recognized Jennifer’s talents.
On June 2016 her drawing “Carnival of Venice” has been choosen to be published in the book “CP Hidden Treasures” edited by the American artist Ann Kullberg. In this book you can find amazing drawings from 150 artists choosen from all over the World.
On July 2016 Jennifer definitely won her first award as “Best Emerging Artist 2016” in the Australian art competition “Colourbration 2016” dedicated to realistic coloured pencil drawings.
July 2016 has been a great month for Jennifer because she also had her drawing “Dragster Challenge” published on the American magazine “Colored Pencil Magazine” and an article on the American magazine “Color” with a critique of my drawing “The Diamond Mask” written by Ann Kullberg.
From August 2016 Jennifer is a “Super Artist” for the charity organization “Supershoes”.
