Self-portrait w/ Bach's violin concert BWV-1041 // year 2009
Review from Mexican Artist & Photographer José Luis Sandoval:
"Sol Savoretti is a talented painter with a personal style. Her work is covered with a slightly nostalgia from her childhood. In fact, sometimes I think that she´s learning to be a child with the pass of the years.
Her little characters works like a vehicle to tell the tales of her life: her encounters with music, her discovers in love (all kinds of love) and her frightening (but delighting) way between fantasy and reality.
She likes to make music, being the violin her favourite sound. Photography is one of her newest passions too."
Hi! My name is Sol, and I was born in a small city called Rosario, in Argentina.
I began to draw and paint in a Youth Center when I was 4, and kept on studying Arts until I graduated from the Art School of the National University of Rosario.
Although Illustration & Design became my main career, the idea of spending the rest of my life doing one same thing forever just freaks me out, and I guess that's why my style shows a certain eclecticism and frequently adapts to different needs and techniques.
I have lots of passions -most of them related to Arts-, but Travelling became the main one. I can't wait to see all the beautiful corners of this amazing world, and I was very lucky to travel to may different countries as a Photographer, although there are so many more on my pending list. Before that, I studied and worked in the Animation area in a few TV spots and as a Background Designer in three films; I wrote two children's books and one more for adults that I am either still processing or was too lazy to find a publisher yet; and finally, I devoted my time to music by learning, with a lot of effort, to play violin and sing.
Right now I'm working as a freelance Illustrator, Photographer and Designer, and focusing on a musical project with two amazing musicians in my city that we expect to be presenting by the end of the year. And, of course, I'm already working on the artwork for this album ;-)
Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek at my work. Feel free to check out my photographs here. Have a great day... everyday!
