New York based artist, she always had a strong artistic tendency that leaded her to attend the Ensad School of Arts (Ecole National Superieure Des Arts Decoratifs) in Paris where she post-graduated in post-production and animation. In Paris she have worked for several years at Mikros Image and Duboi, on the sfx of movies such as "Asterix and Obelix against Ceasar" by Claude Zidi, and then for several commercials. In conjunction with this she achieved an MFA in Art History & Aesthetics at the prestigious Sorbonne University in Paris (Paris 1). In those years the interest in photography grows more and she decides to explore this artistic medium also in US. In New York she worked for numerous commercials and had the honor to work in David LaChapelle Studio as Web Advisor and as Digital Director in 2011. She still lives and works in NYC. Anna Paola Pizzocaro about her work : “In my thoughts on the impact of climate change on our planet, that inspire my artistic production, I had imagined a possible flood set in New York in an apartment where people and animals are seeking refuge and salvation as a hypothetical Noah's Ark. My series “Unanswered Prayers” is a tale, an illusory journey through reality and hope. A human figure awakens while floods coming into her room through a mirror, as closely connected with the story of the creation and re-creation as a demonstration of God's irritation unleashed by mankind's evil deeds. The universe as conceived by the ancient was made up of a flat disk-shaped habitable earth with the heavens above and below the underworld of the dead. These three were surrounded by a watery "ocean" of chaos. In this similar universe a man and a woman are drawn in a "Journey-flood" where animals also are afraid, absorbed in a real world that increasingly flooded by a virtual one. In the dream, connection with salvation from waters, the only one able to survive is the human, the only animal that can adapt and be saved in the world he creates.”
