Claudia Giraudo was born in Turin in 1974, where she still lives and works. She graduated in 2001 with honors from the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin. Partially involving her personal experiences, combined with a message to decipher, as though the artist communicates through an unknown tongue, the viewer is required to translate through his or her own personal knowledge and experiences. By means of her symbols, Claudia gently places subjects on canvas who, as messengers, appear ethereal, evanescent, sprites of the air, and within the air, so thin and impalpable that they each deliquesce. Like actors unaware of the role they engage, Claudia Giraudo’s characters move upon a backcloth animated by matter that is also oneiric, almost as though to remind us that we, too, are made of the same material as dreams; and our brief lifetimes are but enclosed within the space and time of a dream.
She frequently exhibits at art fairs, private galleries and public institutions. She participated in the Venice Biennale, Italy Pavilion in 2011. Her artworks are present in more than 200 private and corporate collections in Europe, America, Asia and Australia. They are also found in permanent art collections and national and international museum acquisitions, including the Harmony Art Foundation in Mumbai (India), the MACIST Museum in Biella, the Eusebio Museum in Alba (Cn), the Sala del Consiglio in Bossolasco (Cn) and the Civic Museum of Bevagna (Pg)
