Raffaella della Olga was born in Bergamo, Italy, she lives in Paris.

Having for more than a decade chosen to turn analog and work most exclusively with modified typewriting machine, Raffaella della Olga has with this tool found a way to write and draw her own path to abstraction. What started as a concept (to be an « analog artist » in digital ages, to find freedom through mechanical gestures) has rapidly turn into an infinite exploration and expansion of the space of the page.
Expanding her domain of abstraction, she begins to work with geometrical pattern fabrics of great length on which she notches at regular intervals with a cutter. The fabrics are then presented folded once on themselves, hung on a neon tube, allowing Raffaella to infuse a layer of three-dimensionality in which the patterns cover themselves thus bypassing the flatness of their printed status.
In 2022, Raffaella della Olga began her entry into painting, her vertical adventure, with a series of works based on the same model of the grid, identified as a wall, typed on a monochrome background. From this series onward, a vast field of experimentation opened up, ranging from almost naked black-on-white graphics to textural and tinting effects that are truly painterly.
