Bio

DMINC is Delfina Mincarelli

“If we are willing to move boulders … We can even change the course of rivers”
Dminc

Dminc is an Italian-Swiss painter and sculptress, born in Lausanne  and currently living and working in Milan, where she placed her Atelier and Showroom in the very heart of the Fashion District: Via Della Spiga, a prestigious location in which  art meets Fashion and Fashion is inspired by Art.
She spent her childhood in Frascati, in the countryside around Rome, before moving to Montecarlo when she was eleven. In the Principality she began her French-International education which continued also after her transfer to Geneva, in the French Switzerland, when she was sixteen.
Here, after graduating at Geneva International High School,  attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Geneva for one year where she specialized mainly in figurative painting.
Despite being a model student any kind of course she frequented, Dminc kept believing that more important than the academic study of art, was the accurate study of ancient and modern masters.
Trying to explore the secrets of their paintings, she initiated to search museums and art collections throughout Europe, discovering her mentor Gustav Klimt whose style and technique will be very inspiring to her.
In 2004, after nearly twenty-five years spent in Switzerland, she wanted to come back in Italy moving to Bologna and then to Milan.
Dminc loves to define herself as a storyteller and her paintings as her stories. The artist looks like a volcano ready to explode and to bring out everything lives inside herself. “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside me” , the artist seems to suggest when she pulls out her inner voice, her huge imagination and creativity along with the finest parts of this world, putting them in her works to become the best poems of her natural and worldly poetry. And wisely mixing classical materials with ultra modern components, Dminc wishes to disclose again, the endless beauty of the sea, of the universe, of the flowers, of the snow with its crystals, but also the astonishing magnetism of the most incredible adventure of all time: life.
And in order to accomplish this duty, Dminc picks extraordinary lives, belonged or belonging to people, who in different fields, have opened and get followed a path.
In little more than a square meter of canvas, Dminc, reports as photographs, the most delightful snapshots of these special lives, cuts out the most significant fragments of them, highlights reminiscence gone lost, makes the character relive in the most important moment of his/her life.
Dminc loves telling stories, no matter what they are, what matters is that each of them is told with the heart and the eyes of a child who still knows how to feel wonder looking at what beautiful world and  life give us everyday. Her stories start here, but they are carried on  with all the mastery of a great expert teacher who has been specializing her technique, style and skills for years. Because she is the most professional child in the Contemporary Art world…
