About me

My name is Lucia Coghetto, but I’m known as Ghetto.

I was born in Mestre (Venice) in 1961. I currently live and work in the province of Vicenza, North Italy.

I have been painting all my life, learning side by side with established artists, and following private courses.
For over a decade I have been painting on plaster, in the style of the frescos.

My latest works are based on old wooden boards that have already been used for packagings. Printed markings might occasionally appear on these supports, together with the grain and the knots in the wood, in perfect synergy with the image.

I also like to focus on the female figure, expressing my own identity. In the paintings on canvas, faces and expressions are enhanced, magnifying details to take up all the space and making the mood the real subject of the artwork.
