Biography

Chris Rocchegiani was born in 1977 in Jesi (Ancona), where she currently lives and works. She graduated in figurative arts from the State Institute of Art in Jesi and obtained a degree in Graphic Design from the ISIA in Urbino. She is an artist, art director, graphic design teacher at the ACCA Academy, and Basic Design lecturer at the Department of Design and Architecture at the University of Camerino.

She is the Co-founder of CH RO MO alongside Roberto Montani, a research duo focusing on visual languages in design and art; and the Founder of Pensiero Manifesto, a collective of creatives including artists, graphic designers and illustrators, who use posters as a public utility tool, cultivating practices of listening and giving back to the community.

Through various pictorial techniques and executive solutions, Chris Rocchegiani’s practice reflects on the compositional aspects that arise from the overlapping of line and color. Her paintings are characterised by the coexistence of sections of diverse nature: figurative, human, and animal elements blend with informal and synthetic parts, dictated by the predominance of line and action, and free colour fields, with a more lyrical and evocative character. Thus, multiple narratives, both real and potential, corporeal and transcendental, coexist on the surface of her paintings, like suspended fragments of a poem in transformation. Rocchegiani’s language is pluralistic and intentionally nonlinear, where error, contradiction, change, and contamination are necessary attributes of a painterly experience that opens up to the possible and the manifold, aspiring to the sensory experience of the sacred.

In the field of design, her projects have been awarded at the European Design Awards, at the Aiap Women Design Awards, by ADI (entering the shortlist for the Compasso d’Oro award), and by the Cariplo Foundation for Cultural Innovation.
