Corno

In 2009, the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal asked Corno to create a canvas to mark the 30th anniversary of the event. The artist, who also happened to be celebrating 30 years in painting, produced the superb Face for Jazz, simultaneously paying tribute to the music that has always been part of her creative process. The silkscreen prints taken from the piece were such a rage that the stock was quickly depleted.

Corno’s art is passionate, extravagant, colourful, and urban. New York City’s vitality, where she has lived now for almost 20 years, explodes on huge canvases. She continually sheds new light on the human body via bold brush strokes and flamboyant colors. Fusing post-pop with neo-expressionism, Corno’s works fascinate and resound globally. Her art can be found in prestigious galleries in New York, Paris, London, Monaco, Venice, Singapore, Hong Kong, Seoul, and Dubai. Her paintings are part of prominent private, public, and museum collections world-wide.
