From the organizer:
The exhibition “Heavy Rain”, in which Anna started a dialogue between her art and the figures and the signs created by the children.
Anna Borghi was born in Italy in 1980. She graduated in 2004 in Painting and in 2010 in Cultural Heritage, both degrees obtained at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, in Milan. She started to work with galleries in 2003 while she was still student. She won national awards and now her artworks can be found in remarkable private international collections.
She started to work with children in 2005. Two years later she moved to Spain, then in 2010 to Vietnam. Here she met children of “Pho Cap” School, a small school for street children located in HCMC. This school helps disadvantaged children, and it was opened in 2001 by three Vietnamese teachers with the support of the local authorities.
Since 2011 Anna has been teaching art in this school. She teaches with a strong method, in which students start a journey not only towards the masterpieces of international artists, but also exploring themselves. This experience created a massive change in Anna’s life and began a strong interaction between her artworks and the children’s works.
