Tiziana Pers is a visual artist and activist of human and animal rights. Her works are full of metaphorical meanings about the conscience of respect for animal life, with the aim of moving the viewer.
She deals with the role and responsibility of contemporary art in relation to the otherness represented by animals and, more generally, with the need to rethink ourselves and our world through biocentrism.
Pers was first honorary prize of her degree in Comparative Literature from the University of Udine and collaborates with philosophers and art historians in different publications and philosophical essays.
She is a versatile artist whose work is expressed in drawings, paintings, photographs, installations, sculptures and performances.
She has been awarded with such important prizes as the Mario Razzano Prize in 2015 and the Celeste Prize in 2006.
She lives and works in Trivignano Udines, Italy.
