Raffaella della Olga was born in Bergamo (Italy), in 1967. After a brief career as a criminal lawyer, she studied Fine Arts in Milan, Brera. In 2002, she moved to Paris where she lives and works. Following a key encounter with "Un coup de dés jamais n'abolira le hasard" by Stéphane Mallarmé, Raffaella della Olga built a layered practice with no linear trajectory in which daily language is translated into sensitive abstraction. Typewriting, collage, performance and installations are her preferred mediums to date.
