Etsy Shop Feature: Boretto Art

One of the best things of selling on Etsy is that it gives you the chance to discover so many extraordinary shops! I have decided to feature one of my favourite shops every now and then on this blog, and today the very first one is Sydney-based Boretto Art. I love their colourful artworks - they remind me of one of my favourite artists, Raoul Dufy. I interviewed L&S from Boretto Art and here are their answers!

Who is behind Boretto Art?
An artist in love with color (S) and an Italian dreamer in love with art (L).
Together we are a happy young couple who live of their passion in the land of kangaroos and koalas.

Tell us about your work process
We like to imagine our artworks as a jungle were the viewer can easily get lost and dream.
Each of our artwork is a wordless poem of love.

S: Our original paintings are created with vibrant acrylic colours and a palette knife. This technique allows me to give a beautiful texture to my paintings and to transfer almost instantanly my emotions to the canvas.

L: I spend hours looking for the perfect image for my original collages.
Every piece of paper has to tell me a story, have something special.
I love creating beautiful and unique miniatures.

What makes us really happy is sharing our artwork with others.
Because at the end of the day, what is art if not sharing?


Where do you get your ideas from?
Most of our art is inspired by our daily life (Manly Beach painting), our surroundings (Blu Opera House print), our dreams (Rooster collage), our travels (Paris painting).

Apart from creating things, what do you do?
We love food! We love cooking, trying new recipes and surprising each other with new flavours.
But also travelling, discovering new cultures, getting lost in small streets, fishing with old fishermen, smelling new perfumes...
But our one and true passion is creating art.
