Art Brokerage: Redina Tili Albanian Artist: b.1970. Redina Tili is an International Artist with over 25 years of experience in art and design. She displayed an interest in drawing and watercolor painting at a very early age. In her teenage years, she created and sold her own art at her uncle's art studio, who was an established artist at the time. At the age of 14, she enrolled in a four-year plan of study for Drawing, Painting and Sculpture at the Art College of Tirana, with an emphasis in Classical Fine Arts. In the pursuit of her dream to become a professional artist, Redina enrolled in a four-year university program receiving the BFA degree from the Fine Art Academy of Tirana, and in 1999 was bestowed the same degree from the University of Toronto. Redina fell in love with Canada and the radiant fall colors, which sparked her interest in nature photography. She built an extensive library of photographs that serve as inspiration and reference for her paintings. Most of her pieces are based on those photos and enriched by multiple treatments of textures and layers to transform a simple scene into color and passion. The vibrant style and delicate sensitivity of her new collection "Awakening" is an impressive fresh view at nature, a surreal treatment of what we see, and a transformation of our world to a dream of patterns, shapes and colors that uplift feelings and inspire the soul.
