Ylenia Pizzetti was born in Cremona on July 21, 1988. Since childhood she has always shown great interest in fashion, for freehand drawing and writing. What she loved as a child was to draw fashion sketches. After finishing her studies as a graphic designer, she devoted herself for several years to various works, leaving aside her passions for a while. Only a few years ago, in 2014, she finally picked up the old writings and reworked them, thus creating his first story published in the online bookstores "Di che colore è il cielo?". Subsequently "Fiore di Luna" was born in a few months.
In the winter of 2014, Ylenia also changed hands to her fashion figures evolving into the digital age. Create many digital works thanks to the use of her inseparable IPad. Ylenia loves to experiment with different techniques and genres. In some works the reference to surrealism is evident.
In recent years Ylenia has created works of various kinds experimenting in addition to digital art, photography, abstract acrylic techniques, flowers painted with mixed techniques, seams on canvas and sculptures of busts painted with acrylics and the use of gold leaf.
In early 2020 her work "Heart" was sold in the United States becoming the cover of a new single by an American band. In her works, meanings of love and emotions are often found with the hope of reaching the depths of those who observe them.
Ė Clay is a character invented during a conversation among five friends and inspired by the Eddie Murphy movie "Coming to America." Clay stands for everything that is positive and beautiful. "Everyone always asks us who Clay is, but Clay is not a person. Clay is freedom, purity and pure fun. It's a state of mind... Clay is in all of you. It flies like a butterfly and stings like a bee!"
The Ė Clay association was founded in Alassio in 2013 and began raising funds for the pediatric hospital Giannino Gaslini in Genoa for its "Hospitality Project". Funds are raised thanks to various initiatives and support from numerous athletes who donate autographed memorabilia, which is then auctioned.
