Daniela Astone (b.1980, Pisa) grew upon in the sea-town of PortoSanto Stefano, Italy, and formally began studying art at the age of 14 in the High School of Arts in Grosseto.
After graduating in 1998 she moved to Florence to study Illustration at the International School of Comix. In her second year she started to work independently for several editors and in the studio of illustration, Inklink.
At the age of 21, Daniela decided to change direction and to re-start studying drawing and painting from life at The Florence Academy of Art under the direction of Daniel Graves.
She began to teach to the younger students in the Academy when she was in her second year. She graduated in 2004 with the end of the year award, but she continued to work as a principal teacher for the Florence Academy of art.
In 2005, she had her first and very successful Solo show at the Ann Long Fine Art Gallery in Charleston, so she decided to build up a studio in the Tuscany countryside.
In 2013, Daniela became the director of the intermediate program at The Florence Academy of Art, entered in the BP award in London and recived a honorable mention from the Mod Portrait award, Spain.
Her work has been exhibited internationally, and in 2016 it became part of the permanent collection of MACS, the Contemporary Art Museum in Sicily.
She also collaborated with Tiac, China, with Liveandlearn, Thailand, with Streamline, East Oaks Studio and teaches workshops of landscape painting in her studio-house in Chianti Tuscany and around the world.
In 2019, together with Gaia Grazioli, she curated the show “Corpo a Corpo” in the Museum of Villa Bardini in Florence, thanks to Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze and Carlo Sisi.
