Paola Cassais

Art of Hearts

With a strong belief in the power of art to confront and transform issues, Paola’s commitment to the environment and communities influences her artwork: creating beautiful landscapes and populations, reduced down into pure colours, shapes and impasto figures.


New Artworks


A trend-setter who dares to venture in to different themes to add variety for collectors, artist, Paola Cassais has brought to light some prominent movements that are occurring at this present second, although recreated in her heart-felt approach and encouragement of friendship and community. These three new pieces titled, 'Better Together', 'In Perfect Harmony' and 'Never Forget' bestow Paola's take on the ideology to respond to mass-challenges, with love coming out on top, every-time.

'Better Together' is one of Paola's acrylic on canvas pieces where the title is as powerful a message as the intricate details of her tiny subjects taking the form of a mighty heart. On this occasion, given the provocations that we are experiencing where we will all come out even stronger on the other side, the Italian-born artist felt it was more than necessary to recreate her heart with bolder emphasis - a sturdier shape to showcase our collective strength.

'In Perfect Harmony' follows on from Paola's 'Better Together' key message of strength and solidarity to now, showcase a world's mindset found to be completely in sync. With triumph, comes an understanding of your companion's affairs, a tune in to the way they are feeling and a vision that will eventually be coincided. Paola's message is clear, through understanding comes an unstoppable force of love and companionship.

Sold out

'Never Forget' derives from the core theme that artist Paola usefully recreates with every acrylic-painted original. The theme comprises of the greater acknowledgement for what a band of brave humans had done in order to promote a world of fellowship in the years to come. As the detailed figures line up in the shape of the famous poppy, Cassais incorporates a sharp balance of red to green to showcase a bold statement of collective intent.


An Inspirational Upbringing


Self taught, with the encouragement of an artistic family, Tuscan painter Paola Cassais began her career as an interior designer and window-dresser: her formative year inspired by Italian design as well as the beautiful scenery of her native Florence. The paintings of Paola Cassias bring memories of sun drenched holidays spent on the coast from dawn until dusk; her troupe of multi-coloured beach-goers cast long shadows on the sand.

Raised amongst the great museums, breath-taking scenery and world-class fashion of this city: artist Paola Cassais began her career as an interior designer and window-dresser, developing her keen eye for the expressive qualities of colour, texture and shape. Encouraged by her parents (also artists), Paola painted in her spare time at every opportunity, enjoying the freewheeling bohemian lifestyle of a vibrant community of painters.

This sense of belonging and extended family was a huge influence on Paola. As well as instilling in her a fierce belief in the power of communities and groups to effect change: it also led to her becoming an exponent in an artistic movement: Figurative Informalism. The free use of real-life subjects (as opposed to abstract motifs) for expressive purposes.


Paola Cassais - Spaces of Solitude


Her approach is simple and elegant: meticulously detailed sand and water create a dazzling backdrop for her crowds of figures: joyous, impasto shapes of pure colour; literally popping against the canvas. The bright, slightly naïve nature of these characters belie a spectacular attention to detail, the figures employed in a remarkable variety of activities from dog-walking to cycling to paragliding. Like every nostalgic beach holiday the viewer has ever had; filling the frame with an irresistible sense of energy and movement.

During her formative painting years in the 1990’s; Paola became acutely aware of issues facing the environment and the role of local communities to play a part in the wider social/political arena. This began to further evolve her art as she began to depict landscapes and crowd scenes – thus beginning the famous beach scenes that have made her sought after today: the ‘spaces of solitude’ series.

Sold out

A linked interest in urban spaces and an increasing love for abstraction has led to Paola’s latest collection – the Heart series. In these paintings, the beach landscape is eschewed in favour of a neutral canvas; allowing the vibrant colours of the painted figures to contrast vividly. Paola’s trademark crowd scenes gather in a variety of heart shapes to celebrate her omnipresent themes of community, support and togetherness.
