Carlotta Schiavio aka YaTii Talisman was born in Italy and raised in Ethiopia. Her background is a mixture of different cultures (Italian, Russian, Syrian, Austrian and Ethiopian).
She started her creative career in the arts as a jewelry designer and then transitioned to painting in 1998.
Her work has been shown around the world and is now in permanent exhibition at the new National Library “Abrehot” (Abrehot means enlightenment in the Amharic language) inaugurated in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in January 2022.
She has recently become a full-time artist.
Her latest creation is "The Bugibatuki", a being from her planet YaTii where everything is harmonious. The Bugibatukis resolve any issue in a positive manner without asking questions!
In the beginning, she experimented with different techniques and mediums, guided by her feelings and thus, a series of paintings were born.
