Afunneled route from the magnificent palazzi in Sicily to her ancestral futuristic cave-like apartment in Milan, the exquisite diversity of the Kenyan landscape to a levitating office over Panama City, all leading to the roots of a desire tree in New York City.
“It was destiny,” Tiziana Serretta says: “A rare tango, a spontaneous coupling between what is transpiring and who you are, in the ever-changing moment”.
Highly-recognized museum and gallery curator, uncompromising collector of art, fashion and experiences, Tiziana, as a modern renaissance personality, reveals creations of distinctive substance, beginning with her own life experience. On September 10th, 2015, eager to share her lifelong quest for fine art and fashion, she launches the TS World in New York, summoning artists and select invitees from around the world to experience a startling creative interaction of concept, expression and style.
“Art and fashion is a way of life. It is an integral part of everyday life, and certainly not detached from us,” she says.
Serretta works all over the world, where she gets her inspiration as well. “There is never one answer and the answer always changes.” She lived in Kenya for 20 years and traveled extensively to Asia. She is known for many overwhelming concepts and she is in a constant challenge with herself. “The only way to truly understand who you really are and unlock your full potential is to face as many challenges as possible,” she says.
Serretta’s most recent venture was launched in 2013. It is a Panama-based company, which aims to spread worldwide the culture of Latin America, through unique events and partnerships with emerging international artists and designers, in collaboration with cultural institutions and museumsa.
“I was invited for the Cine Panama,” she says. “I felt the energy of the city. It grows every day like moss. I felt this is ‘the place’. Panama people live every day like it is their last day.” In the city, she can see parts of herself. “Panama city is there. It is not asking you to like it. You just like it or not. Likewise, I do nothing for people to like me.”
Tiziana loves Latin American artists. “They are natural. They have great energy. They are so talented and artistic and they do nothing to accomplice it.” Serretta is enamored by the uncontaminated culture of the indigenous Kuna from Colombia and the San Blas Archipelago in Panama. She works with Kuna artists and craftsmen on different projects, blending local art and their ancestral knowledge about life and cosmos with European sophistication
