Irene Tamagnone was born in Genoa in 1986. Bioengineer by training, from an early age she has been interested in the knowledge of the human body and in the mistery of life. Increasingly interested in the functioning of the brain, she continued her studies obtaining a doctorate in 2015 on the mechanisms of motor learning. After her doctorate, she worked at the Italian Institute of Technology IIT in the Rehab Technologies department which develops robotic devices for motor rehabilitation. Over time she discovered that the world of robotics and algorithms did not satisfy her and decided to undertake artistic studies to continue her research with a different language. For five years she attended the Arteincampo art school in Genoa where she learned the main techniques. Here she rediscovered the love for the representation of the body and its expressive ability. In 2018 she continued her education by enrolling in the Nude School of the Ligustica Academy of Fine Arts in Genoa. She immediately found watercolor to be her most congenial and evocative technique.
