“The act of creation set us free from the past and from the future, allowing us to be in the Moment.”
Thelli – Helenia Tedesco
Born in Bari, she moved to Milan at the age of seven. Since childhood she has displayed a natural talent for drawing and painting inherited from her father, a painter and poet. While growing up, she decided to dedicate herself to other activities and she obtained her degree in public relations, while continuing to paint in her free time. Graduated in Public Relations – Science of Communications, at IULM University, she worked for ten years in the world of communication, at the Del Monte & Partner Comunicazione, Milan. The year 2012 marked the start of a new direction, when Thelli (Helenia’s artistic pseudonym) began to paint on T-shirts with the goal of making wearable art and having it move around the world together with the people wearing it.
This was the birth of AIM, Thelli’s Art In Movement.In the same year, she opened an on-line shop on Etsy.com, the American platform for handmade goods. In 2013, after a fall from a horse that kept her in bed for 3 months, Thelli decided to leave her job in communication and set out with her son and her partner to Gran Canaria, with the goal of dedicating herself completely to art and creativity. For Thelli, the creative act becomes a ritual of initiation, the experience of death in life in order to reawaken in movement, in the continuous flow of creation. Thelli’s Art In Movement also continues on canvas, where the horse, with which she begins a journey of spiritual growth, is painted red to represent the unstoppable instinct of movement, of life, and of self-knowledge. This is the start of a new adventure for Thelli and Art In Movement.
In 2016 she started studying superfoods like Moringa, Spirulina and Maca to help boosting the energy levels of body and minds and founded a company called MoringaON with her husband. In order focus on this new activity she stopped painting for a while.
Later during the “lockdown” period she started meditating a lot, reading books about the Holy Grail, the Rosicrucian history, the Hermeticism, The Antroposophy, discovering the Philosophy of the Ancient Greek, studying new paintings techniques, falling in love with the “alla prima” oil painting. Finally she restarted taking the brushes and her inner Guide push her to become a brush of the Spirit trying to paint realistic portraits, practicing with alla prima technique with mystic subjects and studying the faces painted by the great painters in history.
In 2023 she joined the art association Gruppo Sirio Milano, founded in 1969.
