Welcome to Rita Bolla Artist Page. We are here to change the World one artwork at the time.
Did you hear the news? Rita’s book The Story of How I Found You is coming out! A picture book for pre- & teens and all about inspiration, every day heroes, connection and just about being human. Stay tuned for release date!
“This book is about people. The great ones. The ones who inspire. Who imprint themselves so deeply that the very idea of “you” and what you are capable of is radically transformed. These people need not be celebrities or world leaders. In fact, the people who truly make us come alive rarely ever are. More often than not, they seem on the surface like ordinary, everyday people. Sometimes we recognize their heroic grace at once. Sometimes only many years on. No matter how or when it happens, when the circumstance is ripe, these people will find you and lift you, even when you feel you have nothing to offer. They are out there. Never doubt this. And as you meet each of them, one-by-one, you will come to more fully recognize yourself in them and the value of the path you walk.” – CF Lapinel, writer & editor
Rita Bolla: Becoming Human. Works between 2014 to 2018.
“I call this phase Becoming Human. Starting with Transitions through The Vegan Project to The Book of Persistence. It is a collection of figurative oil-on-canvas artworks and watercolor paintings. They represent the fluidity of life — our transitions from birth to child and adulthood to death — and how we’re always becoming ourselves. They represent the cycle of our becoming animals, becoming conscious souls, and becoming humans.”
Peace and Light,
Rita Bolla Art Team
