My name is Raffaele Muraca. I'm a Visual Artist and Facilitator, with work experience in Prop and Float-Making, Set Dressing and Painting, and Mural Art.
ArtConnections is born out of a combination of my education, training, and experience.
I have studied Fine Art at Brera Art Academy in Milano and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Education Sciences. The beginning of my career has been based on social activities characterized by my artistic tendencies. For several years I worked in Italy as an Educator with teenage refugees, part of my duty was to organize cultural events and social activities bridging cultures and establish integration using art as a medium.
In 2014 I moved to Ireland to work with a local Outreach program that works in partnership with the community in Cork city, holding prop-making workshops, performing and making floats for Irish parades.
My curiosity for the different aspects of making art led me to work also as Propmaker and Scenic Artist for sets and video/photo shootings.
