Rabarama, pseudonym of Paola Epifani, (born August 22, 1969) is an Italian contemporary artist.[1]

Artistic practice[edit]

Rabarama creates sculptures and paintings of men, women and hybrid creatures, often in eccentric poses.[2][3] The skins of her subjects are always decorated with patterns, symbols, letters, glyphs and other kind of figures, in a great variety of forms.[4]

Rabarama monumental sculptures have been exhibited in many public spaces[5]
