Angela Yvonne Davis (born January 26, 1944) is an American communist political activist, academic, and author. She emerged as a prominent counterculture activist in the 1960s working with the communist Party USA of which she was a member until 1991, and was involved in the Black Panther Party during the Civil Right Movement.

Originally from Italy, Raffaella received her diploma in Art from the Liceo Artistico Arturo Martini in Savona. Her main influences are derived from popular and urban culture, fashion, art, music and literature, along with environmental and political issues. In her portraiture, she blends a (literally!) colourful humour with Psychedelic Art to create her own brand of “Psychedelic Pop Art”, focusing primarily on the female figure. A large number of her “Icons” portraits use alcohol ink. In these works, she celebrates not only the famous but also hidden heroes, such as members of the London Underground scene, unearthed in her recent artwork.
