Daniela Puliti studied painting at Montclair State University (BFA, 2011) and The Savannah College of Art and Design (MFA, 2015). Puliti manipulates craft-based materials with an intuitive painter's sensibility. She has participated in short term residencies at The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (NYC), Vermont Studio Center, The Wassaic Project and ChaNorth. Puliti is an alumna of the A.I.R. Gallery Fellowship Program in Brooklyn, NY (2017-2018), which granted her first solo exhibition in NYC in February 2018. Her next solo exhibition is slated to take place at Real Art Ways in Hartford, CT (2021).
Activism has become a growing aspect in her work, as she has engaged in a number of performance protests garnering the attention of Hyperallergic and Artnet News. Daniela Puliti is an advocate for destigmatizing mental health, fat acceptance, and proudly proclaims herself a strident feminist. She leads workshops sharing her knowledge of knitting and crochet, encouraging craft as an emotional survival skill and coping mechanism for anxiety and depression. Daniela Puliti was awarded a 2021 Individual Artist Fellowship from the New Jersey Council on the Arts.
