Veronica Green (b. 1984, Wellington, New Zealand) is a painter of Italian and Polish descent, currently living and working in Venice, Italy. She is recognised for her mastery of phosphorescent paint and double scene paintings revealed under Ultraviolet light.

Green studied at Massey University, Wellington and graduated in 2006 with a BFA (HONS). Since graduating Green has exhibited extensively in both solo and group shows as well as national and international art fairs.

In 2008 Green received an artist in residency at Spiazzi Gallery, Venice and was subsequently represented by Melori and Rosenburg Art Gallery, Venice. During this time Green explored themes around religion, symbolism and mythology inspired by her culturally rich heritage.

From 2009-2012, Green was represented exclusively by Movimento Arte Contemporanea Gallery, Milan, exhibiting in national solo exhibitions and group shows as well as major art fairs including MiArt and ArtVerona. During this time, Green began exploring new subject matter.

It was at this point in her career that Green commenced experimentations with phosphorescent paint combined with an investigation of the notion of duality manifested in her signature double scene paintings, and culminating in the solo exhibition, “L’Era delle Stelle” at Ego Gallery, Lugano in 2013.  This was the first time Green exhibited her phosphorescent paintings under Ultraviolet light. 

In 2015 Green held an Artist in Residence at 30 Upstairs Gallery, Wellington, with her exhibition “The Light is my Shadow.” In 2016 Green joined the stable of Van Rensburg Galleries, undertaking solo and group exhibitions in New York and Hong Kong, alongside a variety of international art fairs. Since then, Green has honed and developed her use of humour and positivity to explore the conflict within the freedom and identity of the “inner child”. 2020 saw Green’s practice evolve further with the exploration of a complex triple scene painting technique initiated during her Artist in Residence at the Chateau d’Orquevaux,
