Not far from Bosa in Sardinia lies the tiny village of Tinnura in Oristano province. Tinnura is famous for its art as it village walls are painted in beautiful murals by the artist Pina Morran.

Pina Morran is an Italian contemporary artist who was born in the early 1980s. She is known for her unique and distinctive style that blends elements of Pop Art, Surrealism, and Abstract Expressionism. Her works are characterised by bold colours, bold lines, and dynamic compositions that often feature human figures, animals, and everyday objects in unexpected and surreal settings.

Morran’s early influences include the works of Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, and Giorgio de Chirico. These artists inspired her to create works that are playful, thought-provoking, and full of meaning. Her love of vibrant colour and bold lines is evident in her works, and she often uses these elements to create a sense of movement and energy in her compositions.

“Tinnura,” was created in the early 2000s. Tinnura was once a thriving city with a rich cultural heritage, but over time it became abandoned and forgotten. Morran’s “Tinnura” paintings are a tribute to this lost city and its forgotten past.

Morran combines elements of the city’s ancient architecture and culture with elements of modern urban life to create a surreal and dreamlike world. One of the most striking features of Morran’s “Tinnura” series is the use of vibrant colours. She often uses bright, neon colours to create a sense of excitement and energy in her compositions. These colours are a nod to the city’s ancient heritage, as they were used in ancient Sardinian mosaics and textiles. In addition to their visual impact, the bright colours also serve to evoke emotions and create a sense of joy and happiness.

Morran’s works are also characterised by their strong, graphic lines that define the shapes and forms in her compositions. These lines give her works a sense of energy and they also serve to create a sense of depth and three-dimensionality.

The compositions in Morran’s “Tinnura” series are also notable for their playful and whimsical nature. In addition to the “Tinnura” paintings, Morran has also created other works that are inspired by her travels and the cultures she has encountered. These works often feature elements of local architecture, folk art, and cultural symbols.

Unlike the political murals of for example, Orgosolo, Pina’s painting are of everyday traditional rural life in Sardinia over the past 100 years or so. They depict Sardinians going about their business raising sheep, growing fruit and vegetables and tending vineyards. Tinnura is close to where they make the famous Sardinian wine Malvasia di Bosa, so wine is part of the local economy.

You can see in the picture below the famous “Sartiglia” and the local Asphodel Baskets along with other Sardinian traditions and products. The baskets are made in both Tinnura and Flusion using the leaves of the asphodel plant which grows well in this area. The whole region is perfect for cultivating crops and was inhabited by the Romans. Although it has been inhabited since the Prehistoric Age as you can see with the  presence of menhirs, the Tres Bias Nuraghe and the Su Crastu Covocadu ‘giants’ tomb’.

Most of the murals photographed here in Tinnura were produced by artist Pina Monne. However, the tradition of painting murals in Sardinia started around 1968 in the town of San Sperate. Tinnura’s history of murals began in the  early 2000s.
