Vali & Gianni

To Gianni Menichetti, Vali Myers’ long-time lover and keeper of her wild hidden abode, Vali was the ‘Queen of the Valley’. We know Vali Myers as the charismatic, exotic outsider artist, holding court while lounging on rugs and cushions on the floor of her studio in Melbourne’s Nicholas Building. Gianni fell under her spell when, as a youth, he met her in Italy in 1971 and immediately felt that her blood was in his veins. ‘She had the magic to turn dirt into gold, like a real alchemist’, he recounted.
