NUNZIANTE ANTONIO
Antonio Nunziante (Naples 1956) spent his adolescence in Turin because his family had moved in 1961. Very important was the presence of a family friend who teaches him the main painting techniques, while doing an apprenticeship at the workshop of his father. In 1975, after the artistic maturity in Asti, he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in the same city, which he attended for two years.
Back in Turin, he attended courses at the Academy free of the nude figure and then he followed a specialized course on the techniques of restoration in Florence. It is on that occasion that he was able to master the secrets of ancient artistic techniques directly from the Florentine master craftsmen. The phrase that sums up that period of training that reminds the artist is: "What i teach you are gestures ancients".
Here is the rest, in the land of Leonardo and Michelangelo, his artistic sensibilities are formed on the example of Renaissance masterpieces. He travels in France, Spain and England enriching his experience, bringing him in contact with the work of great masters such as Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso and Arnold Böcklin. Stylistically to the first he approaches the beginning of his career, fascinating by the theories of art and life of the painter from Málaga. While the precursor of metaphysics remains a constant reference in his path, the subject of detailed studies over time will become the metaphysics of Giorgio De Chirico, whose values both theoretical formulations that the translation of these on canvas. His references, however, ranging from the philosophical to the art world, in which Nunziante tell you to find constant inspiration, especially in works of the two most significant writers of modern times, Arthur Schopenhauer and Friedrich Nietzsche.
The 1975 is the year of the commencement of his exhibitions, with the participation substantiated, for example, in Piedmont, frequent collective exhibitions among which stand out those organized in three exhibitions at the Turin Magi Mawa Gallery (where he also shows in 1977), the Hall De Anderč Art Gallery and Le Pleiadi. The first one, the next year, is hosted by the Corvo Blu Gallery in Giaveno (Torino). In 1983 he was able to make himself known to American audiences, exposing at Los Angeles Artexpo and New York. From this experience we had the works that will be exhibited the following year at the gallery GAP of Alexandria and the Fidia gallery of Turin and in 1985 at Villa Comunale la Favorita in Giaveno. Between 1986 and 1990 he took part in three Biennale of Bergamo without sacrificing both collective and personal exhibitions in Turin, which has become his adopted homeland (Galleria dell'Accademia di Giaveno), and the rest of the peninsula (Annigoni a Spello, Galleria il Conventino and centro culturale Sant'Alessandro di Bergamo).
The natural inclination towards painting to achieve him a good early market success and he had to work hard to gain recognition from the critics.
His participation in group exhibitions in Tokyo (1990) and at New York Artexpo (1991) is a further step towards the success of his painting more than ever linked to a time-bound artistic perceived fixity that never reaches effects of alienation, and love objects: shells and tools of the trade. The use of colors and burnished honeyed tones reminiscent of the fall season that turns to winter, the same used for the night show one night and a morning and fleeing presses. When he back in Italy, after taking part in the Fourth Biennial of Bergamo, a solo exhibition opens in Florence with great success.
In the summer of 1992 he begins the fruitful relationship that will last five years, interspersed with Renzo Spagnoli participation in the Festival of Due Mondi in Spoleto. The nineties were marked by the encounter with the merchant Aldo Labrecciosa to become one of his most faithful witnesses and new that makes it sensitive to cultural issues. Probably as a result of this union was born in Antonio Nunziante the desire to experiment in new fields, directing his interest in archaeological sculptures and bas-reliefs, saying an innovative classical perfection of form. The return to a tradition, and never abandoned the great sensitivity approach to the daily events that led him to revisit and update the works which Christ Rembrandt, the masterpiece was noticed during a visit to the Sabauda Gallery and the immediate realization came after witnessing a scene of violence involving the division of a mother from her child. In his study of the Piedmont hills he continues the artistic research with the intent to make available to the general public on his painting. As he says: "I would be willing to explain the dynamic that leads me to make a picture".
From 1997 he works exclusively with Orler Gallery in Mestre, Madonna di Campiglio and Abano Terme. He lives and works in Giaveno (Torino).
