Angelo ACCARDI
  • biography
Angelo Accardi was born in Sapri, a small town in the south of Italy, about 400km. south of Rome. In the course of his artistic development he has been pursuing a constant search after new sensations. His debut on the artistic scene was strongly characterized by what in Italian Art is referred to as “figura”, a representation of the human body, as well as by pictorial and symbolic art. A short interval at the Art Academy of Naples marks the beginning of an identity crisis that will go on for a few years, and in this period his work evolves toward the abstract. In the beginning of the nineties Accardi sets up his personal studio at Sapri and embarks on his pursuit of depicting figures against a social background; in the same period he exhibits in prestigeous galleries in Italy and abroad, such as Rossetti and Pini in Rome, the Manzoni Art Studio of Milan and the Klaus Lea Gallery of Munich. The cycle of works called “Human Collection” depicting on attenuated atmosphere suggesting the softness of cotton wool - where the figures are masterfully veiled as if by a sheath of moistness - marks a fondamental passage in his artistic development. The works of this cycle were initially exhibited in Vancouver. This exhibition then led to a five year collaboration with the Korean gallerist, Robert Kwon. In 2001 he launched his association with three prestigeous galleries: Verrengia of Salerno, Spazio Arte at Rovereto and Battaglia of Milan, followed by personal and (collective) group exhibitions, such as “Speed Generation” and “Vicious”, which will give Accardi access to more appealing, stimulating artistic environments. In this scenario he meets up with the florentine gallerist Giovannini, promoter of the travelling exhibition “Enjoy the Silence”. Consequently, fifteen of his canvasses have been exhibited in Florence, Innsbruck, Barcellona, and Budapest. With the new avant-garde group “Tantarte” he partecipates at the “Galleria Italia” in Shanghai in 2006. Since 2007 he has been working with the “Miniaci Art Gallery Milano” led by Antonio Miniaci. In 2008 he begins a collaboration with Guido Migheli, a promoter of significant artistic initiatives in South Italy. In the same year the group “Petit Prince” begins to distribute his works in Italy and abroad, and the year 2009 marks the beginning of relations with “Arte Ferraro” of Rome and with the gallerist Raimonda Z. Bongiovanni of Bologna, who care for Accardi, several personal and collectives. 2011 is the year in which the art historian Marco Vallora, select him for the 54th Venice Biennale. Later he began working with the "Galleria Il Novecento" of Salerno, "Simon Bart" of Porto Cervo and "Gallery Percapita" Carpi. The collaboration between the artist and the Nuovospazio Arte Contemporanea Gallery begins in 2015. Today his works are treated by international galleries.
