Massimo Angèi was born in 1962 in La Spezia, though he has lived and worked in Sarzana for some time now. By Art school (specialized high school) he had already been collaborating with various institutions and museums performing naturalistic illustrations of flora and fauna. After finishing his degree at the Fine Arts Academy in Carrara he participated in both the fist exhibitions and the creation of the Idioma group along with Marco Casentini, Fabio Maria Linari, Jacopo Bruno and Andrea Geremia. To support himself financially, he began to work as an independent, freelance photographer in the publishing industry. He worked for Grazia Neri in Milan and is the only Italian photographer admitted to Bilderberg photography agency out of Hamburg, publishing his images in both Italian and International magazines. He also had important collaboration with J.Holtzman, the founder of NEST, a New York quarterly magazine which mainly features nontraditional interior design. He continued photographing until the spring of 2006. The evening 4th of April changed everything. While in a disturbed slumber, an overwhelming and impetuous desire to paint, slipping between his thoughts and dreams, returned like a jealous lover ready to take back what belongs to her. That day, Massimo found more than his case of old oil paints, he found his life again knowing that he could never again turn his back on such an evident display of destiny.
