Davide Cicolani was born in Rome on July 8 1978. His childhood is quite difficult. At the age of six he was struck by lightning. The following year, due to nephritis, he was hospitalized for six months. During his long hospital stay he begins to draw. At 18, after graduating as a surveyor, he began working at night as a factory worker. Thus, during the day, he can devote himself entirely to art. A free spirit. After 10 years he resigned and moved to Paris, where he continued to paint, moving from one squat house to another. In 2016, life in the French capital began to hold him tight and he returned to Italy, preferring a life in the countryside, more in contact with nature. A caravan in Circeo as home. Cicolani prefers recycled materials such as road maps, project drawings and old accounting records. Or recycled paper. The important thing is that the sheets cam be folded so they do not take up too muche space and they are easily transportable. On these supports already loaded with memory, the artist superimposes arabesques of Indian ink, powerful graphic stylistic features and dreamlike and disturbing figures, sometimes realized with inlays of color similar to those of the ancient stained glass windows. Traces, weaves, portraits, his works have great graphic power. Nomadic activity as its protagonist.
