Federico Severino (Milan, 1990). In 2002 he moved to Catania. In 2013 he obtains a degree in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts and Restoration 'Abadir' (CT). After a residency period in Berlin, he returned to Catania and in September 2016 he completed his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts of Catania with the degree Laurea di II livello in Painting. He participates in numerous awards. In 2011 he is a finalist in the National Arts Prize, Brera (MI). In 2014 he is a finalist and winner of the Nocivelli Prize, in the painting section.

In 2016 he exhibits at the Puglisi Cosentino Foundation in Catania on the occasion of Pre-Visioni II. Also in the same year, he took second place in the 2nd edition of the FAM Giovani Prize for Visual Arts (AG). In 2017 he is a finalist in the Combat Prize painting section.
In 2018 he exhibits at the literary café at the Palazzo della Cultura in Catania "(s/t + i/m) x generations" curated by Giuseppe Frazzetto. In July he is invited to the first edition of the Contemporary Art Festival "Venti Contemporanei" in Cereggio (RE). He is a finalist for the ContemporaneaMENTI Prize at the Fondazione L'Arsenale, Iseo (BS). He is a finalist for the Fondazione San Fedele award (MI).
He lives and works between Catania and Turin.

His is a search for new intimate visions of 'landscape'. Landscape understood as place and part of lived experience. In a first phase it is nature that inspires him. More recently another need has surfaced in his research, that of confronting urban landscapes. They, on the whole, are mental and experiential projections.
I paint images that gradually dissolve and lose their boundaries, become open spaces, contemplative environments. Large and small monochromatic surfaces mutate to become velvety fields of color through the use of oil pastel.
