Maurizio Cannavacciuolo (born in 1954 in Naples) lives and works in Rome. In the '70s he left his architectural studies unfinished and began his work as a self-taught artist making his first artistic experiences with the gallery of Lucio Amelio. Since then he has been active on the international art scene. His iconographic and conceptual research navigates between horror vacui and theater humor of the absurd, preferring images often at the limit of calligraphy and concepts capable of self-dissolving. An ironic vision of art and life that, however, never ceases to be profound, reaching the roots of our culture and spiritual guiding us towards meditation, all made usable by a pictorial style steeped in the Mediterranean tradition and with Middle Eastern influences. Since the late '80s he makes frequent trips mainly in Southeast Asia and the Americas. 


 

He exhibits in private galleries and international public institutions including the Studio Guenzani in Milan, Sperone Westwater in New York, the Fundacion Ludwig de Cuba in Havana, Asprey - Jacques and Sprovieri in London, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo in Santiago de Chile, the Museu da Republica, Galeria Catete in Rio de Janeiro and the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead. Solo exhibitions include: Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston (2016); Allegra Ravizza Art Project, Milan (2010); Sprovieri Progetti, London (2009); Spazio Millesimato, Montalcino (Siena) (2006); Pescali & Sprovieri Gallery, London (2006); Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead (2005); Suzy Shammah, Milan (2004); Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston (2004); Edicola Notte, Rome (2003); Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, Santiago de Chile (2003); Museu da Repubblica-Galeria Catete, Rio de Janeiro (2002); Franco Noero, Turin (2001); Francesca Kaufmann, Milan (2001); Cardi, Milan (2000). It is also present in the collections of the Farnesina, the Chamber of Deputies in Rome and in the station "Cilea - Quattro Giornate" of the Naples Metro.
