1976 La Spezia, Italy

Claudio Caporaso was born in 1976 in La Spezia.

After his studies, his passion for the sea and for the multifaceted nature of materials brought him closer to shipbuilding, where he worked as a boat interior fitter, later being appointed shipwright. This experience led to a passion for sculpture, which initially saw wood as the main material of creation. Later, terracotta, marble and bronze also characterize his perennial search for a plastic and lyrical sense with ancestral connotations.

At the center of his work is the female figure, investigated according to a transfiguration that on the one hand mythicizes it, attributing spiritual connotations to it, and on the other enhances its humanity, bringing it drastically back to the crudeness of the world; in a synthesis between the rational mimetic rendering and the irrational power of the inner self of his subjects, Caporaso unites together the beautiful and the tragic, generating the cathartic portrait of contemporary man.

In recent times he moved to Milan and consolidated his language through a growing numberof both group and solo exhibitions in Italy and abroad. He also ventures into public works and large-scale monuments placed in the cities of Deiva Marina (SP), Brugnato (SP), La Spezia and Cusago (MI).

Multiple influential critics have covered his work.
