Gianmario Sannicola was born on 19 February, 1977. Always fascinated by art in all its forms, he soon developed a strong predisposition for painting and photography . After the first rudimentary approaches, his artistic path began in 2002 with various participations in group exhibitions in the art circuit of Modena, where he still lives and works. His work does not arise from canonical studies but is the result of a gradual development of his interest beyond that of admiration and love towards all those artists (especially Caravaggio, Monet, Klimt, Mirò, Picasso, Warhol, Rothko, Pollok, Lichtenstein who over the years as well as the centuries have been able to communicate to the world the immortal messages and emotions.
In Gianmario Sannicola’s works and composition it stands out the desire to highlight the impact that the colours and the strokes have on the white on the canvas.
The human figure and in this case the human faces are therefore deprived of most of their distinguishing characteristics until arriving to processing of the most elementary characteristic – the nose, the eyes and the mouth.
Today the attention of Sannicola is paid to the experimentation of materials and colours to accentuate the visual impact.
