VITO STRAMAGLIA

Vito Stramaglia is an Italian painter. Even if Vito has received a training in order to become a painter, strangely he has developed a “love and hate” relationship with the paint. At some point in his adolescence this “special” relationship led him to prefer the way of competitive sports, becoming professional boxer. When he was seriously thinking about an athletic career, he received a strong impulse to paint and  complete his art studies.  Vito intensively studied the great masters of the past and and through the avant-gardes and next currents of artistic experimentation, thanks to its constant curiosity about the spiritual world, comes to his personal vision of life, inspired by quantum physics, and to the illusion of the existence form, translating it with his painting. In his paintings the form is crushed until it is lost in the “ALL”, making the subject a pretext preferring through excessive pictorial material, the informal technical.
