Gianmaria Giannetti

Gianmaria Giannetti is graduated in aesthetic philosophy and his imaginary worlds and two-dimensionaluniverses come directly from his singular mind.
Born in Milan in 1974,
he lives and works between Bari and Finale Ligure. Experimental artist, he uses a very personal mixture of various languages ​​in new ways of expression, creating parallel universes, alternative escape routes to the normal logic of things.
Through a series of symbols and signs, with a new ironic and limitless rigor as a child’s dream, he uses writing to enrich and minimize the message of his work, to take us beyond the reality of stereotypes and find a freedom through art.
Little figurines definitely less anthropomorphic
, a painting maze trying to escape inevitably to a “where” that is a “when” or a “why”? His little anthropomorphic men, more similar to eggs than men, as well as strange characters filiform with a big balloon head like aliens invite us to abandon symbols, interpretation grids, coded images.

With Monteoliveto Gallery from 2009, the artist had solo exhibitions in NAPLES, NICE and PARIS and BERLIN and participates as resident artist to many art fairs in Italy and Europe. In July 2011 a professional Jury awarded him the «Artists from around the World Cannes»  Trophy, the City of Cannes Golden Palm during the Fair at Palais des Festivals in Cannes under the patronage of Marina Picasso. He was also selected to participate to the 2011 Biennale of Venice Padiglione Italia with Puglia Region.  His works are in many private collections.
