Alessio was born in 1980 at Velletri, Italy and studied art in college before graduating in Scienze Storico-Artictiche (a combination of art history and applied art science) at Rome at University La Sapienza. A modern figurative painter and sculptor he prefers to paint with oil but is also adept with other mediums. In sculpture he uses marble within mosaics, engravings, classical scale sculpture models and base reliefs.
Alessio’s artistic expression maintains the teachings from history’s masters but is refreshed and contextualized by the daily life of those who use art to provoke. The provocation of his art is to intentionally leave each piece open to interpretation, inciting you to think and giving the audience the freedom to choose the meaning of each piece.
His latest Project En to Pan (One is All) explores the concept of the Money God. Money not only as a method of payment but also a symbol of power and wealth, limit and dependency.
Alessio has participated in various group exhibitions alonside other well known artists such as
Piero Dorazio, Mimmo Rotella, Antonio Corpora, Ennio Calabria, Pino Pacali and Sante Monachesi.
Previous exhibitions include Identity Cards, Cori, 2008, Dal Figurativo all’Astratto (From Figurative to the Abstract), Rome, 2009 and in 2010 he organised a solo exhibition at the San Pietro sopra le acque, Historic Residence of Mass Martana.
In 2012 his work was exhibited at the collective contemporary art exhibition in Latina and also in the Galleria Coronari 111 in Rome.
Alessio’s first UK exhibition was at Architecture and Design Expo 100% in London where his marble sculptures and mosaics were selected for display at a prestigious Italian Design Stand.
In 2016 he organised an interactive audio visual exhibition and theatre event to celebrate the life of acclaimed poet, write and director Pier Paolo Pasolini. Throughout the exhibition a volume of portraits displayed the personality and troubles of this Italian great accompanied by music, film extracts and live performances.
In 2017 he exhibited his art and sculpture within the Fringe Festival of Windsor and created portraits of the conductor Claudio di Meo during live performances at Kings Langley. These works focused on the moment when music, art and nature all blend together into a single effect and emotion that envelops our entire perception.
Over 2018 he has participated in several exhibitions across Windsor as part of the Windsor Artists Group, most of all at the Windsor Contemporary Art Fair in November.
Alessio’s interest in art is more than just the visual aspects, instead his interest and passion mingle with music: “Art knows no boundaries, these simply distance us from the essence of creation”.
From 2019 he works for a new ambitious art exhibition: iRenaissance.
Through the paintings of iRenaissance, he wins the Uozzart Special Prize for the competition "Arts in Rome 2020", exhibiting before in Rome at the Spazio Cima gallery and after in Florence at the OnArt Gallery.
