SHORT BIOGRAPHY

Daniele Bongiovanni is an Italian painter and professor born in Palermo in 1986. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Palermo, where he received a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree in Fine Arts with honors, respectively, with a thesis on Oskar Kokoschka's expressionism and with a thesis on a concept of deconstruction in Western painting from the 16th to the 20th century.

Recognizable for the peculiar style of ''white skies'', his painting has always been focused on natural space and the human figure. Basically his subjects, although inspired by external reality, have consistently maintained a partially idealized and rarefied configuration, characteristics motivated by a deep conceptuality. «It's the result of a remarkable evolution of his research in the direction of a radical will to essentialize, or if you want to sublimate, the figurative language» (from the text Daniele Bongiovanni. Con Pura Forma by Francesco Poli, 2019).

An artist working between Italy and the United States, over the years has realized several thematic cycles which he has presented, in solo and group exhibitions, but also in special projects, in cultural institutions, galleries, and museums of major Italian and foreign cities; in Greece, Ireland, Lithuania, New Zealand, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and overseas.
