Vadalà Angelo

Angelo Vadalà is an Italian artist who was born in Messina in 1940. He started painting at the age of 12. When he turned 18, Vadalà left Sicily to live and study in Florence, officially to attend university and study architecture. After studying for two years at the Florence University of Architecture, Vadalà found himself distracted by what that beautiful city's many museums contained, and not by the stone and wood that housed the art. His desire to capture a movement or a moment in time on canvas or in clay called him out of the study of building structures. His greatest need was to capture the human form, in all its beauty and majesty, and be part of the long legacy of Italian artists who came before him. The city of Florence itself became his source of inspiration; Leonardo DaVinci, Velázquez and Caravaggio, are teachers. By studying architecture, Vadalà had acquired a foundation in the art and technique of drawing. Combined with his innate artistic talent and his personal study of art in the museums and churches of Florence, he paid the same meticulous attention to mastering the painting techniques as they applied to the human form. Throughout the 1960s, Vadalà continued his art studies alone. In the late 1960s he went to New York where he was influenced by the new realism movement and the new American figurative painting style. Over the next ten years, he developed his personal style, based on technical perfection and dream themes. In the 1980s, he began to explore neoclassical art, oriental art, and romantic myths. Today he is considered one of the best contemporary portrait painters in Italy. He has received awards in many art competitions throughout Italy, as well as numerous commissions for public works and for the Catholic Church. Vadalà's work has been featured in museum exhibitions in his native Italy and in the United States, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Today Vadalà lives and works in Florence and Milan. While Vadalà continues to take portrait commissions and paint unique and masterful figurative works, he has recently started a series of city scenes (Venice, Jerusalem) in his precise and original style. The cityscapes are magical and extraordinary, yet instantly recognizable.
