© Massimo Lagrotteria
Massimo Lagrotteria is an Italian painter who has already exhibited in both solo and group events in Italy, Belgium, France, Poland and the United States. In 2019, his paintings were on display at ETRU, the National Etruscan Museum in Rome, and at Museum Marino Marini in Florence. His artworks are part of several collections, both private and in museums. With his works, painted mainly in oil, Massimo is seeking an unattainable balance through a slow, inexorable subtraction. For him the lightness is associated with precision and determination, not with vagueness and abandonment to the case. The search of the figure is certainly crucial in his work. Each body takes shape with the same technique, but looks always slightly different. After his working figuratively, he observes the human weakness and emotions of insufficiency in the universe. At present, he collaborates with størpunk and various galleries in Emilia, Veneto and Liguria in Italy, as well as Belgium and Switzerland.
