Collection: Paolo Maggis

The painter Paolo Maggis (Milan, 1978) studied at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts, lives and works between Milan and Barcelona. He has exhibited in important museums, including Palazzo Forti in Verona, Palazzo Collicola in Spoleto, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin, Cini Foundation in Venice, Klinger Forum in Leipzig, Osthaus Museum in Hagen, Serrone of Villa Reale in Monza. The fundamental subject of his work is painting, a body that moves freely in an architecture of different grammars and registers thus determining the visual dynamics and the transmission of energy. The subject-reference, bond to the corporeity, becomes for the painting a mental reason to express itself in large and energetic brushstrokes weaving a complex and articulated visual structure, sometimes through bright and contrasting colours, some others through tepid and tonal ones. Always attracted by the gestures of the pictorial action, Paolo Maggis focuses on a new research trajectory, all turned toward the expressive vigour of the medium
