Based in: Italy
In his artistic exploration, Vito Difilippo, born in Monopoli in 1988, draws inspiration from the fiery expanses of Tavoliere, the vast blue of the endless sea, and the immensity of the Apulian sky. These natural elements form the starting point of his artistic production, where he seeks to translate the mystery of nature onto canvas, spanning from a self-taught approach to painting, from abstract expressionism to conceptual art, and to Arte Povera.
What fascinates Difilippo is the very essence of things, a constant striving towards the Truth, the Absolute, and the Spiritual in art. Difilippo finds a deep connection with the essence of things. He uses simple and common materials, transforming them into meaningful works of art that reflect the beauty of simplicity and the depth of everyday life. He combines deliberate color layering with improvised composition, reminiscent of the improvisation found in jazz. This marriage of planning and spontaneity creates an intriguing and dynamic atmosphere, inviting the observer to immerse themselves in the complex artworks.
